Elizabeth Street

Looking north along Elizabeth Street, you can just see a glimpse of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Elizabeth Street was originally known as Mulgrave Street, but was renamed by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1810 for his second wife, Elizabeth Henrietta Campbell (1778-1835).


  1. So glad he changed it. Isn't Mulgrave a boring sounding name!

  2. Hi,

    I had a chance to visit your site through a travel blog. I must say photographs you have shared are amazing.

    I maintain a travel blog that includes a separate section on Travel Photos & Videos.I would like to mention A View of Sydney there. If you're interested, please send me an email at and I'll provide you with more details.

    Best Regards
