Event description
Behind the Scenes of Newington Armory - Armory Restricted

About this event

This tour builds on the Newington 1897 tour by extending the story of Newington Armory from 1921 when the site became a Navy establishment, to the end of its working life in 1999. You’ll enter restricted areas - places normally off limits to the general public only made accessible on a guided tour. Enter the workspaces and laboratories where dangerous materials were handled, learn about the technology and safety procedures employed to keep workers safe, and visit the stunning museum in Building 39.

The natural environment is also integral to the Newington story. On this tour you’ll visit the Narrawang Wetlands to see how the land has been rehabilitated while also marvelling at the remnant Sydney Turpentine Ironbark trees in the Newington Nature Reserve.

The Behind the Scenes series is a set of tours run by Sydney Olympic Park delivered by qualified guides, subject experts and special guests. With more than 20 years having passed since the Sydney 2000 Olympics and Paralympics, the precinct is now a vibrant community with more reasons than ever to come and visit – Sydney Olympic Park: one park, many experiences.

The Behind the Scenes series will take you on a deep dive into the industrial and cultural heritage of the site, give an understanding of ecological and environmental considerations, and allow you to discover some of the stories and hidden layers that go beyond our sporting and entertainment venues. Locations such as Newington Armory and the Brickpit are reminders of the complex landscapes we manage, conserve and celebrate.
