Stories of Illawarra Rd is a guided audio journey by Marrickville’s locals both past and present. You will hear many of them at the locations these stories have taken place. A narrator will guide you to stop and listen in front of homes, playgrounds, laneways and shopfronts. A walk down Illawarra Road is a walk-through time.
These stories represent only a part of Marrickville’s rich and deep history. There are many stories that are not told and many we could not tell. Marrickville is a very loved place by those who live there and have lived there, we didn’t meet anyone who wasn’t proud of their Marrickville. Illawarra Road is stunning. When you walk down/up you are walking through the heart of Marrickville. And each block has its own heart beat.
We hope you enjoy it!
