The Blue Bird Cafe is located on the banks of Lake Bonney. The cafe is actually a refurbished boatshed. According to signage on the site, the building was originally known as 'Reg and Gertie Bishop's Boatshed' and garaged the jet-powered hydroplane David Campbell was planning to use to attempt to break the world water record speed.

On 23 November 1964, Campbell succeeded in setting a new Australian world water speed record in his vessel known as 'Bluebird K7". Unfortunately, weather conditions never allowed him to set a new world record.
