  • This is a fantastic place. It is well worth the fee to get into the Antarctic exhibits, as they're fascinating. If you don't feel like spending money, then the boardwalks are wheelchair friendly and have excellent interpretive signage (rug up when it's windy or cool!) The cafe does good food and coffee, and the gift shop is also well stocked. Overall, a very enjoyable place to visit.
  • Some great information and the displays are good. It was very quiet when we went which helped. Not sure if it's for all the parks but we used a Keep cup for our coffee at the cafe and it was half price!
