Cervantes Historical Society

A rollicking shipwreck and community past

This delightful collection of artefacts tells the story of Cervantes’ rich shipwreck history, its fishing past and the community that rolled up their sleeves and shaped their coastal township through hard work, good times and big doses of community spirit. Testament to their can-do attitude is the adjoining second-hand shop and craft store, sales from which help fund Cervantes Historical Society activities.
