  • great place to see history come alive. I think their lightshow is much better than the celebrated sovereign hill one  more »

  • Flagstaff Hill does an excellent job of reminding you why the area was once the Shipwreck Coast and how the people in the 1800s depended on their ports and the lighthouses to settle the region. Starti...  more »

  • This experience was breathtaking and priceless. Worth every penny and all the time we spent to come From Mount Gambier. The maritime museum is a real step back in history, and having the oddball touch with the dogs on premises makes it even more real and an even better experience for all. The sound and light show is incredible never experienced or have seen a sight quite like what we experienced it captures the struggles and boat journey all would have faced in the dreadful shipwreck coast, the backdrop as having the maritime setting as part of the show with the water effects and everything just everything made this incredible!!! A truly remarkable experience for all and must see and must do just leave plenty of time to do it so you can get the whole experience and enjoy it. Visited January 2017
  • Buy tickets online if you want to save. Also if you have tiddlers like me you can see a bit of the village then go to Pertobe playground then go back - lots to read so my 3 year old got a bit bored but loved feeding ducks with the food provided and seeing maremar dogs. Laser show kept 6yo and 3yo old amused :-)
  • There's nothing much to see. Was enthusiastic to see if can sieve any tiny gold flakes but disappointed.
  • A step back in history that is very well maintained and offers an insight into our history. If you are heading to the Great Ocean Road via Warrnambool be sure to take a few hours to have a wander through thus wonderful piece of history.
  • Had a preview of the 'new' light and sound show. Very disappointed.
