The venue is a fantastic space for installation pieces. Open and airy with natural lighting, also the lack of white walls makes it feel more accessible than traditional galleries. The Nick Cave show Until was a major draw card for me. I was not disappointed....More

The Tea Festival Carriageworks was incredible! So much to see and try with beautifully displayed stores and lots of unique teas. This will be a must see place for whatever is next shown. Great day out.

Walking through the door for the opening night of Ryoji Ikeda’s immersive installation, MICRO | MACRO, we were hit with the earthy, musky aroma of truffles. The source of the aroma was two men, working overtime, grating whole black truffles over two giant boards of...More

Currently showing Daniel Buren's oversized children's woodblocks and Ryoji Ikeda's projection works. Ikeda's work is superb and the viewer can become part of the work. Carriageworks is a short walk from Redfern Station and is a fantastic industrial style space. A must see when in...More

A good home for contemporary art and thinking exhibitions, you come away with an intellectual curiosity, The shows are never "normal" or mainstream, always involve you in thinking and asking questions.

I visited one of the artists in the newly established art studios. The signage is quite confusing. It is easy to get there if you are driving or taking a taxi.

Not sure. It is easier to access it from Redfern Station and public transport.

Having left our planning so late, we were fortuitous that there was a Sydney icons in Lego exhibition at the Sydney Museum and Wynton Marsalis was playing with his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Opera House. Great coincidences..... Bouquets: - the concert with Wynton Marsalis with the JALC and Sydney Symphony Orchestras was amazing - the El Anatsui exhibition at Carriage Works was really spectacular..the venue is great.

Best Markets? (8 Replies)
Arriving in Sydney from the US on a Saturday morning in October. We love markets, both farmers markets (big foodies) and crafts markets. There are so many, and all seem to be weekend only, it's hard to choose! Would appreciate some suggestions since we obviously can't do them all. The ones I've been looking at are Carriageworks, Paddington Markets, Bondi and the Rocks. So far leaning toward Carriageworks as soon as we get in and drop our bags Saturday since it's only open til 1. On Sunday...More

Paddington and the rocks are more upscale than Bondi. Both are similar, but the ricks has the advantage of being down near the opera house and harbour bridge, meaning you can combine it with sightseeing.
