Due for demolition we had to get in quick to see this little gem. This complex has many sections – halls, woodworking, administration, automotive, sports, detention to name a few. Not only is this site rich in urban art but on display are some of the original artworks of former inmates – what a wonderful mix! No privacy existed in the large communal showers it seems. Truly a historical site and a must see before it goes.

Urban Exploring: The Cat Warehouse
The Cat Warehouse (AKA The Cat Factory) is a big place and you can be easily hemmed in once inside. Very large equipment was either repaired or manufactured here. Looking up toward the ceiling you notice a huge crane on a conveyor belt that can traverse the full length of the building. The exterior walls are painted with some brilliant urban artwork. Spend and hour or two in this place – you won’t be bored.

Urban Exploring: King William Street Tunnels
Located beneath the old Treasury Building on King William Street you can see a piece of Adelaide’s history. It’s an artificial subterranean tunnel supposedly linking the Adelaide GPO, the Treasury Building and the Torrens Building. The brickwork here is amazing. Tours are organized through the National Trust SA.
