Randwick Post Office (former) and Jubilee Fountain
Randwick Post Office is significant at a State level for its historical associations, strong aesthetic qualities and social value.
Randwick Post Office is historically significant because it is associated with the NSW Government Architect Walter Liberty Vernon, and is part of an important group of works by Vernon, a key practitioner of the Federation Free style. Randwick Post Office is also associated with the pattern of subdivision and the development of communications services in the Randwick area.
Randwick Post Office is aesthetically significant because it is a fine example of the Federation Free style, with strong visual appeal. It is located on a prominent corner site and makes a significant contribution to the streetscape of the Randwick civic precinct.
Randwick Post Office is also considered to be significant to the community of Randwick’s sense of place.
