Seniors Festival: Abattoir Heritage Precinct
As part of the NSW Seniors Festival, Seniors are invited to join the Visitor Programs team on a short guided tour of the Abattoir Heritage Precinct at Sydney Olympic Park on the 13, 18 and 21 April.
The Homebush Abattoir was once one of the largest and most modern in the world.. This precinct originally included slaughterhouses, administration buildings, stables, drafting yards and roadways and today the precinct holds a rich layered history of pastoralism, public infrastructure and land grants. This short tour of the surviving heritage listed administration buildings and beautifully landscaped gardens will take you back in time to imagine the sights, sounds and smells of this precinct at its peak.
This tour is free of charge, but bookings are essential.
Please meet at the exit of the Sydney Olympic Park Train Station, towards Showground Road.
