Machine Workshop Outdoor Area

The Machine Workshop Outdoor Area adjoins the Machine Workshop space and can be used for various activities.


The Machine Workshop Outdoor Area is a paved semi-covered area approximately 10m x 7m. This space has workbenches and can be used for timber and metal projects. Due to its proximity to the Machine Workshop you will have access to the power tools from the workshop plus easy access to the machinery if your build requires modification.

The paved area outside the Machine workshop has a small amount of protection, so rain, wind and dust, may affect your working area and work pieces.


The Machine Workshop Outdoor Area can be accessed via the Machine Workshop.

To gain access to the Machine Workshop, complete the appropriate Levels of Induction (Level 00, 01 and 02) and you will gain access to the space during the Machine Workshop opening hours: 1:00pm - 5:00pm.
