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.
