Lughrata: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Furneaux Museum


The Furneaux Museum on Flinders Island showcases the history of the Furneaux Group of Islands. Relics from shipwrecks and other artefacts are housed in seven buildings which themselves are exhibits.
The museum has artefacts from some of Australia's earliest European settlement, such as an anchor from the Sydney Cove, wrecked on Preservation Island in 1797. The dark history of the Wybalenna settlement is recorded in the Aboriginal Room, together with an exquisite collection of Aboriginal shell necklaces. Relics from many of the shipwrecks that occurred around the islands are housed in the Nissan Hut. The Mutton Bird Hut gives an authentic glimpse into an island tradition. Other exhibits demonstrate the geology, fauna, shells, bird life and early pioneering life of the islands. A collection of albums and photographs cover all aspects of life in the Furneaux Group and provide an invaluable tool for researchers.
The Museum is housed in buildings which reflect the history of the Furneaux region. Dryazell, for instance, was once a private school and schoolmaster's residence. A visit to the museum can be combined with a trip to Wybalenna Chapel and Cemetery and several idyllic beaches.
Please note entry payment is by cash only.
