A good example of the history of Townsville.

You can spend a couple of hours looking at the maritime history of the area. It is worth a look you will not be disappointed.

Outstanding Maritime Museum - Highly recommended

We have been to over 70 countries and so at least that many Maritime Museums - likely a few hundred..
While the Townsville Maritime Museum cannot be compared to the biggest and best in major shipping cities such as Cobh, Norfolk, Southampton, Belfast etc it is excellent when compared to those in smaller cities and town.
The displays & models are very interesting and bought back many memories from incidents like the HMAS Melbourne & HMAS Voyager and our visits to and seeing the actual boats, rafts and ships.
A visit here is highly recommended.

Townsville Maritime Museum

Very interesting informative visit to a small volunteer run museum.
The buildings themselves were interesting in that they had been put together to represent a ship.
The exhibits were numerous, with a major exhibit on the battle of the Coral Sea, Operation Jaywick: and the story of the MV Krait used to transport, commandos from Australia to Singapore to attack enemy shipping.
The staff very friendly, knowledgable and helpful.
Thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours browsing.

Interesting museum

Shows the shipwrecks in the area , a room of model ships and a room showing Townsvilles involvement in the battle of the Coral Sea in 1942. Has a 1/72 scale model of the Lexington complete with fighters and fighter bombers on the deck. Well worth the $8 entry fee. This is spread over several rooms.

Loved it - entry fee is worth it!

If you enjoy everything maritime you will love this. History of WW2 and the roles that society played, particularly the practical hardworking women of the region. A dedicated display of the Yongala.
ON a different note... I do wish that they would hang the flags correctly in the main display area.
