Built between 1880 and 1889, this intriguing group of huge Victorian-era workshops was part of the Eveleigh Railyards. The rail workers chugged out in 1988, and in 2007 the artists moved in. It's now home to various avant-garde arts and performance projects, and there's usually something interesting to check out; have a look on the website to see what's on. There's a very pleasant cafe-bar here and an excellent Saturday morning farmers market.
