At Risk

In November 2013, the NSW Minister for Heritage approved a recommendation from the NSW Heritage Council that the Glebe Island Bridge be placed on the State Heritage Register.
The Glebe Estate and its current parlous condition continues to concern this Society.

Protection of Heritage

In a rapidly changing environment, the Glebe Society robustly supports the preservation and conservation of the suburb’s diverse Victorian and Federation buildings and landmarks.


Some of this State’s most influential early architects lived in Glebe and some of their work still survives here

Building Types

The casual observer can easily identify a wide range of housing types in Glebe, from the Regency mansion, suburban villa, the large terrace, the small single-storey terrace to the freestanding cottage, a diversity reflecting the wide array of occupational groups that have made Glebe their home.
