Statement of significance:

Ruskin Rowe is significant in the evolution and pattern of the history of New South Wales. The street is named after the man that subdivided the area in 1950, Mr Harry Ruskin Rowe, a prominent Sydney Architect. The area represents the most "pure" example of the character of residential developments which were occuring in the Avalon area after WW2. Ruskin Rowe is also scientifically signifiant due to the low density nature of the area and the retention of a wide range of fauna, including koalas, bandicoots and native birds.
Note: There are incomplete details for a number of items listed in NSW. The Heritage Division intends to develop or upgrade statements of significance and other information for these items as resources become available.
