A draft management plan for the Eveleigh Locomotive Workshops' machinery collection has been prepared for ATP in conjunction with an audit of our collection, and a revised Heritage and Conservation (s170) Register. Click here to learn more.
The NSW Minister for Heritage recently granted ATP site-specific exemptions from approvals required under section 57 (1) of the Heritage Act 1977. Click here to read more in NSW Government Gazette No. 22 - Government Notices.
ATP runs heritage tours for corporate companies, community organisations and anyone interested in the history of the site. Tours run for groups of 10 or more. Tours include a first-hand insight in to the area as a working railyard and a live Blacksmith Workshop demonstration by Eveleigh Works.

The Australian Technology Park in Redfern, home to the most significant collection of Victorian blacksmithing machinery in the world, currently houses Eveleigh Works.
Eveleigh Works is a blacksmithing school dedicated to teaching traditional and contemporary blacksmithing techniques to the community. Their courses are open to the public with a focus on hand forging techniques, metal sculpture, knife-making and tool-making.
2017 will mark 130 years of blacksmithing on the site. Mirvac, acting as caretakers and in collaboration with Eveleigh Works will ensure the maintenance and protection of the rare heritage machinery collection for the future.
