    There's a great history of both the indigenous Australians, and the Chinese who came for gold. Make sure you visit the upstairs area for this.

    It's great to see one of Lt Cook's bow anchors. It gives you a real sense of history!

    Check out the Aboriginal artifacts on the top floor or the recovered anchor from Captain Cook's HMS Endeavour
