Council is proud to have launched People of Rose Bay. A FREE open-air portrait photography exhibition aimed at connecting our community to the iconic people and stories behind Rose Bay businesses.

The featured portraits of local business owners were installed in multiple locations around Rose Bay Centre (Collins Street, Collins & Percival Lane, Percival Park, Newcastle Street, & Dover Road) enabling the public to enjoy the exhibition through lane-ways, parks, streets, footpaths and shopfronts.

The experience was interactive, with each portrait containing a QR code that links the viewer back to the businesses, their stories, special offers, competitions and more.

People of Rose Bay is supported by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment as part of the Festival of Place Summer Night Fund.

See all the People of Rose Bay portraits and read about their stories.
