The Coal Loader

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.
