The centre’s interpretive panels explore the life cycle of tuna and the history of tuna fishing.  The centre also provides a video for viewing, as well as a life-size tuna model. Before leaving, be sure to check out the 19th century Fresnel Lamp, a replica of the lamp once belonging to Cape George Point Lighthouse.
