Ever wondered where the iconic Aussie rotary mower, Victa, originated? Mervyn Victor Richardson took “borrowing your neighbours lawn mower” to a whole new level when he laid eyes on the petrol-driven rotary mower designed by neighbor Lawrence Hall, a Marine Engineer, in 1948. Come and learn more.
The City of Canada Bay has a very rich history. One boundary is the Parramatta River, which was the reason so many of the large industries of Sydney moved there. The other boundry, Parramatta Road, was originally a rough bush track between Sydney Cove and Parramatta. The Longbottom Stockade was a halfway stopping place for convicts walking to Parramatta, but it also played other parts in our history. It was at times a prison, police barracks, government farm and timber mill. It was here, in 1840, that the French Canadian Exiles were housed following the uprising in Canada
