Broadway - road and Sydney urban locality, historically important because it is one of the first roads built in the colony of New South Wales, in 1794.
Broadway was once home to the flagship building of department store chain Grace Brothers until 1995, operating there for 90 years. It was visited by Queen Elizabeth II during her 1954 visit to Australia. Today this site contains the Broadway Shopping Centre and the Hotel UniLodge Sydney.
Broadway provides a link between the University of Sydney and the University of Technology.
