The renovations and modernization of this building are fantastic. It incorporates lots within the one precinct. They also attract many and varied artists. We are spoilt for choice.

Great spot for conferences. Been to multiple conferences here over the last 18 months. Parking is good - suggest you get there early thought to secure a spot in the car park. Otherwise street parking is a bit of a hunt

Beautiful what they have done to this old building. Walked around and looked at the art on display and met a wonderful young artist there who was displaying her work, ate outside in the cafe which was very nice. Well worth a visit

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