1 Merriman St
Barangaroo NSW 2000

A unique cultural venue, the Cutaway is an expansive, below-ground concrete space offering flexibility for a range of large-scale events. The super-sized concrete void is Sydney’s newest and most unique cultural venue. Located a step away from the CBD at Barangaroo Reserve, it can be transformed in a variety of innovative ways to host your next event.

Hidden away beneath the artificial hill that is now home to Sydney’s new native botanic garden, the Cutaway is a fundamental part of the city’s remarkable re-created north western headland.

Raw and imposing, the Cutaway offers pedestrian access from the south and a 300 space underground car park.

The Cutaway is a large internal space, intended as a venue for cultural and public events. It is wheelchair accessible and houses the lift and amenities, including accessible toilets.

It is recommended that guests attending events in The Cutaway requiring additional sensory considerations please call 1300 966 480 or for more information.

In addition to the amenities within The Cutaway, other toilet facilities, including two ambulant and one accessible cubicle, are located near the Towns Place entrance.

Getting There
Wynyard and Circular Quay are both approximately 1.1km. Travel via Wynyard is a little quicker, and involves using Wynyard Walk tunnel. The tunnel exits at Napoleon Plaza, which connects to the lift at Sussex Street Bridge.

You can reach Hickson Road via the lift. Tactile Ground Surface Indicators and curb ramps are consistent from both locations. Shore lining from Circular Quay is more consistent than from Wynyard for white cane users.

The closest bus stops are in Hickson Road, close to Towns Place, and are serviced by routes 324 and 325, which depart from Town Hall; and route 311, which runs between Central Station and Argyle Street. Wheelchair users accessing the park from the Towns Place entrance should be aware there is a 30m-long brick/cobbled pathway to navigate before the surface becomes completely smooth.

There are two accessible street parking bays on Towns Place, close to the entry to the carpark. Care Park operate a car park beneath the Reserve, accessed via Towns Place. It provides eight accessible parking spaces on level B1. Please see Care Park website here for more details.

The Hickson Road entrance to Barangaroo Reserve is recommended if arriving by taxi or being dropped off/picked up by private vehicle.
