We are proposing important upgrades and investment in our Sydney research facilities as part of the Sydney Consolidation Project which will include a significant refresh at CSIRO’s Lindfield site.

Thank you to all those who attended our community information sessions and provided feedback during the recent consultation.  If you missed these opportunities please note that we are still happy to receive and consider your feedback.

What’s happening at CSIRO in Sydney?

We are excited to be advancing our science capabilities in Sydney.  The Sydney Consolidation Project will help us to improve the quality of our research facilities and deliver our science more effectively.

Lindfield is currently our largest research site in Sydney and the venue for the planned refresh. The Lindfield Refresh will allow us to accommodate more top scientific researchers as the underutilised CSIRO site at North Ryde is vacated at the end of lease.

CSIRO has also entered discussions with the NSW Government regarding an opportunity for CSIRO to have a strong future presence in the heart of the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, in the CBD of the new Western Parkland City, from 2026. Find out more in the CSIRO news release.


How can I provide feedback?
