I had a couple of hours to kill so went to the museum and was very impressed with the Cyclone Tracey exhibit. Great social history recordings and really got a feel for what the city had been through

Worth a visit. I think the cyclone stuff was the best. They had a lot of aboriginal art if it is your thing.

“Interesting for all ages”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Kids loved this, we loved it...the cafe was just a bonus on already a lovely and informative family outing. The telstra indiginous exhibition is on right now on the top floor, not to be missed. also Make sure you take a stroll down to the boat ramp and beach..
