Situated opposite the Jackaroo ( and highly recommended by Sarena ) A lot of effort has been put in by Vounteers to creat a well and informative look at the local history from the Aboriginals to the present day -- and all their were asking was for a donation !! A must see for anyone passing through Mareeba
