Redfern Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1817 when the first land grant was made. Growth was minimal until the 1870s and 1880s, when the area provided housing for people who worked in nearby factories and railway yards. Extensive housing estates were built during the early 1900s, with many Aboriginal people living in the area from the 1930s. From 1948 to 1970 significant redevelopment occurred, with many of the original working class houses demolished and replaced with multi-storey public housing. The population has increased gradually since the early 1990s, a result of new dwellings being added to the area.
Major features of the area include Surry Hills Shopping Village, Redfern Town Hall, Redfern Oval, Redfern Park, Edmund Resch Reserve and Reconciliation Park.
