Sussex Street, Sydney

Corn Exchange, built in 1887.

Sussex Street is a street in the central business district of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. It runs north-south along the western side of the city, between Hickson Road and Hay Street. It is in the local government area of the City of Sydney. The street is 1.7 kilometres (1.1 mi) long.[1] It was named in honour of Prince Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex, the sixth son of King George III.

The street is home to the state headquarters of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) and "Sussex St" is widely used as a metonym for the ALP in general and for ALP headquarters in particular.

DescriptionEdit

Sussex Street is adjacent to Darling Harbour and as such has a wide range of buildings associated with the harbour activities and industries. In this respect it is similar to other streets like Kent Street and Wattle Street, whose character was largely influenced by their proximity to Darling Harbour.

The street features a large number of older, heritage buildings, alongside more recent developments like the Sheraton Four Points Hotel. It is in a part of the city that was depressed for a long time, but which has been revitalised recently.
