Randwick is an old suburb of Sydney located only 3 kilometres from the city centre. It was and remains an ‘edgy’ suburb and has a casual feel about it. The old railway station and the atmosphere of the suburb is evocatively captured in Arthur Stretton’s paining, The Railway Station, Redfern, which is just south of where Central Station is today. Redfern has been gentrified in recent years while still retaining a diverse population, included amongst whom are a significant number of residents with some form of disability. Speaking of the railway station, it’s only recently that long awaited plans for a lift to enable those with disabilities to get to platforms have finally come to fruition. Local resident and mobility scooter user Steve says: “I have always liked living here- Redfern’s always had a great about for it. I use my mobility scooter for everything especially getting to the doctor and chemist and once a week or so I’ll travel down to Surry Hills Village to buy all the basics and of course when the Rabbitohs are playing I’ll go to cheer them on.”
