Get lost in the colours and diversity of the crystals and minerals at the Terrestrial Centre – this small town surprises with a massive collection all organised so neatly and well. Definitely worth checking out if you're in Georgetown or just passing through.

We visited as part of a bus tour of the gulf. Located in a little outback town, the comprehensive collection is world class, and well presented in a modern building next to a nice park. It is well worth the small admission price.

We where in the area last year and a little time to fill with our normally busy schedule so we stumbled across this Geological must do in this part of the world and we where glad we had a look. Highly recommended 10/10
