Adding to the tour is a beautifully designed college built in Romanesque Revival Style which features carvings of Australian animals and flowers in the facade. 

Discover and hear about the 6 Green Star rated sustainability building which has a ''Doppler Effect'' facade and one of the first of its' kind in Australia. So much to see and hear about, finishing along the Goods Line which was transformed from a disused freight railway line.
