The Queensland Maritime Museum is a famous comprehensive museum in Brisbane, the kids will definitely enjoy it, the tickets are well worth it, we took the kids to see Diamantina and it was very interesting, but for different reasons.
History on The South Bank BrisbaneOur first stop on our sightseeing tour of Brisbane.My husband loves boats and history. Arrived early this was good as no air con in the ship you go in.This is a small boat yard museum at the end of the South Bank, the main destroyer is laid out easily to walk through with plenty to look at and read about from its era, giving a great insight to how life was for those on board back many years ago.She was in a dry dock to give you a proper look at her overall size. After this we’re some smaller craft an engine room and various guns etc from the war.We spent a couple of hours here and would highly recommend to any history buffs or ship lovers. They also had on the walls many of our “sayings” then a full explanation of where they originated from.
If you are a naval enthusiast, the Queensland Maritime Museum will satisfy your curiosity about a variety of naval vessels, which was built in 1917 and is located on the South Bank of Brisbane. The museum has a dazzling display of models of ships, including sunken wrecks off the coast of Queensland, and the restored Royal Australian Navy vessel Diamantina is the town's treasure, and you can climb to this frigate built in 1945 Another highlight of the year's intense naval battle was a huge map of the site of more than 1,500 wrecks in Queensland since 1791, most of which were sunk on a rock.
We have been often, being locals. MOB has amazing staff who come up with the best exhibitions. Quite inspiring, and good for locals and visitors. Highly recommend it. If you have time visit the clock tower!
Not much for ordinary tourists, but for sailors or military fans is a different story. It took a long time to see a huge map of the site of more than 1,500 sunken ships in Queensland's waters since 1791, most of them on reefs.
The Queensland Maritime Museum displays model ships, Royal Australian Navy vessels. Located at the south end of the South Bank parking lot in Brisbane, most of the exhibits are in an outdoor dock, closed on weekends, and many boats can be seen on the bridge.
