Tech Central

Australia's largest technology and innovation hub will provide 250,000 square metres of space for technology companies and affordable rates for startups and scaleups.


As the focal point of Sydney's innovation and technology community, Tech Central is a vibrant innovation and technology precinct in the heart of Sydney's CBD, with strong links to international markets, Greater Sydney, and the rest of NSW.

Home to the Sydney Quantum Academy and future Space Industry Hub, Tech Central will future proof and diversify the NSW economy and cement its position as a leader in:

  • fintech, cyber and ehealth
  • digital and deep technology including quantum, blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics, internet of things and analytics
  • creative industries including virtual reality and game design.


Tech Central will provide up to 250,000 square metres of space for technology companies, including 50,000 square metres at affordable rates for startups and scaleups, in a connected location brimming with heritage, culture and activity. The precinct is clustered around three core nodes of science, technology and entrepreneurship:   

  • Camperdown is a major node of biomedical innovation. 
  • Eveleigh leads a thriving ecosystem of deep tech innovation spanning Quantum, AI, Cyber & Robotics.  
  • Haymarket and its surrounding neighbourhoods are buzzing with major digital and creative innovators.  


A NSW Government funding package of $48.2 million has kick-started development and tech giant Atlassian is confirmed as anchor tenant. It will locate its headquarters in the precinct, bringing over 4000 employees.

Highly-ranked nearby institutions including the University of Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and CSIRO's Data61 are looking to further collaborate with business on joint research, commercialisation and graduate programs.
