The Coal Loader

The World Health Organisation has declared the COVID-19 virus a pandemic that risks the health, safety and wellbeing of the most vulnerable people in our community. We take this risk very seriously, so the National Trust has cancelled or postponed all events until 30 June 2020. This event is cancelled.
For all ticketed events, refunds will apply.

Learn the fascinating history of this ex-industrial site and how it has been transformed into a Centre for Sustainability.

Join the National Trust’s tour committee for a guided tour of the newly built Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability which opened mid 2011. A former industrial site with an interesting history, it operated for over 70 years from the early 1920s, primarily as a transfer depot for coal from bulk carriers. Dedicated as public open space in 1997 and transferred to North Sydney Council in 2003, The Coal Loader now features a sustainability retrofitted cottage, wetlands, community gardens, a native bushland nursery, historical tunnels, Aboriginal engravings, the platform green roof, regenerated parklands and a beautiful bushland reserve next door, together with a cafe where we will have morning tea after the tour.
