The old Naval Newington dump is a good day out with plenty of activities. The art gallery was closed on the day but the site is open every day free to the public. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the walk.

Great day out. Caught the train around the armory. Also went on a bike ride. The place also has segways. They seem interesting. Had lunch at the cafe by the river. Just an all round good day with the family.

Excellent breakfast menu on a Sunday. Expensive for type of food served. Ordered the huevos ranchos which was delicious but slightly undercooked. Not on the menu but they do a nice thickshake though.
