Waverley is an eastern suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Waverley is located 7 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of Waverley Council.
Waverley Council takes its name from the suburb but its administrative centre is located in the adjacent suburb of Bondi Junction, which is also a major commercial centre. Waverley is the highest point of altitude in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
Waverley takes its name from a home built near Old South Head Road in 1827, by Barnett Levey (or Levy) (1798-1837). It was named Waverley House, after the title of his favourite book, Waverley, by author Sir Walter Scott. Waverley Municipality was proclaimed in June 1859. The house was a distinctive landmark and gave its name to the surrounding suburb.
Other landmarks include Edina, a late Victorian mansion built on a grand scale in Birrell Street. It was built by Ebenezer Vickery for himself and his family, and completed in about 1884. Vickery was a leading merchant and a most prominent patron of the Methodist Church. Other buildings in the group include Banksia, Witchagil and the Nellie Vickery Memorial Chapel. Banksia and Witchagil are two-storey villas that Vickery built for his sons.
This distinguished group of Victorian buildings is now used as the War Memorial Hospital. Edina, Banksia and Witchagil are on the Register of the National Estate.
Victoria Street is the site of more local landmarks in the form of the Mary Immaculate Church and, on the opposite side, the Jubilee International Church. The former is an example of the Federation Academic Classical style and was designed by John Hennessy in 1912. Its twin-towered design is said to be reminiscent of the Italian Renaissance. The Jubilee International Church was originally the Grahame Memorial Presbyterian Church, Waverley. The foundation stone was laid by Mrs. William Grahame on May 8, 1897. Another landmark in this street was the Catholic Friary, which was demolished in 1985 after sustaining extensive fire damage.
