    Glamping is great when you want the experience and not the hassle... The Tropical café offers some great pizzas with a stunning and relaxing view!

    Great place has vending machines but are expensive $4 for cans near the entrance but has $4 600ML powerade which is good but there's another machine with $3 cans annoying but nothing I can do

    If you are in to abandoned urban or industrial buildings, this is the place to go. Expect a 2 to 3 hour walk

    Glamping or camping overnight is easy, and awesome.

    Former industrial heritage turned ghost venue for concerts, exhibitions etc. You can camp here too. You get a ferry.

    Avoiding going near the roosting seagulls, they get pissed off if you get too close!

    If you want to escape the buzz of the city of a spot of camping but only want to travel 15 minutes to get there, then is the spot! Clean & modern facilities and #qualityvistas on the cheap! BYO tent

    It's so beautiful here, you feel like you're miles from the city, and the Ship Shape Challenge keeps the kids active.
