Heritage streets above Tarban Creek

HHT walkers enjoy Federation bungalow

A lovely sunny day added to the enjoyment of our stroll around the heritage streets of Isler, Sunnyside and Hillcrest above Tarban Creek. Built on the former Isler Estate and auctioned as 129 residential blocks in 1913, many of these attractive homes are still intact and their beautiful gardens were sparkling in the sunshine.

We all appreciated the enduring charm of their architecture and were intrigued at how a few years’ difference in construction resulted in small distinctions in style between Federation and Interwar homes.  We heard some charming local stories from residents and learnt about the real community spirit of this area.  What a treat for the HHT walkers.
