North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum
North Stradbroke Island Historical Museum information
Dunwich , on the western coast, is where the ferries dock and is home to the North Stradbroke Historical Museum, near the post office. The museum is definitely worth an hour or two’s browsing, with stories of shipwrecks, harrowing voyages, life in the ‘benevolent asylum’ and an introduction to the rich Aboriginal history of the island. An oddball collection of island artefacts includes the skull of a sperm whale, washed up along Main Beach in 2004.
