Bidura was built about 1860. Blacket is believed to have lived here while he was designing the Great Hall of the University of Sydney. Bidura served for many years as a residence for the merchant Fred Perks, and has a fine ballroom. Bidura House has a long association with the Community Services Department and until the mid- 1970s was used as a residence for state wards, including many Indigenous children separated from their families. Bidura Children’s Court is situated directly behind Bidura House.
