Dictionary of Sydney
Look it up
If it happened in Sydney, it belongs in the city’s online historical dictionary.
Put together as a collaborative not-for-profit venture in digital public history, it’s an ever-growing resource you can trust. Universities, cultural institutions, historical societies and historians, including the City’s History Unit, are all contributing to this amazing resource.
The site details the history of the entire Sydney metropolitan area, not just areas covered by the City. More than 700 suburbs are covered, with each entry complete with demographic information and precise boundary maps.
Information is presented using images, film, sound and historical essays. Users are welcome to add feedback or suggest information for the site.
The Dictionary of Sydney is our city’s history, online and connected.
