Australian National Maritime Museum
Sydney is Australia’s largest city. It is home to the world’s largest natural harbor and many iconic Australian landmarks. For lovers of all things Maritime, the Australian National Maritime Museum is not to be missed.
The Australian National Maritime Museum contains a series of permanent and temporary exhibits exploring Australia’s important connection to the sea.
The museum entertains over half a million visitors every year. It has a wide array of exhibits including Navigators, Sora-First People, Passengers, Watermarks, Navy and Australia-US Relationship. These exhibits cover the discovery of Australia, the history of the Aboriginal people and their relationship with water, the individuals who have crossed the sea to live in Australia, Australia’s love of water, the Royal Australian Navy and the close relationship Australia and the USA have.
Outside the museum, you are able to visit and board a series of vessels, including a replica of the HM Bark Endeavour, the HMAS Vampire, Submarine, HMAS Onslow and more. Before heading off, be sure to walk along the Welcome Wall, a bronze wall that lists the names of individuals who immigrated to Australia. Over 24,000 names are listed.
