  • Nice for a morning/afternoon outting. Kids will love the displays as will the parents. Very cheap entry too.
  • Thank you Bill, the most informative tour guide ever. So much first hand knowledge and anecdotes from his 47 years of experience. One of the best ways to spend a couple of hours when in Rockhampton
  • Closed and under renovation. Wish we knew that beforehand. Looks like it will be beautiful.
