Took an overseas visitor to learn a little of our past. Where this is situated gives people an insight into past and present living conditions. A small facility which has displays that I found interesting especially the insight from local indigenous people.

The amount of local information blew me away. I wasn't prepared for the professional way it's all been set out either. Fantastic local knowledge.

I was with my 8 year old Grandson and we both had an interesting visit. We were looking at the wonderful displays and enjoying everything for about an hour or so. He loved that this was our history.
