and the GREAT AUSTRALIAN DREAM
From October 20th 2023
In 2020 the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum & Gallery was gifted the complete business archive of Henry F. Halloran & Co., which spans the years 1898 to 1953. At the forefront of urban planning in the 20thCentury and the shift from crowded cities to the garden suburbs many of his developments were in coastal areas where he recognised the potential for balanced lifestyles and holidays by the sea. His developments on the coast of New South Wales extended from Port Stephens to Jervis Bay.
This exhibition charts our desire for the Great Australian Dream – a belief that to own a home in a desirable location would lead to a healthy, prosperous, and happy life. Henry Halloran's planning ideals still shape our expectations of the place we live today.
