This is a unique and thoroughly enjoyably event. Don't miss it! It will be the best $20 you spend on holiday entertainment. The two actors will take you with them in a hilarious journey through a piece of local history - with props and songs...More

Little live theatre treat! Great story to make all ages enjoy the history of the area. Lots of audience involvement (but not scary!), and children were captivated. Its a Strahan institution that deserves a full house. Dress warm, but blankets supplied.

This was a live show with lots of audience participation. Everyone who attended had lots of laughs and it is well worth going to and if selected, participate in.

A wonderful follow up to Sarah Island Tour. Although it is not necessary to go to Sarah Island first (via one of the harbour cruises) it is so much more meaningful if you do. Regardless this group of enthusiastic actors are fantastic and the performance...More

It is just on the wharf in Strahan. In front of where the red boat leaves. You should not need to book. It was busy, but plenty of seating. You can book where you book cruises and train.
