Darlinghurst Fire Station Sydney Open

With great delight the public who signed up for Sydney Open – held annually for the last ten years the by Sydney Living Museum – were able to experience the real life world behind the doors of Darlinghurst Fire Station. Access was open to 50 buildings that are typically locked to the public. Fire Stations and ‘firies’ have such a symbolic role still in culture and the buildings are so specific in their design that it was intriguing to see what was inside. It didnt disappoint either.

The station replaced the former one on Victoria Street and was designed by Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon in the Federation Style. And it still remains an attractive, functional ornament in Darlinghurst loaded with emotion and the critical role that firies do to keep us dafe.
