I visited here while on business and had a couple of meetings at the cafe, which served a great coffee with friendly service. The museum was a treat but I won't spoil it, go check it out for yourself 😄

After reading the reviews we decided to call in for a light lunch and coffee. Minuscule light menu and just ok coffee. Shoulda stopped at a cafe in town!

Hi Jan. Plenty of parking in the Centre carpark or out on the road. There will be no problems with you finding a park. There now have toilets in the play/BBQ area - just up from the centre. Cheers 😀
