The Epic New Tramsheds Harold Park Opens This Week

Here’s everything we know.

It's the epic new development Sydneysiders have been waiting for — and, after what seems like an age, it's about to become a reality. That'd be Tramsheds Harold Park, aka the massive revamp of the heritage-listed Rozelle Tram Depot. Whether you're hungry, thirsty or just like strolling around a European-inspired market hall lined with bespoke retailers, you'll be able to get your food fix when it finally opens its doors to the public on September 22.

So, what do we know about Tramsheds? Quite a lot, it appears. News about fresh additions and tenants has been coming in thick and fast over the past few months, making many a stomach rumble.

Ice cream fiends, rejoice: a new Gelato Messina will be setting up shop as part of the precinct. Poultry fiends, get just as excited: Belle's Hot Chicken will be serving up the wings, tenders and dark meat you can't get enough of, too.


They'll be joined by a list that only seems to get bigger by the week, including deli/butcher/restaurant combo Butcher and The Farmer; sustainable seafood restaurant Fish and Co; tapas joint Bodega 1904; and Flour Eggs Water, a new establishment run by Eugenio Maiale. Boutique coffee venue Garçon will bring a theatrical style of coffee-making to the development, while Middle Eastern eatery Bekya will introduce Egyptian street food to Tramsheds' diners. The big end of town is covered as well, thanks to a family-owned 2440 square metre IGA Supamart supermarket.

Don't got thinking Tramsheds is just about all things edible, though. For starters, the folks behind Surry Hills whiskey den Tokyo Bird promise to blend seafood-focused Japanese cuisine with a great drinks menu at Osaka Trading Co. And then there's Redline Kitchen & Taphouse, which will not only serve up Southern-style American eats, but also boast locally brewed craft beer.

There's also a medical centre, gym, hairdresser and nail bar planned too, and a number of cycle paths are currently under renovation — with plans for over 80 bike racks to be installed. Sounds like Tramsheds will be positively bursting. With all of that on offer, you know where to find us from Thursday.

Visit Tramsheds Harold Park at 1 Dalgal Way, Forest Lodge from September 22. For more information head to
