I can't wait for that massive water fountain to be completed. I just wish they allowed more pedestrian space in front of it for disabled people and those who are waiting for busses. Also for pedestrians walking by. I am saying this because I think that the commuters are just as important as the nice fountain. Just a little oversight by council that can always get fixed later...I think.

My take on the remembrance of those brave soldiers during today's Anzac March in Sydney #wewillrememberthem #lestweforget

Lest we forget

A beautiful city

Autumn vibes on campus in 1974 🍁


Comment on Facebook

Walking up Basser Steps from The Parade Theatre to John Clancy Auditorium in 3 inch wooden heel clogs with a 10 minute class turnover. Jockeying for a carpark in High Street and mastering the downhill /uphill reverse park. After tutorial drinks at ‘The Decline...’, and examinations at the Union Building. Lunchtime political meetings on the lawn outside the Menzies Library. Watching planes land or following the ponies , from the 10th floor of the Applied Science building when you should’ve been doing a lab. Enjoying live theatre at The Parade for the two dollar student discount. Great time of my life. ‘72-‘76.

I was also a student at UNSW then (1972 to 1975). A great time for universities and for students! All things were possible and life was pretty exciting.

Those were the times my friend! A free tertiary education based on merit!

Fond memories. 1974 was my last part time undergraduate year and third year working on campus in the academic / non academic Appointments Office of the Bursars Division. Finished up with an ASIO file for regular attendance at lunch time rallies on the Library lawn for god sake! Found that out when I got my DoD security clearance when later working for Sperry Univac Computer Systems for access to employees on their Canberra based mainframe sites. Those definitely were the days!

My 2nd year at UNSW, and first year of Medicine. I had hair and was at least 20 kg's lighter. The Years condemn !!!

I remember that walk- Psych was where NIDA is now and housed in army sheds, and Maths/ Economics was up in CLB 7 ( Top of Basser steps I think)- could do that walk well within the 10 minutes needed. i finished in 73

Photo exactly from the time I was there at the Uni. 1972 to 1976. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times". Too much to study! And no laptop to help.

I was there when tertiary education was given to all. A lot of exercise going from Anzac Perade to upper campus.

I was there 1991 -1994. I miss all that is around it including the Baxter steps, Round house, my beloved International House, the square house, Randwick nearby. Lovely Kensington campus!!! My love for UNSW

I started there in 1974 and remember that vista and free education....what a wonderful man Gogh Whitlam was!

I was also a student UNSW 1971 to 1974 I remember those bell bottom pants ! And the protests against Vietnam , lunch outside the Library , some great times at the local wine bars ! Yes I remember that walk to psychology classes . Great memories

1974 I graduated. I completed my B.Sc Food Technology. Wonderful times.Whitlam was very kind, which enabled me to enrol for post graduate studies. I completed my Ph.D. Food Technology in 1979. Everybody was so kind at the Department of Food Technology. I am grateful to my all teachers there, particularly to my supervisor during my postgrad studies and Head of the department.

Hey here's one out of left field. THE Really Hottest Babe, and I was TOO shy, and nobody will believe it now, nEVEr was Then Michelle Hanson (Hansen) from Clovelly, went to St Claires at Charing Cross, THE lost love , She went to UNSW , dunno what degree. Would be Amazing to say Ello, and what did your life become. ?

I had a remembrance of few professors, pro. W. R. Blunden, Dr. J. A. Black, Mr J. I. Tindall professor Blunden was the head of the department of school of Transportation and Traffic. Professor Blunden was already passed away but I don't know about other professors. They are all very good and helpful.

Having a lot of memories during my study in this University. It was almost 3.5 years study in UNSW (1987-1990) and having a lot of memories, fully struggle but enjoyed and nice university's environment.

1976 Engineering free education with $200 every 2 weeks from Whitlam government, back again 1986 law school...only last year need to pay...those were the days ..they did end.

That was my final year in UNSW.. remember that walk vividly.. this photo brings back a lot of sweet memories.. thank you for posting it..

Was there during that period. Does anybody remember “The Wizard”, and his “Wench of the day”? Think he may have been a year or 2 earlier.

I “walked the walk “ from 1970-1973. Good days! Uni was also where my husband and I “courted “ !! Ok you young ones go google what that means!

All my subjects were an easy walk during my bachelor degree. My Dip Ed subjects were on Western Campus and finished at 5 pm. I was at UNSW from 1976 to 1979.

Just how I remember it! 1974 was my first year doing Science. Lost count of the times up and down Basser steps from one end of the campus to the other.

Yep ! Best three years of my life !! 71 to 73 !! Commerce ! Love the round house cafeteria! Is it still there ?!oh the blue room was my regular meeting place between lectures.

I had been there from 1984 - 1989 during my Masters and PhD studies in the School of Food Science & Technology. I have many sweet memories in the campus of UNSW. A lot of exercise going from Anzac Perade to upper campus.

I remember that long walk way from Anzac Pde up to the science and engineering buildings of lower campus - now all buildings!

I attended Kensington Campus in it’s first years,Early 1950’s. Big change from the Tech at Ultimo.. Penni (daughter) attended Ultimo remains, in the late 1970’s..

Gate 9 to CLB? That's like 50 metres. If they can get from the buses on Anzac Parade to upper campus in 5 minutes, I'll be seriously impressed.

Still salty I didn’t win 😰

You should do Anzac Parade near Barker St to Wallace Wurth or E26 in under 10 mins because you are running late for a lab 😇😇😇😇

Louise Li why are you so cute

Shem Rohan James Amelia whoever is making these needs to be stopped

Roza Tawdrous but have u ever tried sprinting from lower campus to upper campus at Kensington

I'm 25 can I still enrolled ?

Jack Hills

Leaving single use disposable coffee cups on the bench and walking off? Really UNSW you're promoting that?

Cath and Andy should be disqualified as they littered !!!!! its not that hard to put your garbage in the bin, there are tonnes of bins all over campus!! UNSW

There are many things to brag about with Potts Point. It is a real village and the residents mostly go out of their way to make it work. Its heritage is treasured and, of course, it can boast some of Sydney's most interesting eateries and small bars. There's lots of negatives too and many residents feel the CoS has abandoned the area because of a few vocal and legal ratbags. Our main concern is Macleay street which has been sorely neglected when one compares with revitalisation programs in Redfern, Surrey Hills and other local areas. The foot paving is a disgrace and , frankly, dangerous, especially for older residents who continually fall on the very uneven and extremely ugly continually patched and sprayed (by utilities) bitumen (which would be better suited as a tarmac). It is time for this much-loved and much-used street to be given a tile slab finish (see Double Bay, Mosman or a hundred other main street paving) and better street refuse bins and landscaping (there's currently half a dozen different tree surrounds, all dog-ugly). We could also do with less signage and better street cleansing. Apart from all that... we love the place.

Viva Hair on Crick Ave next to Joe the Juicer....BEST hairdressers in Potts Point! Andy is FABULOUS!!!...I have naturally curly hair and am very particular about my colour...Andy goes above and beyond in service to help me achieve the look I love!!!!...VIVA TO VIVA!!!!

Jangling Jacks is a great little bar on Victoria St. Very friendly knowledgeable staff, great drinks and an excellent atmosphere. Plus the set up inside is beautiful. Worth a look if you haven’t been 👍

Saturday mornings are the best. Catch a morning yoga class at Body Mind Life , then head to the markets for breakfast - your pick. Youre spoiled for choice on variety from Jimmy Liks, to a korean breakfast burrito or an açai bowl.

My favourite thing about potts point is that it’s so quiet and boring Saturday nights you can actually hear your own thoughts saying “why on earth is it so expensive to live here? 🤔”

Lovely fountain - but I hate the fact that the florist at the Saturday market rinses his tubs in it and leaves all sorts of junk in it!

I definitely think that Silly Tart Kitchen deserves a mention. Such a lovely place for coffee/brunch in the green patio. The Roosevelt is also amazing for a cocktail or three to start off your night, or to show off on a first date.

Rosé Royale in Potts Point!! Best place for an after work drink or a lazy weekend 🙌🏻🍷

Best Thai food EVER is Pad Thai, Roslyn street - actual fresh vegetables and not drowning in palm oil sauce. Friendly staff, no frills, and outstanding value for money.

My favourites are gone - they stood no chance against the lockout laws

LEO on Roslyn street - AMAZING club sandwiches and coffee 🙏

Will you also cover Woolloomooloo in #sydneylocal?

This place to find in Maclay street next to king cross

Lil Darlin on Victoria street. Tell John Apples that Nat sent you - the best cocktails and lazy crazy cool atmosphere. You'll love it 🤗

My favourite fountain -

Very good coffee and amazing sandwiches in 'Jeremy and sons' near by this fountain. Also a lot of good restaurants in the area such as Fratelli Paradiso, Cho Cho san and Billy Kwong :)

"Junny's coffee" is the hole in the wall coffee shop at the entrance to the train station on Darlinghurst Rd. No sign. Fast and friendly service. GOOD COFFEE ❤❤

Llankelly Lane is such a gem, day and night has all you’d ever need!

I love the nightlife...oh, wait...

Farmhouse restaurant- best in Sydney for sure

Jangling Jacks!!

lovely Sydney <3 <3

Harris Farm - love it.

Jonathan Leeming I feel like you'd have a lot!

Cristina Forlani yes you are 👌👌👌
