For more than 164 years, Sydney’s Central Station precinct has been a prime arrivals and departures point for the living. In earlier times, however, it fulfilled a similar purpose for the deceased: Devonshire Street Cemetery was the arrivals point for coffins, and the departures point for the afterlife. The construction and various extensions of the current station complex was an enormous undertaking, requiring a large-scale refashioning of the landscape and the demolition of a great number of historic buildings. Join Beatrice Scheepers for an exploration of the many stories - some old, some new, and some surprising - associated with one of Sydney’s grandest public buildings.
