Waters of Waterloo tour

For the first time in almost a century, a glimpse inside the mysterious Waterloo Pumping Station and Pressure Tunnel

Supported by the City of Sydney

Uncover some of the fascinating story of this site in Waterloo on a tour led by Sydney Water heritage advisor Phillip Bennett, together with artists Heidi Axelsen and Hugo Moline, and Waterloo local Uncle Allan Madden.

Bordered by Bourke, McEvoy and Young streets, a large part of this site is an open, weedy, concrete field with a couple of buildings that help pump water across vast distances.

This is Gadigal land. It was once a wetland bordering sand dunes. Later it housed a huge workshop where people worked and made many things, It has been many other things that we know nothing about.

For the first time in almost a century, a glimpse inside this mysterious site will be made possible.
