Rhodes 1912 Poster Uhrs Point Estate

The Rhodes Peninsula, located in the City of Canada Bay Local Government Area lies astride the Parramatta River close to Sydney Olympic Park. It is one of Sydney's most significant post-industrial landscapes and represents a rapidly changing urban environment.

An important component of the renewal of the Rhodes Peninsula, which will result in a new urban community, is the cultural meaning associated with the area. As Rhodes completes its transition from a once heavy industrial site of the 20th century, to a new residential, business and commercial precinct of the 21st century, exploring the cultural meanings associated with the area are essential. Bringing a range of histories and stories associated with Rhodes' industrial past, environmental heritage, Parramatta River foreshore location and culturally diverse communities into the broader public sphere will assist in supporting local residents, visitors and workers in creating a cohesive community who together, can experience a strong sense of well being. 

The use of the River by the Wangal, the vistas of early settlement, the industrial landscape, the extraordinary remediation story and the emerging intercultural community all resonate with meaning and imagery. The Rhodes narrative has the potential to inspire art that interprets place in a way that is continually engaging for residents and visitors.
