Filled with maritime history, relics and artefacts the museum has indoor and outdoor displays, including an operating slipway, historic vessels and a blacksmith shop. Next, take a look at the local marina, home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in Australia. Then, your off on a “Seafood Lovers” guided tour of a multi fish species processing factory.
