It is a shame that a person in a wheelchair cant access all floors in this whale centre. We were charged a cheaper rate to go in but it would of been nice to go on other floors. what we did see was good

Staff were friendly but should at least know where the regions of south Australia are, Also I found the sea shepperd stuff a little strange. Are you celebrating the history of whaling or condoning it?
