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.

Small local museum. Well laid out and interesting. Includes not only killer whale information, but also WWI, WWII memorabilia and the local community. Worth the visit to learn about the local area.

There is not much else to see here but shops and restaurants but this museum is well worth a visit. The video sound could do with a bit of tweaking though.

Response from Robert S | Property representative |
