A place to create, learn and relax.

The centre includes public amenities, the Compass Café, exhibition room, workshop area and staff office.

Opened in 2011, the building features solar, natural ventilation and rainwater harvesting.  The building compliments its botanical setting with beautiful, native landscaping with banksia and kurrajong flowers, a sub-tropical pond, hanging epiphytes and Japanese 'earth' garden.  For more information download this document (PDF, 2960KB).
