Front Inscription


Lloyd Rees (1895-1988) artist and one of Sydney's finest landscape painters, lived and worked in the McMahons Point area from 1931 to 1934. He lived with his wife, Marjory, first at "Moana", 51 East Crescent Street and then at "Keanah", 26 East Crescent Street.

The drawings of Sydney Harbour and the surrounding neighbourhood of McMahons Point helped to establish his reputation as an artist. He returned to work here in the 1940s and 1950s and his Wynne Prize-winning painting The Harbour from McMahons Point is of the view from this spot.

This Lookout honours his name and the time he spent on this side of the Harbour creating an important pictorial record of our changing landscape.
