Today the venue is managed by a passionate team committed to making a positive impact on the world. They have transformed rusting industrial buildings into award-winning event spaces, regenerated the natural landscape and curated expansive organic kitchen gardens. Spring Bay Mill offers diverse onsite accommodation options and serves garden-to-plate goodness, all with the goal of revitalising this once destructive site through the restorative powers of nature.
