An extraordinary story of survival against the odds.
The Sirius apartments beside the Sydney Harbour Bridge were built as a result of the 1970s Green Bans and the Battle for The Rocks. In 2017 the NSW Government wants Sirius and its residents erased from the landscape, but its demolition has been halted by a Land and Environment Court judgment. The World Monuments Fund has placed Sirius on its Watch List of twenty-five at-risk sites around the globe.
The story of Sirius and its residents has captured the heart of Sydney and attention around the world. Myra, aged 90, is the only remaining resident.
