  • We had our wedding ceremony on this ship. The crew were great, they obviously love the boat. Whether you are looking for a venue or looking to spend a fascinating hour or two I can highly recommend this historic monument.
  • Excellent experience that was unforgettable. Even the kids enjoyed it. Highly recommend. Gives a great insight on what it was like to live in a battleship in those times.
  • Volunteer staff were lovely! Knowledgeable about the boat and enthusiastic about the displays. They took us into the boiler room and turned on the engine for us. Very cool!
  • It's always nice to see HMAS Castlemaine, anytime of the night or day with the Melbourne skyline for a backdrop. Rain, hail or shine it is a striking presence.
  • A great old war ship from another time. Well worth the walk around and inside of the ship. And cheap to. $6 an adult. Worth the look
