  • Took our kids on board - Family Pass $15 super reasonable price and worth it. Best experience, friendly staff with a wealth of information. Our boys (7 and 4 year olds) got a certificate and it made their day!!! Thank you so much, totally worth it ..
  • If you love Australian maritime history come aboard, if not have a look inside how it feels to be in a war ship. But beware watch your step on ladders and duck head when climbing down.
  • Arrived at 1.20pm to view the vessel. Asked to vacate vessel at 2pm as it was too quiet to remain open! Don't bother paying to go inside look from the jetty at least you can take your time and not be rudely ejected.
  • The guides are very informative and helpful, just ask!
  • Great group of volunteers showing off the history of the ship

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
