Eveleigh, Engine Shop

The former Eveleigh Railway Yards are part of the Australian Technology Parkin the inner city suburb of Eveleigh. This heritage listed Engine Shop, between Innovation Plaza and Locomotive Street, was built in 1907 as a workshop to construct new locomotive engines. It now houses the National Innovation Centre, an entrepreneurial hub which provides laboratory space where start-up company dreams can become reality.
