Newington Armory

Step back into the past at Newington Armory, Sydney Olympic Park, a place steeped in local history. Newington Armory has evolved from its military-industrial origins where you will find bunkers from the war, to now a unique space with activities for all.

To get a full feel take the Heritage Railway Discovery Tour or ride the rails that was once used to move missiles and torpedoes around the Armament Depot. Or test your balance with a Segway ride. Got some free time and kids with you? Hit up Blaxland Park one of Sydney’s best outdoor free parks.
