Don’t miss the striking Dr Chau Chak Wing building illuminated; ‘Frankly, My Dear…’ Designed by legendary American architect Frank Gehry. It is Gehry’s first building in Australia, colloquially known as the crumpled paper bag. 320,000 custom bricks were laid by hand to create unique fluidity of form and texture. The building sits on The Goods Line, another of the area’s engineering wonders – a repurposed train line that’s now an urban walkway and green space and part of the 2022 Vivid Sydney Light Walk.
How to get there: UTS is a short walk from Central Station, where you can catch a train, bus, the light rail from all over Sydney or walk along The Goods Line from Darling Harbour.
