Towards an Eveleigh Heritage & Tourism Strategy

To make the most of the heritage and tourism potential of the site there is a need for Government, Heritage Interests, businesses and residents to develop a comprehensive plan for the Eveleigh site. After reviewing the RWA's heritage strategy heritage interests, local businesses and residents called on the Minister for Redfern Waterloo to establish a committee / round table of government bodies and interested parties to develop a Heritage and Tourism Strategy for Eveleigh. Here you will find information relating to this strategy, starting with the RWA's current two page proposal.
RWA Heritage Interpretation Strategy
This is the sum total of the RWA Heritage interpretation Strategy for the Former Eveleigh Railyards as at October 2008. While the HIS was prepared as part of the North Eveleigh preferred Project Proposal it indicates the RWA is considering a wider heritage strategy across the site. The Eveleigh Heritage Meeting of 28 October 2008 called for the formation of a task force / committee of government and non government heritage bodies to develop a comprehensive Heritage Tourism and Interpretation Strategy for Eveleigh. It was widely agreed that the current RWA document was inadequate.
3rd International Railway Heritage Conference and NSW Tour for delegates – November 2009
This is an Open Letter to Organisations and Individuals with an Interest in NSW Railway Heritage. It raises the obvious question of why a Tour of Eveleigh is not on the agenda for a tour of delegates. While this is Railway Heritage Conference there are many people passing through Sydney that have an interest in heritage railways that would visit Eveleigh if there was a tourist package. Japan is one country that has a large number of people with heritage rail interests.
