Fabulous information on the whales, K'gari Fraser Island and the coast. Interactive displays for the kids. Travelling roadshow display in the second area (changes regularly) currently a controversial artist creating the opportunity for some interesting dialogue. The sculptures outside are excellent too. Enjoy!
Amazing place for the whole family. The kids lived learning about local sea life and the adults enjoyed the art gallery.
This is a fabulous stop. The WWI exhorting which is currently on is well worth the visit. The permanent dismay of the history of Fraser Island is fabulous.
