Abattoir Heritage Precinct is bounded by Herb Elliott Avenue, Showground Road and Dawn Fraser Avenue, at Sydney Olympic Park, in the western suburb of Homebush Bay. This building was originally the administration block for the State Abattoirs, designed by Walter Liberty Vernon and built in 1915 in the Federation architectural style. The buildings were redeveloped for the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games for use by the Sydney Olympic Park Authority. They are now used for sporting administration offices, visitor information and a café. Maiden Gardens, named after botanist and public servant Joseph Henry Maiden, is a Federation style garden.
