Hart's Mill Precinct

"The Hart’s Mill complex is a group of buildings on the Port Adelaide waterfront that includes Hart’s Mill, the Adelaide Milling and Mercantile Company flour mill, and associated outbuildings and other structures. Together, they constitute South Australia’s longest continually operating flour production facility, one that spanned a 125-year period between 1855 and 1980. The Adelaide Milling and Mercantile Company mill is currently the tallest building in Port Adelaide, and Australia’s tallest building with internal timber-framed architecture. Virtually derelict for approximately three decades, the complex of structures has in recent years been targeted for demolition and/or re-development, but has also become a venue for artistic expression and a rallying point for heritage protection and community action in the Port."

In 2014, Renewal SA completed a face-lift of the Adelaide Milling Company building on Mundy St,  which was part-funded by the Port Adelaide Enfield Council. The area surrounding the milling complex has been landscaped with seating, lawn, trees and an undercover barbecue area. A parking area has been bitumenised and a playground has been established. The large shed has been repaired and is able to accommodate markets, art exhibitions and performances. Outdoor films are shown through the Summer months.

Cafe Folklore is in a top spot in the annex over the Port River.
Wonderwalls, Illuminart and Laneway Festivals have enhanced this precinct to the delight of the locals and visitors from other areas. It's great to show-off this historic icon.
