The hub of a visionary arts and antiques precinct

Loving the antique business, Heather and John Mildwaters looked for a landmark heritage building in which to establish their next antique centre, after their Paddington Antique Centre's partners wished to retire.

In 2009 they found an 1895 Memorial Hall with an adjoining 1957 former church, under-utilized and neglected; they won the tender.  Twelve months' substantial renovation resulted in their purpose-built Antique Centre Complex in the two buildings, the Queensland Heritage-Registered hall and the former church.
