Join our member organisation The National Maritime Museum on Sunday 8th March 2020 to learn about our rich naval heritage and history while soaking up the sea-breeze and enjoying spectacular views of our city!
The museum’s Curator of Royal Australian Navy maritime archaeology, Dr James Hunter, will guide you throughout this historical tour – taking in the spectacular Chowder Bay, as well as Garden and Cockatoo Islands.
About the cruise |
At Chowder Bay, view the remnants of past military occupation and the heritage buildings that still exist on the precinct.
Next stop is Garden Island where you will explore colonial fortifications, the unique rock carvings left by those on-board the First Fleet and the Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre.
Final stop will be the UNESCO World Heritage listed Cockatoo Island, where you will learn about its changing role from World War I to the Cold War, while touring its dry docks and naval buildings.
Hope to ‘sea’ you there!
