If you're genuinely interested in history, you'll probably enjoy it. It's not the most exciting museum in the world, but it's reasonably presented and has some good detail from a locals' perspective.

I stumbled on this little gem when I was in need of a bathroom stop. The museum isn't that large bit it is packed with lots of very interesting exhibits and is well worth a visit.

Great to see the history of immigration and race relations in Australia. The first floor was great. The second floor was just ok.

feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
