Shipwreck museum was surprisingly interesting. Staff were friendly & enthusiastic about their jobs. Dave (a volunteer) who gave us a great history lesson about the early exploration of WA was a gem!! Recommend this for a couple of hrs of entertainment.

The museum is free or you can give a donation. Interesting to see the artefacts and part of the wreck of the Batavia and other wrecks. Well worth a look
