Newington Armory

Newington Armory, formerly the Royal Australian Naval Armament Depot (RANAD), features over 100 heritage buildings of various ages and types, set amidst a 52 hectare riverside landscape of undulating hills and woodlands.

The heritage buildings provide the Armory with a unique character, which is described through an award-winning heritage interpretation program that can be viewed at the original 1897 gate house.

Newington Armory is Sydneys most exciting arts precinct. Facilities for performing and visual arts and writers have enabled the local community to work side by side with emerging and established artists and international visitors.

Newington Armory is home to numerous annual and special one-off events throughout the year, from the popular ARTEXPRESS Arts Festival, workshops, film screenings, art exhibitions and launches, food and wine events and much more!

Newington Armory has an exceptional artists facility comprising an open plan studio that can accommodate up to 21 artists at a time. The exciting adaptive re-use of this heritage building offers useful working space for painting, sculpture, ceramics and printmaking. A writers studio is also available. The studio space is available for artists for casual hire, long term or even a residency program. You can meet them on one of our regular Meet the Artists tours. Find out more information about the Arts program.
