Uniting Waverley Estate Heritage Celebrations

Join us on Sunday 22 May 2022, 10am-2pm.

Enjoy a free barista-made coffee and a barbeque in our beautiful picnic area. Bring a picnic blanket to relax on the lawn, play some games, or explore our pop-up museum and historic photo display.

Take a walking tour and find out more about who lived here and how the buildings have served the community for over 100 years.

Uniting has been providing community health and aged care services in Waverley for over 100 years. We’ve been planning for the future and looking at ways we can restore and enhance the Uniting Waverley Estate for many years to come.

Our vision is to continue to support the Waverley community by providing quality, person-centred aged care and community services, that respond to people’s changing needs. Our services will promote health, wellbeing and connection, in welcoming settings that conserve and respect Uniting Waverley’s rich history.

The War Memorial Hospital is an important building within the Waverley Estate that Uniting is committed to preserving. Uniting is exploring the potential expansion of the hospital’s services, but right now our focus is on improving and redeveloping the areas and buildings around the Hospital.

Heritage gardens

We plan to preserve the historic plantings in the ‘formal’ garden while retaining the overall character of the existing heritage precinct. Complementing the heritage values of the site are 'informal' residential gardens with new tree plantings to the western, lower section of the Estate.  This will create intimate spaces suitable for residents and their visitors to enjoy.

Concept master plan

Disclaimer: All items contained within this website are principles and ideas. The design is at a proposed concept master plan stage to inform and support the community consultation and planning proposal. They are not final master plans or Development Application documents. If successful with the planning proposals, Uniting will take the approvals that are received and consider items such as Waverley Council’s proposed site-specific Development Control Plan, develop a concept master plan that is reflective of the controls and then refine the plan to support a Development Application.  The Development Application is subject to the statutory planning process. Illustrations are concepts only and subject to changes to satisfy statutory planning authorities, which will consider applications and provide any approvals.
