The history of whaling in Jervis Bay

If you’re in the Huskisson area in the new year, you might like to head to the Lady Denman Heritage Complex. From 7 January – 28 February 2012 a new exhibition will be on display – From Commodity to Conservation: A history of whaling in Jervis Bay. The exhibition explores the history of whaling from the dangerous days of hand-thrown harpoons to whale watching cruises on the bay.
