Project Overview

The HMS Buffalo replica ship was established at Wigley Reserve, Glenelg in 1982 and was a prominent restaurant and visitor attraction for many years. The restaurant was closed to the public in December 2013 and while plans were later established to revamp the ship, the infrastructure had deteriorated to such a condition that it was no longer financially viable to invest in repairing.

The recent removal of the Buffalo from Wigley Reserve, has created an opportunity for this space to be reinvigorated and repurposed for the community to enjoy.
