Worthwhile taking young kids during school holidays - train around the artillery grounds is informative and educational. Nice cafe by the riverside. Huge recreational area, street parking. BBQ area - non reservable. Watch birdlife and the rivercat go by.

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.

A great and unexpected pleasure. We'll presented 90 minute ride through the large park like area. The train stops inside one of the store rooms filled with torpedoes and other munitions.
