Audio visual and interactive displays throughout the Museum. Endlessly fascinating and absorbing, no matter what age group. Recently awarded the 2016 Trip Advisor Travelers Choice Award and listed among the top 10 museums in Australia, the Museum really is worth a visit. Nui Dat Cafe open daily for light refreshments.
