A very good display of photos and artifacts in this replica hut. We were lucky enough to have a guide that has actually worked down there and could tell us what day to day life was like.

Very interesting and educational. Could have spent more than the two hours reading and listening to the staff and their stories. Extremely brave group of men, almost boys, who ventured out into the unknown, very moving in parts.

What an amazing place to visit and learn. We had no knowledge of the bravery and tragedy of this part of Australian History, an era which should be taught in Australian schools. Take your time here. It took us almost an hour to read our...More
