Venue for Healthivate 2013 Bloggers Conference

The Dining Room
Australian Technology Park
2 Locomotive Street
Eveleigh NSW 2015

The Venue

We are excited that we will be one of the first to use the Australian Technology Park Sydney Limited (ATPSL) just launched new heritage event space.

The venue will allow attendees to experience a bygone era – where trains were run by steam and machinery made by hand – in the industrial setting of Australian Technology Park’s (ATP) Blacksmith Workshop. And yes we will be doing something rather special with the space to highlight a health theme – so bring your iPhones for pics!

There will also be an opportunity to visit the Eveleigh Markets on the Saturday for some fresh produce.


The Dining Room can be found near the purple Bays marked on the Map below.

History of The Blacksmith’s Workshop

From 1886 until the 1980s, when the Park was still the Eveleigh Railway Yards and one of the Australia’s largest industrial complexes, the Blacksmith Workshop produced equipment and tools for the building of steam locomotives in other parts of the site.

Located in Bays 1 & 2 of the Park’s Locomotive Workshop building the space was restored and reopened by ATPSL. It has been kept predominately in its original state and is easily accessible to the public with areas reclaimed for events.

The restoration has seen the addition of a walk way through the Bays that allows patrons to pass through the area.  A glass balustrade has also been added to increase the visibility into the space, and an extensive lighting system that spot lights specific tools and equipment has been put in place.
