Was expecting a pokey little local museum but was amazed by the size of the collection. The Lady Denman brought back memories of trips to the zoo. Our son was kept happy and busy doing the treasure hunt. The temporary exhibitions were a welcome bonus.

Hidden jewel of Huskisson. Make sure you have a couple of hours to spend here. Great collection of maritime memorabilia. The Lady Denman Ferry has been restored and is housed here. It's fabulous.
