Tech Central brings together six neighbourhoods in Sydney which are already home to some of Australia's most exciting startups and innovative institutions.

The vision

By 2023, the NSW Government will have catalysed this innovation ecosystem - Tech Central – connecting organisations to create a globally renowned community that pulses with inspiration and draws top tech talent from across the world to do their best work.

A place
for all

Tech Central is already home to free thinkers, creative spirits and problem solvers who challenge convention. It embodies innovation – social, cultural, intellectual and economic. Diverse and inclusive communities are core to Tech Central’s strength, identity and ethos.

With the NSW Government providing affordable spaces to researchers, innovators, startups and entrepreneurs to incubate, test and scale their ideas – and with the sector anchored by Atlassian’s future Australian HQ – Tech Central will become the recognised home of industries breaking new ground.

At the heart of it all

Tech Central unites six vibrant neighbourhoods:

Surry Hills




South Eveleigh

Darlington North Eveleigh

Anchored by the best-connected transport interchange in the country, Tech Central’s unique geographic footprint allows the resources and ingenuity of universities, hospitals, startups, scaleups, research institutes and globally-successful firms to collide.
