In the days of the Abattoir
Visit the Abattoir Heritage Precinct for a special twilight viewing! Finish your tour at the mesmerizing photo display projected on the Pullman Hotel to celebrate Australian Heritage Festival.
The State Abattoir at Homebush 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.
Meeting Location: Sydney Olympic Park Train Station (Stadium Side), Corner of Showground Road and Dawn Fraser Ave (opposite the Heritage Precinct)
