The Armstrong Siddeley Car Club of Australia

Rivendell Flower Display

Saturday, 28th September 2019 8:20am - 3:00pm
The Thomas Walker Estate - Hospital Road, Concord West - on the Parramatta River

The Thomas Walker Estate, also known as Rivendell, is a magnificent former hospital which

overlooks the Parramatta River. Throughout its history the Estate has been a

sanctuary for those on difficult journeys to rest and recuperate.


First opening its doors in the early 1890s, the Thomas Walker Convalescent Hospital provided

care for patients who needed a little extra time to gradually recover from illness or injury. More than

70,000 patients have convalesced at the Hospital, including World War I and II veterans.


The Estate was left in trust to Sydney Local Health District, which has carried on offering care,

support and compassion for people with mental illness to help lead them on a pathway to better

health and wellbeing.


The annual Flower and Garden Show is the only opportunity for the public to visit the Estate.

The event is a fundraiser for Concord Hospital’s Department of Geriatric Medicine and the Ageing

and Alzheimer’s Institute.


Warwick Gordon Smith organises a display of Vintage and collectibles cars to contribute to the success

of the event. Display cars should arrive before 8.30am and are required to stay until at least 3pm.

Contact Warwick Gordon Smith [T: 02 9489 6191, E:] for further details.
