Doreen was very excited to receive her copy of Remembering Eurimbla. I have read several excerpts to her. Unfortunately Mum is unable to read text anymore. That said, Doreen loves to show her copy of the book to the Staff at her Aged Care Facility. Once again, thank you for such a wonderful history of Eurimbla Precinct. When Mum moved from 33 to Stella Maris I was genuinely heartbroken. Such wonderful memories. Paul Gumbley
We have really enjoyed the book! Thank you for collaborating on such a wonderful social history of Eurimbla Avenue.
’and was very impressed by the scope, detail and presentation of the work. Such an important piece of history to capture. I would like to purchase one for our collection here at the ATC as I think it is an important part of our local history that has connections to the racecourse.’ Hannah Hibbert Archivist Royal Randwick Racecourse
Congratulations on a super publication. Job well done!
I have been enjoying the book and [my husband and I think that it is a remarkable achievement.
I had a quick look and yes My great grandparents, my Grandfather and family are listed as connected with Magill St. I remember the Sandhills and only bush at the end of Magill St they say that's history. A big thank you to those who have put the history of this area in writing. I have read pages 37/38 - 1883 4 Magill St and it fits in with when I researched my ancestors and also what my mother told me about her life living in Magill St. What an ending to 2020 a book that has me smiling.
The book is absolutely fabulous. Loved reading through it. You folks did an amazing job.
I just want to thank you so much for this wonderful book. [My husband] and I have spent all afternoon looking through it, and enjoying all the amazing research that you have done. What a marvelous collection of stories, facts, history and photos!! It is truly a delight to read through. We have a lot of books on our shelves, but I think that this is going to be one of the most special!! I can't thank you enough for preserving all those memories for so many of us. Congratulations!! It is a really beautiful book
[My son] has given me the book. It's fantastic. You guys did a sterling job, you should be very, very proud of your achievement. It's beautifully documented and illustrated. Thank you so much for all your effort.
Oh my goodness. I showed mum the section on [our] family in the book and she cried out of pure joy. Mum is 94. She looked at the photos and the people and it brought back so many fond memories.

This book describes the history of the Eurimbla Precinct area, a historically significant part of Randwick, New South Wales, Australia.
The project commenced prior to demolition which resulted from a compulsory acquisition by the New South Wales Government to make way for the expansion of the Prince of Wales Hospital.
The book traces early settlement from the 1850s to the present day, using oral histories, memoirs and photographs of past and present residents as well as historical records, both primary from national and local archives and secondary, such as local newspapers from the 1920s.
A comprehensive collection of historical information was gathered with a focus on early land use, development of housing and analysis of oral history interviews from past residents.
