Next to the Botanic Gardens is The Tanks Arts Centre. These were WWII fuel tanks which have been cleverly converted and now form a fantastic space for exhibitions and concerts. The Tanks are shaded by huge raintrees and the entrance wall to the centre is decorated by the roots of a giant strangler fig. Check the website for exhibitions, concerts, market days and other activities.

Behind The Tanks is the Mt Whitfield Conservation Park. The 1.3km/1hr Red Arrow circuit and 5.4km/4hr Blue Arrow circuit are well marked walks over the range with great views of Trinity Bay and the city.
