Maritime Museum

Come and see the oldest nautical collection in the country, started way back in 1872.

Climb aboard the ketch Active II, lie down in the cramped sleeping quarters endured by sailors of yesteryear, or research your ancestors on the passenger databases which date back
to 1836. Explore interactive exhibits over three floors of an 1850s bond store.

Nautical instruments, bathing costumes, shipwreck artefacts, paintings, model ships, photographs and more, including the largest collection of ships figureheads in the southern hemisphere.

Audio, film, and old ships logs tell the stories of the sea.
