History of Redfern The suburb was named after William Redfern, a surgeon (and regarded as the “father of Australian medicine), who received a grant in 1817 for 100 acres of land in the area. Around this time, the local train station was called Eveleigh but was also renamed as Redfern in honour of William.

Fast forward to the 1960s, a movement (centred on the Aboriginal Australians) was formed and helped improve conditions in Redfern, with the establishment of health clinics, housing cooperatives, a legal aid centre, and food drives.
