Carriageworks

Short description

Originally built in the late 1800’s as part of the Eveleigh Railway Workshops, the Carriageworks site once employed several thousands of people – building and maintaining locomotive engines and carriages for Sydney’s expanding rail network. In 2007, the site was redeveloped as a cultural precinct. Today, Carriageworks is one of Australia’s most renowned and significant contemporary multi-arts organisations.

Carriageworks presents an ambitious program throughout the year encompassing visual arts, theatre, dance, music, and immersive performances. It’s the place to experience something different, and represents Sydney’s diverse mix of communities, culture, and ideas.

Famous for one of Sydney’s best markets, the Carriageworks Farmers Market is held every Saturday morning with locals and visitors flocking to the site for farm-fresh seasonal produce, fresh-cut flowers, artisanal delicacies and great coffee.

Since its inaugural Vivid Sydney presentation in 2012, Carriageworks has been home to wild parties, unique culinary explorations and world-class international and local music acts, including music superstar and fashionista Grace Jones, boundary-pushing musician Björk and Aussie dance music heavyweights Rüfüs Du Sol.

In 2024, Carriageworks will celebrate Vivid Sydney with a curated program of live music and food. Across May and June, the precinct brings together diverse artists from around the world with live performance, high concept production and DJs as well as immersive dining experiences.

How to get there: Carriageworks is a short walk from Redfern, Macdonaldtown and Newtown train stations. You can also hop on a bus to nearby City Road and enjoy proximity to bike lanes, with onsite bike racks if you prefer to arrive on two wheels.
