Description[edit]

Park Street bisects Hyde Park, the oldest park in Australia. The park was created in 1810 by Governor Macquarie and has a state heritage listing.[2] Publishing and Broadcasting Limited and its successor, Consolidated Media Holdings, had their corporate headquarters at 54 Park Street.[3]

An electric tramway formerly ran down Park Street between Elizabeth and College Streets. It was removed in 1960.
