About the program

Emphasis is placed on:

  • The changing socio-economic and ethnic demographic structure of the area
  • The changing economic character and subsequent changes in development of the area
  • The conservation of the heritage of the area as expressed through the architecture and streetscapes
  • Discussion of the growth and future trends of the area


Program structure

Museum teacher guides take students on a guided walk through the streets of Pyrmont beginning and ending at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

With the use of photographs of Pyrmont's past, students see the changing character of the area that has occurred over time. They visit various locations and are given the opportunity to ask questions, take photographs and complete a specially designed resource pack for use before, during and after your visit.


An optional cruise component can be added to this program.


Availability: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday
