As night falls, step inside the village to experience dramatic stories of Australia’s rich maritime history. Tales of the Shipwreck Coast takes you on a journey through the ages. From local Aboriginal stories to our colourful whaling past then to events that gave our coastline a reputation that inspired fear and trepidation among mariners.
See the village come to life and experience the stories told through projections onto a nine-metre water wall. Be taken on a journey into the past where those seeking a new life in Australia braved the perils of the Southern Ocean and where the livelihoods of men depended on capturing the largest mammals the world has ever seen.
