Loved the cafe looking over the bay Scones are the best in Australia Listening to the whaling story was upsetting So pleased it’s all stopped Very clever the way the tour is set out and most of the equipment still in place Loved the theatres .. well planned Awesome

A truly impressive museum. The whaling ship is very interesting for children and is completely accessible. We were also lucky that Stewart, a former whaler, volunteered to provide information at the museum.

The historical significance of the whaling center is so thrilling. The complete information of how the whaling activities was unbelievable.
