Sydney Olympic Park, Abattoir Heritage Precinct

This former gatehouse in the Abattoir Heritage Precinct is on the corner of Herb Elliott Avenue and Showground Road, in the western suburb of Sydney Olympic Park. It was designed by Walter Liberty Vernon and built in 1915 in the Federation style. It is now used as a visitor information centre. The Avenue is a contemporary office building across the road built in 2015.
