Eveleigh's Tourism Potential

With its mixture of active heritage in the Blacksmith Shop and the Large ant the retention of many of the former railway buildings and associated manufacturing equipment Eveleigh has great potential as a rail heritage tourism destination. The RWA's Heritage Interpretation Strategy envisages "Use of the Heritage Walk Bridge, the Baggage Carriage and Coffee shop as part of an organised Heritage Walk through the North Eveleigh and ATP sites. This will use audio discs available for hire as well as tours organized by volunteer guides". Here you can find information about Eveleigh's tourism potential.

A number of submissions to the review argued the importance of maintaining the "Large" and Eveleigh as part of NSW's heritage rail infrastructure. Here you can read about some of the ideas presented to the Tourism review about the important role of Eveleigh and rail tourism.
