DR MARY BOOTH RESERVE WALKWAY AND KIRRIBILLI FORESHORE

Kirribilli, NSW

Restoring this unique landscape on the Sydney Harbour foreshores involved sensitive wall restoration, the conservation of historic tidal baths, the establishment of new bridges, and path access that retains one of the few unmodified natural sandstone outcrops on the inner city’s shoreline. The steep track has been replaced with an award-winning elegant elevated steel walkway, described by then mayor Genia McCaffery as a “complex project so it’s fantastic to have it recognised in this way”.
