  • Artsy and elegant with old world charm. It's hard to believe this precinct was built just recently. Kudos to the historians who made it possible. This is a great spot to ditch the men in the Motorsport Museum and let the girls go looking at gift shops and galleries.
  • Really cute little old town. Pretty views :) great coffee shops!
  • Great restoration of heritage buildings and a good blend of business (cafes and bakery) vs exhibits
  • Quaint and relaxing area with lots of history to look out
  • Lovely area highlighting Cromwells history
