  • Although interesting. We expected a lot more on Mathew Flinders and more on the pioneering families and establishment civilization of Sth Aust.

  • Great place, interesting and informative. Can spend any amount of time you like in there walking around and listening to the information.
  • What a beautiful location, especially in the heart of spring! The wild flowers are in bloom, the reptiles are warming themselves in the sun and birds dart in and around the outdoor area as you enjoy your tea and delicious scones
