TradeCoast Central Heritage Park Interpretive Centre is at the heart of three heritage sites here at the location of Brisbane’s former Eagle Farm Airport at 87 Schneider Road Eagle Farm. The Interpretive Centre is open from 10am to 4pm weekdays. Entry is free. Parking is available via Backhouse Place, at the southern end of the park, and Amy Johnson Place, at the northern end.

The Heritage Park also features walking trails and outdoor interpretive displays for the heritage-listed convict era Women’s Prison and Factory Site, the World War Two Allison Engine Testing Stands and Hangar 7, the igloo-shaped building to the south west of the park where diligent intelligence work on Japanese aircraft cracked the secrets of the Zero fighter plane, giving the Allies ascendancy in the air over the Pacific.
