This place is seriously cool. Well designed to make the most of the old powerhouse. Saw a great show here - live music in a space that really suited the show. Loved it.

We visited the world press photo exhibition and it was nicely arranged and set up. No entrance fee. However, slightly overcrowded when we were there, also due to the restaurants around and some wedding taking place. Nevertheless nice views on the river action possible.

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.

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