South-eastern, primarily residential suburb. Named after the home town of Simeon Pearce in Gloucestershire, England, it is the location of the Randwick Racecourse and Prince of Wales Hospital.
Randwickby Pauline Curby, 2015
The City of Randwick in south-eastern Sydney is located on land that was once swamps and heath vegetation. Home to local Aboriginal people for thousands of years, the area remained relatively isolated to Europeans until the mid nineteenth century when Randwick village began to take shape. Little remains of this English-style village with development in post-war years dramatically changing the suburb.
