A century ago, the Eveleigh Railway Workshop was a place of clanging hammers, sooty air and piercing train whistles. Reborn as the Carriageworks cultural precinct in 2007, this historic site is now home to the largest and most significant multi-arts centre in Australia.

Carriageworks presents an ambitious, artist-led program of works year round, encompassing visual arts, theatre, dance, music and immersive performances. It’s the place to experience something different and the resident companies represent Sydney’s diverse mix of communities, cultures and ideas.
It's also famous for one of Sydney’s best farmers markets. Held every Saturday morning, locals flocks for seasonal produce, fresh-cut flowers, artisan delicacies, just-out-of-the-oven pastries and, of course, great coffee.
In 2023, Carriageworks will celebrate Vivid Sydney with a curated music and food program that creates diverse, immersive, and multi-sensory experiences. For six nights, the precinct brings together diverse artists from around the world with theatrical live performance, high concept production, DJs and pop-up bars. On the 16 June, Carriageworks also welcomes back the popular Night Market showcasing over 50 of Sydney's leading restaurants, bars and producers.
How to get there: Carriageworks is just a short walk from Redfern, Macdonaldtown and Newtown train stations. You can also hop on a bus to nearby City Road and there’s plenty of bike parking if you prefer to arrive on two wheels.
