My mum and I came for a walk with my toddler. We decided to pop in for lunch with a view. Overall we had a nice time. We had steak sandwiches and beer, service was good too.

Just visited to see the building and didn’t enter any happening. Nice old industrial building taken to other use but without any other action to visit, nothing much to see.

Visited this place for the first time during the school holidays with my daughter and grandchildren. I was amazed at the number of educational and fun things for them to do. We really needed 2 days to be able to cover everything.

Parking is on site but very limited. You are better off parking near New Farm Park and get early to enjoy the pleasant walk
