  • It was quite costly to get in and so if you had kids it would be an expensive trip you can see alot from outside 
  • After exploring the Botanic Gardens across the goodwill bridge and you will see immediately. It is just a left hand direction. Ships with a very unique design and materials. The first amusement park for children and was confused. Replica of the cannon.

  • My husband has been reading Jessica Watson's book so seeing the actual boat she sailed in was wonderful for our family.

  • 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.
