Dictionary of Sydney

Connect to Dictionary of Sydney


The Dictionary of Sydney is a groundbreaking project to produce a new kind of history of Sydney: online, growing and changing, covering every aspect of human life in this place.

Geographically, the Dictionary of Sydney includes the whole Sydney basin and spans the years from the earliest human habitation to the present.

The Dictionary contains new historical writing enriched with other resources and images, maps, sound, music, oral history, film, documents and pointers to important objects in Sydney collections. New material will be added regularly, and linked to what is already there.

Topics include artefacts, buildings, events, natural features, organisations, people, places and structures.
