Discovering Quay Quarter
To communicate what makes the precinct so alluring, we commissioned a team of editorial writers – including Stephen Lacy who writes for titles such as the Good Weekend, and photographers Saskia Wilson and Anna Pogossova, whose work has featured in magazines such as Vogue Living, Frankie Magazine and Smith Journal – to partner with us on creating a legitimate magazine that would be of genuine interest to all.
The magazine is an opportunity to tell the story of some of Australia’s most iconic and rare heritage properties, including Hinchcliffe House, which was built in 1845 by the reputed “wool king” Andrew Hinchcliffe. From its original use as a wool storage house, the 174-year-old property has been used by St Vincent de Paul, a hostel for homeless men, a chapel, and an English school. According to the Office of Environment & Heritage, Hinchcliffe House “demonstrates the use of Circular Quay as a principal trading port of the colony of NSW”, with original authentic features such as cathead pulleys, internal post and beam construction and exposed timber floors.
