I went and saw The Nobbies Centre with my wife and 13 yo daughter.

The colours were wonderful; the blues of the water and the white surf contrast with the... More

The Nobbies centre is such a great set up with a spectacular view of the ocean and seal rock. We recently visited the Antarctic exhibition. It was very informative, high tech and fun for all ages.

My three school aged children enjoyed our visit to the Nobbies and the breathtaking views as we walked out along the boardwalks. Offering some of the best scenery on the island as well as an amazing Antarctic Journey exhibition by the WWF (additional cost).
