Once the ‘Dunwich Benevolent Asylum’ – a home for the destitute – this small but impressive museum describes shipwrecks and harrowing voyages, and gives an introduction to the island’s rich Aboriginal history (the Quandamooka are the traditional owners of Minjerribah, aka Straddie). Island artefacts include the skull of a sperm whale washed up on Main Beach in 2004, and the old Point Lookout lighthouse lens.
