What a fantastic facility for families with children of all ages and amazing events and activities throughout all of the school holidays with most of them free or a small nominal charge.

The library is good, there is an aquarium downstairs with piranhas and upstairs there is a dinosaur, Egyptian mummy and local painting exhibition - all for free. Whats not to like?!
