Originally constructed as a guardhouse, with a small yard and earth closet, the area had been altered progressively. The place formerly accommodated the Superintendent’s Office and the Contact Visitors area.
Over a period of four years and in two stages, the Gift Shop was developed. The project comprised of the removal of partition work, amalgamation of spaces, revealing of historic layers, conservation works, and a interior shop fit out. New services were integrated and a small range of interpretive work undertaken.
