South Australia Whale Centre Reviews
Nothing was too much for the staff at this amazing center Well done The souvenirs are in abundance and very well priced. more »
Three storey collection which gently enforces the undeniable truth that everyone has a part to play in protecting the giant mammals of the sea. Plenty to see and read, videos to watch and a ‘trip’ wit... more »
The staff here were very friendly, helpful and quick with a joke. Lots of information for all age groups on the history of the whaling industry and more contemporary information about all things maritime. There are 'hands on' displays for a more tactile experience or for younger visitors to experience some of the displays more intimately. The sand pit in the basement would be a lot of fun for the younger generation. There are a few audio visual displays to enjoy and especially the 3D pisplay in the basement theatre is worthwhile. The $9 entry fee is well worthwhile and goes to a good cause.
Very informative about the whaling history of the region. Well worth a visit (particularly during whale watching season)
