A mini Myer Music Bowl, new and purpose-built, The Basin Pavilion in the beautiful Basin Triangle Park, has a large playground and lawn area, and is surrounded by neighbourhood shops, including cafés, restaurants, take-away, and pubs. Forests, mountains and music to feed the soul, what more do you need.
