A theatre experience allows visitors to imagine a world beyond the stunning, extraordinary imagery of Fraser Island and Great Sandy Strait. Children can get hands-on with natural discovery in a dedicated children's section with storytelling and interactive challenges.

An information kiosk and gift store provides visitors will information, trails and brochures to continue their Fraser Coast experience and the chance to purchase unique locally made keepsakes and regional produce.
