  • Very well organised and full information about the sinking given.
  • There was a lot of history in the place and it was just gorgeous everywhere you looked.
  • Museum was shut but the memorial garden was really nice. Loved the story board of what happened. Will definitely come back when the museum is open!
  • Good for a stop on a drive through the area. Cheap entry, very interesting museum and amazing views. We were provided with a free pair of binoculars when visiting and could watch for whales and other animals. Recommend a visit if you're in the area.
  • It's a nice place to go with a lot of money spent on it recently and there's picnic area's for families to enjoy.
