The permanent exhibition, detailing the geology, Florian and fauna of the area is outstanding, as is the building itself and the central cafe and gift shop. The changing exhibition was interesting and thought provoking (it was about WW1 and WW2 when we were there) and I’d be interested to see other exhibitions. Admission was only $3 each so tremendous value for money and a great way to spend a couple of hours.

A great place to take the kids when its raining outside. More suited to younger kids . Combined with a trip to the cafe and a visit to the library we enjoyed filling a cold wet rainy day

We stopped for lunch while at the centre. We ordered mushroom and fetta salad for 17 dollars each. What we received was a pile of lettuce with a few bits of mushroom and a sprinkle of fetta. Disgraceful. Why rip people off?
