In 1971 the NSRI Station 21 was established in St Francis Bay. Their boat house was built at Granny’s Pool, but in 1997 they moved on to their new boathouse at Port St Francis.
The St Francis Kromme Trust converted the old boathouse into a Heritage Eco Centre, housing displays depicting the history, flora, fauna and fishing industry of the Greater St Francis area. It performs the function of a museum but it also serves as a coffee shop where locals and visitors can enjoy a coffee with an awesome view of Granny’s Pool and Bruce’s.
The Heritage Eco Centre is open Wednesdays (14:30 – 16:30) and Saturdays (10:30 – 12:30). Study the displays on local fauna and flora, the freshly picked flowering indigenous plants to help you identify the local flora and more.
