  • This ship is worth a look at any age, your bound to find something interesting on board. To think that many people moved around this ship at ease is mind boggling when it was at sea. There are stairs ...  more »
  • This has been here forever and is worth a look if you're going near the goodwill bridge and headed over to the botanic gardens. 
  • Inside the museum are various artefacts relating to life at sea - equipment and some settings of rooms. Outside is the Dry Dock,Pumphouse and ship.

  • Fantastic location on the water with a serene view of the water and city. The historic ambience of the structure and ship combine to make this a place I will be coming back to. Strongly recommend.
  • Very good and awesome that you can go down into the dry dock now. Seems like some work needs to be done on the inside now. There some great stuff in there but it's not being used to its full potential.
  • Great place to learn a bit of history. Not as good as the one in Sydney however.
  • Don't miss this place. Worth a visit.
  • Although small but it has a good set of exhibits. And Diamantina is absolutely a must to see from the inside.
