  • Unique and well worth a visit. Great place for a nice lunch from an extensive menu. Dog friendly with tables and chairs under shade and water for the pooch. And friendly, engaging staff.
  • Great little centre. We really enjoyed the tunnel of time and easily spent over 2 hours here looking at everything including the videos. If you're not the type to really take your time through an information exhibit and read and watch what's available, whipping through in ten minutes, then this probably wouldn't be value for you but our family really enjoyed it as a good start to our flinders holiday.
