Yaralla Estate

The Dame Eadith Walker Estate, also known as Yaralla Estate, is 37 hectares of land on the banks of the Parramatta River at Concord.

Yaralla is an Aboriginal word for dwelling place.

It is of outstanding cultural significance to NSW, having direct historical links with the early days of the colony of NSW. It remains an exceptionally rare complete example of a large Edwardian private residential estate so close to a major city.

Sydney Local Health District maintains the estate in accordance with the wishes of the Walker Trust. Set up in the 1930s by the important mercantile and philanthropic Walker family, it is the largest community bequest of its era to survive in an intact form in NSW.

The Dame Eadith Walker Estate is listed on the Register of The National Estates and is classified by The National Trust of Australia (NSW).

Yaralla – for our community

Since 1988 the Estate has remained in use for health- related purposes, managed by Sydney Local Health District, including for palliative care for people living with HIV-related dementia, a day stay unit for patients with dementia, a step down clinic for rehabilitation for the NSW Statewide Burns Injury Service.

The Yaralla Estate Community Advisory Committee was established in late 2013. Its role is to advise the Chief Executive of Sydney Local Health District on maintaining and using the estate for the benefit of the Local Health District and the community.

The grounds of the Yaralla Estate are open year round for the community to explore.
 

Foreshore trail

Sydney Local Health District has upgraded some of the pathways and the foreshore trail at Yaralla Estate. The new pathways are in keeping with the paths along The Drive and the western paddock.
