The Sound and Light Show

As night falls, step inside the village to experience dramatic stories of Australia’s rich maritime history, told vividly through the multimillion-dollar Sound and Light Show Experience.

Tales of the Shipwreck Coast

Our new sound and light show combines three great stories.

Tales of the Shipwreck Coast takes you on a journey through the ages. From local Aboriginal stories to our colourful whaling past then to events that gave our coastline a reputation that inspired fear and trepidation among mariners.

Book your experience now

See the village come to life and experience the stories told through projections onto a nine-metre water wall.

Be taken on a journey into the past where those seeking a new life in Australia braved the perils of the Southern Ocean and where the livelihoods of men depended on capturing the largest mammals the world has ever seen.

Shows begin at dusk, with start times changing seasonally. The show is not weather dependant and runs rain, hail or shine. The Wharf Theatre is open fronted so warm clothing in cooler months is recommended.

The lantern walk takes place over steep and rough terrain. A transport option is available for those with limited mobility.

Please note that the experience involves strobe lighting, fog effects and some sudden movements.

Scenes involving stylisations of hunting may concern some viewers, particularly small children.

*No animals were harmed in the production of this experience.

Bookings are essential
