History


Rosebery was named after Archibald Phillip Primrose, the fifth Earl of RoseberyPrime Minister of the United Kingdom in 1894–95. The suburb was named in his honour after his visit to Australia for two months in 1883–84.

Rosebery was once the site of Rosebery Racecourse, which first opened as a pony track in 1906. Race meetings held by the Associated Racing Clubs became as popular as those at Randwick, especially in the 1920s. The track became an army camp during World War I, After the war, it became a training track used by the Sydney Turf Club.

In 1961, much of the land was purchased by the Rosebery Town Planning Company and developed as an industrial area. The housing commission purchased the remaining acres for high density public housing. The area north of Gardeners Road was developed by Richard Stanton (1862–1943) and the same company that developed Haberfield, with the result that Rosebery is known as a 'garden suburb'. Garden competitions were held in the suburb prior to the 1990s. Houses are predominantly single-storey California bungalows, Federation Bungalows or "standard" suburban detached homes.

 

 

Commercial area

 

A small shopping centre is located on Gardeners Rd. Commercial and industrial developments are also located on and around Botany Rd.

 

 

Schools

 

Gardeners Road Primary School is the public school for the area and is located at the junction of Gardeners Rd and Botany Rd. St Therese's School is a Catholic school next to St Therese's Church, Sutherland St On Rosebery Avenue is The International Film School Sydney.

 

 

Parks

 

There is a large park in the middle of Rosebery called Turruwul Park, which is bounded by Harcourt Parade and Hayes Rd. A smaller park is Crete Reserve, situated at the bottom of Rosebery Ave. Other small parks are located at Lever St, where there is a scout hall, and the corner of Harris and Coward St. There is also a park in Kimberley Grove. However, the nighttime lighting of Turruwul Park results in a more active night sport situation.
