  • 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.
  • I have always been a fan of the adventures of Matthew Flinders and the volunteer staff are informative and very knowledgeable
  • Interesting and educational. A fantastic replica of the boat used by Bass and Flinders which you can go on.
  • Great museum for young and old.
  • Go for it you will love the history
