I have been visiting Huskisson for 10 years on holidays and it was only recently that I paid my money to walk through the Lady Denman Museum. It was a rainy day so I didn't have many options, and I had only ever walked through the lovely grounds of the complex. It was beyond expectation, they have one of the most unique and diverse collection of marine / naval antiques I have ever seen. This is truly a hidden gem and the place has such a lovely history with the acquisition of the ferry, The Lady Denman. Definitely go and check it out, even if you aren't necessarily interested, you will leave interested. Well done to all the friendly volunteer staff who are always there to help and answer any questions.

Liked the attention given to Aboriginal history and rebellion and their pursuit of justice after decades of abuse and mismanagement. Video on HMAS Melbourne collision with Voyager. The whaling and ship articfacts plus the Lady Denman ferry video on board the old girl. Also the jumping Jewfist!
