Where are we going today?

Perched on the Indian Ocean's shore, the Western Australian Maritime Museum is symbolic of Fremantle’s past, present and future as a coastal city and port.

The Museum houses several unique galleries that explore WA's relationship with the sea. From leisure boats and handcrafted sailing boats to commercial pearl luggers, the Museum inspires visitors to discover WA’s affinity with the ocean.

The Museum is home to the winning America's Cup yacht, Australia II, an Oberon class submarine HMAS Ovens, Jon Sanders’ Parry Endeavour and many other iconic vessels from WA's maritime history.

A wall of cargoes displays the incredible variety of trade goods, from sandalwood to sheep, whale oil to wheat, all celebrating Western Australia’s maritime trade. Plus experience the sights and sounds of a 15th century Middle Eastern marketplace, and see the Sama Biasa (Indonesian Fishing Boat) and plenry more besides. Its a great day out for mini pirates!
