Broadway Name Origin
It had been called 'George Street South' and then 'George Street West'. After being widened in 1906 when the Central railway station was built, George Street west of Railway Square, it became known as 'The Broadway'. This name was subsequently shortened to just 'Broadway'.
Broadway Settlement History
Broadway is historically important because it is one of the first roads built in the colony of New South Wales, in 1794
Broadway was once a major retailing centre, and for 90 years was home to the flagship complex of department store chain Grace Brothers. The complex consisted of two stores on either side of Bay Street. It was visited by Queen Elizabeth II during her 1954 visit to Australia. Retailing on Broadway declined and the store was eventually closed in 1995. Today this site contains the Broadway Shopping Centre on the western side and the Hotel UniLodge Sydney on the eastern side.
