This historic Australian warship, commissioned in 1942 and built in Williamstown, now houses the Maritime Trust of Australia's fascinating maritime museum. Adults and older kids with a specific interest in naval warfare will find it hard to stick to the set path through historic posters, instruments, photographs and other memorabilia as the ship itself boasts historically significant weapons (best examined from the pier). The Maritime Trust is happy to organize group and school tours throughout the week. A great alternative to public transport is to catch the ferry from Southgate to Williamstown.
