Carriageworks is the largest and most significant contemporary multi-arts centre of its kind in Australia.  Carriageworks engages artists and audiences with contemporary ideas and issues. The program is artist led and emerges from Carriageworks’ commitment to reflecting social and cultural diversity. The Carriageworks artistic program is ambitious, risk taking and unrelenting in its support of artists. 

Carriageworks is open 10am - 6pm daily and open until late on performance nights. For more information view Carriageworks Artistic Program



Carriageworks is housed in the old Eveleigh Rail Yards at Wilson Street, located within the emerging Redfern Waterloo precinct, and has been developed by the NSW State Government through Arts NSW. The distinctive nineteenth century industrial atmosphere of the former railway carriage and blacksmith workshops have been retained, with many heritage iron and brick details featured in the regeneration of the building.



Adding to the rich cultural atmosphere at Carriageworks are a number of Resident Organisations, all working within the contemporary arts sector: Erth, Force Majeure, Performance Space, Sydney Chamber Opera, Moogahlin, Felix Media, Stalker and Marrugeku.
