Join us for a guided tour of the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability which opened mid 2011. A former industrial site with an interesting history, it operated for over 70 years from the early 1920s, primarily as a transfer depot for coal from bulk carriers.
Dedicated as public open space in 1997 and transferred to North Sydney Council in 2003, Council has worked with a broad range of stakeholders to transform the site into the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability. The Coal Loader now features a sustainably retrofitted cottage, wetlands, community gardens, a native bushland nursery, historical tunnels, Aboriginal engravings, the platform green roof, regenerated parklands and a beautiful bushland reserve next door.
Tickets include morning tea. Bookings essential.
