Australian Federation 1890-1915
Australian Federation buildings are characteristically red brick, tuck pointed (bricks separated and
joined by a line of white mortar) with slate roofs featuring frilled terracotta ridge capping, gargoyles
and false gables. Verandahs incorporate turned timber columns, elaborate timber brackets and finials
often depicting Australian motifs such as the waratah, kangaroos and kookaburras. Bay windows and
leadlight or coloured glass windows are also typical.
