Hundreds of committed volunteers and generous donors make this possible.

Addi Road: a rich history

Only just over 200 years ago, the land here at Addi Road was a seasonal wetland on the edge of a tall ironbark and turpentine forest cared for by the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

From 1916 Addison Road was an army barracks, then in 1976, the Commonwealth handed over a tired and dilapidated army depot for recreational and community use.
