Small museum with fascinating insights into the whaling industry. The relationship between the whales and the indigenous aboriginal people was particularly interesting.

Must see ! The way humans were taught by killer whales to hunt together is amazing . We stayed about 1 1/2 hours then drove to the Davidson whaleing station , lovely spot. Old slab huts were in great condition.

The museum is well laid out and has numerous exhibits. The dialogue boards are very informative. There is a good theatre with a very informative film about "Old Tom"- a local legend.

Response from Robert S | Property representative |
