  • Tearooms weren't open. Museum is a bit hard to get into, needs some more signposting. Lots of memorabilia and photos. Could do with some decluttering. Disappointed we couldn't look inside the actual Ghan carriages. Mini train ride was fun. Staffed entirely by volunteers and they need help to make this into a top attraction.
  • Lovely tea rooms didn't end up going to the Ghana museum as we had no time. 15$ each per person. And no student discount :(
