The visitor centre fronts a village green.

In addition to the main 'Kui Visitor Centre', the project contains significant adaptive re-use components, in particular the conversion of the Tanderra Lodge from group accommodation to separate accommodation suites, sensitive refurbishment of the distinctive ‘Barmah’ building and upgrades to the existing Powerhouse building to provide a flexible event space.
