The A to Z of 2205: Done St

Done St runs between Wollongong Rd and Firth St. It was named in memory of Rev. John Done, Anglican rector of the Parish of St George in the 1870s. (The Origins of Street Names in the Municipality of Rockdale, compiled by Alderman Ron Rathbone, 1990)

Done St was also the route of the Ancliffe-Bexley steam tram - notice the subtle superelevation at each end of the street.
