165-171 Australia Street, Camperdown. Sydney, New South Wales

This row of eight double storey terrace houses has a former corner store on its end terrace situated on the corner of Lands Lane.  The row runs along Australia Street between Federation Lane and Lands Lane. The houses themselves are built up to the property line on the street with their double storey verandahs.  There are parapets on each house in the Melbourne style, however they stagger up the hills either singularly or in pairs in typical Sydney fashion.  The parapets hide the steeple of large gabled corrugated iron roofs with chimneys.  They have a central raised curve simulating a semi-circular pediment atop a set of string courses and a circle motif with a heavy cornice below.   The party walls are decorated with scrolls at the upper level and acanthus leaves and scrolls at the lower level.
