Interesting little "village" with lots of fishing boats, fish market off the boats, several good fish 'n chip places, heritage museum, a park nearby and a number of small touristy type of shops. Overall a pleasant side trip.

Lots of little "local" shops. Heringers meat store is the best !!! Love the garden & gift shop called the prickly pear. It's great for the kids to as their is big playground that my son loves. Plus it's beautiful walk along the river. Very quaint place, sadly it is really starting to get built up around their.
