WA Maritime Museum explores how our relationship with the ocean shapes what it means to be Western Australian. Perched on the harbour, the Museum attracts one-third of the international/interstate tourists visiting Fremantle, Perth’s vibrant port city. It showcases the moments, voyages and vessels; the artefacts, people and the stories in our rich maritime history.
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.
Permanent galleries immerse visitors in their ocean-centric culture and their dynamic calendar of temporary exhibitions and programming ensures there’s always something new.
The Museum can be reached by water (on a river cruise from Perth to the B-shed terminal), by train, bus or car. It’s a short walk from the station and there is ample parking in Victoria Quay.
WA Maritime Museum is an iconic community hub and a world-class tourist attraction that is symbolic of Fremantle’s past, present and future.
