STREET TALK: Hardy Avenue with Sheridan

Hello, it’s Sheridan here from PRDnationwide.

We’re here on Hardy Avenue for another episode of Street Talk. Come and have a look.

Hardy Ave. was named in honour of the Hardy family. Charles Hardy was born in 1833 in Dorset in South West England, and arrived in Australia in 1854, proceeding to Wagga Wagga approximately 1860. He then set up business as a building contractor.

He built many of the notable buildings locally, including the Council Chambers, ANZ Bank, post office, Bomen Railway Station, Wagga Wagga Railway Station, Gurwood Street School, and residence.

Charles Hardy was, in 1870, appointed the first valuer, and served as mayor for the council in 1902 and 1903. The family’s business pursuits expanded later to embrace Timber Mills, Joinery Works, and Hardware Merchandising.

Hardy Ave. is well known for being a part of the medical precinct, with Calvary Hospital located right in the middle. Hardy Avenue has a mixed use of residential and commercial. The current median rental price is $380 per week, ranging between $300 up to $500 per week.
