YouTube – The Official Re-naming Of "The Hungry Mile"

YouTube – The Official Re-naming Of "The Hungry Mile"

The Hungry Mile has been formally re-named as an official urban space in Sydney to ensure its link to history lasts forever.
The name became an official part of Sydney in a joint ceremony held today with Premier Nathan Rees, Lord Mayor Clover Moore, Lands Minister Tony Kelly and The Maritime Union of Australia Secretary Paddy Crumlin.
The Maritime Union approached the City of Sydney to apply the name The Hungry Mile to the precinct and have it recognised as an official place name within the suburb of Barangaroo at East Darling Harbour by the Geographical Names Board.
Premier Rees thanked the Council for making the application to officially rename the Sydney wharves precinct which will serve as a permanent reminder of the area’s unique heritage.
