I was disgusted by this joke of a museum. It's clear that Vic Hislop has a personal vendetta against large sharks and he seems to neglect that sharks have been eating other marine animals for millions of years being the apex predator of our oceans. This is simply just nature, should we go around killing all lions, bears and tigers... More

The display was very old, mainly newspaper clippings supporting Vic Hislop's view that sharks should be killed. The sharks in the freezer were very hard to see. The whole display is very tired and biased towards one point of view. We would not recommend this show.

This is a very educational show if all the other idiots took the time to read and watch the show they would have learnt it just not about the humans they kill it's all the other wild life they kill as well, sharks can have 50 baby's at a time and each one can eat a dolphin a week or... More

Entering there with the attitude " I will be outta here within the half hour." I was surprised to find that I had actually spent 3 hours reading information and viewing the videos. Only an illiterate would find it boring.

Please do not visit, place is described as an educational centre of shark life and is instead a anti shark propoganda pile of nonsence all aimed at legalising the hunting and killing of great white sharks based on lies and NO scientific evidence. It is a shame that this is tolerated in Hervey Bay as after speaking to a lot... More

I visited with my 2 children and within a minute we realised what a waste of money this 'show' was! What a con! This man happily murders sharks and is proud of himself! His trophy shark teeth/jaws are on display everywhere. Revolting. Bloody pictures of dead sharks and a smiling (insane looking smile) vic hislop. The displays were tacky and... More

This establishment is disturbing to say the least. Plagued by propaganda and horrific grammatical errors. Worth the $12 if you want a good laugh. There is a section that is supposedly "child proof" full of gory pictures of shark attack victims. Not very child proof as young children were running up and looking in. It is essentially a museum to... More

What a rip off. The frozen shark was in a dark foggy freezer, couldn't even see it at all with the one tiny torch that worked. The rest of it was pretty average, don't be fooled don't enter!

We took our son here when he was 4 as he is mad on sharks. Fortunately for him he couldn't read the propaganda that Vic Hislop promotes throughout his "museum". The museum is filled with articles and letters written by Hislop on how sharks are "man eaters" and the oceans should be rid of them. There were a couple of... More
