Fayworth House could make a lovely hotel conversion, with a couple of additional floors for good measure. Love the clock and the pediments.

I think this building was the venue for an important meeting of indigenous people in the late 1930s.

Yes, in 1938:

Quote:
The Cyprus-Hellene club holds State social significance for at least three groups of people. Firstly, the building holds social significance for the Aboriginal People for its role in the 1938 "Day of Mourning" meeting. This event was the first protest by Aboriginal people for equal opportunities within Australian Society. It was attended by approximately 100 people of Aboriginal Blood and was the beginning of the contemporary Aboriginal Political Movement.
