This is a great little Museum. There is also a wonderful boardwalk over the mangroves which is very interesting as well as a lovely walk in the sun. Wooden boat restoration on site is also fascinating

Lots of information on the local area and it's maritime history. Full sized old Sydney Ferry on show. There was also an interesting art exhibition on when we were there. Well worth a visit.
