This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Great Strike of 1917. This strike saw 1,100 tramway workers and 3,000 Eveleigh Railway Workshop employees walk off the job - triggering a strike that swept across Australia. Occurring at a tumultuous time in Australia’s history the strike’s impact was felt for years to come.As the heart of the NSW transport system, the Eveleigh Locomotive Workshop set the precedent for important workers’ rights such as the eight-hour day and minimum rates of pay.On Saturday 5th August, the 1917 Great Strike Community Day will commemorate this anniversary across the former Eveleigh Railway Workshops. You can learn more about the Eveleigh Railway Workshops on the website www.eveleighstories.com.auMusic, art, heritage, stories, entertainment, food and more, will come together to mark this historic event. We will also be celebrating the 130th Anniversary of Blacksmithing at ATP with live Blacksmithing demonstrations throughout the day. If you would like to take part in a Heritage Tour of ATP, please register to either the 11am or 1:30pm tours at email@example.com. This Community Day is a free event running from 10am to 3:30pm. We would love to see you there!
Australian Technology Park (ATP) is set to become one of Australia’s leading smart neighbourhoods. The vibrant and renewed precinct is set to become a popular destination, not just for workers but for the wider community. From al fresco diners and pop up events to other proposed amenities, which could include a gym and supermarket, the streets and laneways will buzz with activity, attracting visitors from across town and catering to the needs of today’s modern, flexible workforce.
Surrounded by some of Sydney’s most established and thriving neighbourhoods, including Erskineville Village, Redfern, Alexandria and Eveleigh, ATP is an easy stroll to a diverse array of shops, cafes, bars, restaurants – everything we love about these popular suburbs.
