The Society for Preservation of the Artifacts of Surgery & Medicine consists entirely of members and volunteers with an interest in history of and the preservation of moveable heritage items and memorabilia from both the hospital and non-hospital sectors of nursing and medicine.

The collection began as a teaching collection within the Department of Anaesthetics at the then Lidcombe Hospital and it grew over time to include many other items no longer used in the practice of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, pathology, general practice, surgery and anaesthesia.

As the collection grew larger and a group of volunteers became established it was decided to create an organisation that would provide protection for the collection and ensure its preservation.

Display includes old suture materials ‚a kangaroo tendon, silkworm gut, black silk, catgut and many others materials no longer in use.

Please wear closed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Tools and gloves will be provided.

Paddy's Night Food Markets, Flemington

Paddy's Night Food Markets, Flemington
10/02/2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

One of Sydney’s best fresh food markets, Paddy’s Markets in Flemington, is taking its show into the night, bringing together some of the city’s best food trucks for a new weekly night food market. Starting July 1, the massive car park venue will be transformed into a bustling eatery for street food lovers every Saturday night from 6.30–10.30pm.

Over 25 of Sydney’s veteran and up-and-comers in the food truck scene will converge on the car park, including Chur Burger, Kayter Co., Maverick Wings and Dirty Bird. Sit at one of the converted crate tables and tuck into delights such as gelato brioche, chocolate gözleme and soda served out of lightbulbs. Menus will change regularly to match a monthly theme, so you can constantly change it up — even if you visit the same food vendor.

Entry is free — as are the retro arcade games, including Daytona and Pac-Man — and there will be regular live music by resident DJ Mike Hyper and special guests. Free parking is also available on-site.
