Planning your visit

The Furneaux Museum is a 20-minute drive north from Whitemark on sealed roads.

Coffee and food are available at a food van operating at the Museum. For trading hours and more information click here. The Museum has a range of selected merchandise for sale such as books of local relevance and locally-made cards and soaps.

We recommend you allow at least one hour for your visit to the Museum and follow with a visit to nearby Wybalenna historic site. There are also several lovely beaches in the area. You could easily spend a day here - but plan ahead. Apart from the food van there are no food or fuel outlets north of Whitemark.

There is wheelchair access around the Museum site but space is restricted inside the early buildings  and some have steps.
