The Queensland Maritime Museum was established in 1971 and is a fantastic experience for the whole family. It features the historic warship Diamantina, the 1925 steam tug Forceful, the heritage listed South Brisbane Dry Dock, and a large collection of exhibits such as Jessica's Pink Lady.
Visitors can board the Diamantina at her berth in the dry dock and access throughout the vessel is visitor friendly. The Diamantina has been restored to her 1945 condition and she is the only one of her kind left in the world. Completed in 1881, the South Brisbane Dry Dock housing the Diamantina and a lightship is the centrepiece of the Museum. Visitors can gain easy access to the dry dock and marvel at its construction and the large warship above them. Lighthouses are popular exhibits and the Museum has a very special presentation of lighthouse technology.
The Maritime Museum can facilitate school and group visits, holds regular events and exhibitions, and runs education and research programs. The space can also be hired for functions and weddings throughout the year. It’s open daily between 9:30am and 4:30pm, with last admission at 3:30pm.
