This had a couple of ships that you could walk around. They provided earphone so that you can hear specifics about each area. Talked about WW2.

This delightful maritime museum is located on Brisbane’s Southbank and has a wonderful collection of exhibits which will certainly whet the appetites of many a seafarer and those who are not! We really enjoyed scrambling all over HMAS Diamantina which was decommissioned back in the...More

A very interesting icon in Brisbane. Well worth visiting a real naval boat and learning local Brisbane History. Good location near Southbank and Goodwill Bridge.

A great place to take the kids (of all ages), lots of hands-on exhibits. The Museum touches on maritime history going back centuries.

I really enjoyed this site though walking through the ship was the absolute highlight. Be prepared the indoor space is hot and stuffy

I decided to do the tour here kind of late in the afternoon before heading back over the river on the pedestrian bridge above. Because it was 45 minutes before the ship was closed up for the day they sold me the cheaper concession ticket....More
