  • Kids loved this place. The guider was very patient and knowledgeable. Recommend for family with primary school aged children.
  • Honestly wasn't expecting much when we went in but were blown away by the friendliness of the staff and their excitement to share the story of Bass and Flinders with us. There's a full sized replica of the Norfolk ship inside (You have no idea looking on the outside of the centre) which you can go in and explore and a few other things to look at. I highly recommend going to the Bass and Flinders centre if you're up in George Town, it was a favorite of mine on the trip and I'd go back again.
  • Beautiful friendly staff. Great coffee and the chocolate cake yum.....
  • Fabulous. Replicas of the Norfolk and Tom Thumb. Wooden boat museum.
  • A fun little museum.
