Sydney's Connection To The South Seas Urban Ambling

    • Places & Travel

Near the western end of Bridge Street, there is a wonderful Victorian Building called Burns Philip House. It is worth just standing and quietly taking it in, as unusual as such behaviour is for us all these days.
This episode focuses on this building, its origins and the people who founded the company that occupied it for many years. The Burns Philip Company was a shipping and freight company in the South Pacific Seas, hence the title.
It also pioneered tourism to the islands , including New Guinea , in the early 20th Century.
The episode then touches upon some nearby points of interest.

Happy ambling.
