Spent a most enjoyable few hours in this wonderful attraction. The staff are helpful,knowledgeable,and enthusiastic about this little gem. You need to get up close to the attractions to get the bigger picture but worth a little of your time to take in the masses...MoreThanks for visiting our museum.

Carnarvon Blowholes

Reviewed By EmmaRLB - Windsor, United Kingdom

The Quobba (Carnarvon) Blowholes are definitely worth the time out to see, a fascinating natural phenomenon. Also a little further up the road (over the hill) is a beautiful beach with some great snorkelling. The bay is protected from the big waves and it's usually very calm. A must see!

Great attraction, shearer museum, railway exhibition, very well displayed lighthouse keepers house. Sadly the jetty is closed, this needs to be fixed up as Carnarvon does not have a lot to offer.

Carnarvon Heritage Precinct

Going forward into history. The Precinct was the original Port of Carnarvon, which comprised the One Mile Jetty, Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage, Lighthouse and the Carnarvon Tramway. Come and enjoy a Jetty Walk, Ride the Coffee Pot Train $10 per Adult, Explore the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage Museum, Visit the One Mile Jetty Interpretive Centre, Wander the Railway Station Museum and the meander along one or all of the walktrails.

Reviewed By BT3rd - Windsor, United Kingdom

Next to the mile long jetty it is open 9-1 and it is a delightful little museum tastefully laid out; a real piece of Carnarvon history. We were lucky enough to have a long conversation with the last lighthouse keeper's daughter. It was fascinating listening to how the town was in the 50's & 60's. Especially how the jetty was the lifeblood of the town when it was used by the supply ships. Also to see photos of the sheep being driven to the ships along the pier.
It is well worth a look around if you like local history.

Homestead Hampers

Reviewed By Merel A - Perth, Australia

I've come across Homestead Hampers on the Carnarvon Farmers Market last Saturday and have tried one of their meet pies. The Owner, Chris, told me about how they use local meat and produce to develop their products and I though that was really cool. It's great to support the local community in such a tasty way!
