Maori families living in Leichhardt Sydney 1920's.

I know I am looking for a needle in a haystack but....

I am trying to find out information about any Maori people living in Leichhardt, a suburb of Sydney Australia, between the years 1919 - 1922. A relative of mine had 2 children whose father's name is not recorded on their birth certificates. I have recently been told that their father was a Maori man who either lived across the road from her or was a relative of the family who lived there. My relative lived in White St at that time. I am looking for any Maori people who lived in the White St/Moore St vicinity. I don't imagine that there would have been too many of them at that time but I can't see any way of finding out that information.
One of these children in particular looked like he was of Maori descent and I had always wondered about his colouring.
This would solve the family mystery.
Any information would be very much appreciated.
