“The Glassworks are a studio and gallery dedicated to the art of glassmaking. As Australia’s only cultural centre dedicated singularly to modern glass art, it’s a hub for glass artists, art lovers and visitors looking for special souvenirs. Workshops are available to give the general public a taste of glassmaking, with both one-on-one sessions with professional glass artists and group sessions on offer. Tours are also available, so that as well as enjoying the beauty of the glass art, you can learn in-depth about the meaning of the works, the stories of the artists and the amazing creative inspiration happening at the facility.”

Turkish Restaurant
$$$
“The Barton Turkish restaurant shirks the trend to be loud and brash and keeps things genteel and focussed, letting the chef Serif Kaya's food speak loudly and clearly for itself. Meals are pure and unadorned classics, with bright and strong flavours and a focus on fresh and seasonal produce. While in some restaurants, longevity can lead to a gradual diminishing in relevance, Ottoman remains elegant and idiosyncratic.”
