“Arts Tanks Centre Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We spent most of our time having a look in the Art Tanks. Great displays and the artist in residence was most helpful in sharing information about his work.

We enjoyed the tropical plants etc, but particularly enjoyed the 'rainforest' boardwalk. Take repellent!
