Queensland's Maritime Museum is situated at the end of the newly opened Goodwill Pedestrian Bridge at the southern entrance of the South Bank Parklands. The museum, founded in 1971, preserves Queensland's fascinating maritime heritage and memorabilia. One can find a vast range of historic sailing ship models and learn about some of the 1500 shipwrecks that have occurred along the Great Barrier Reef. Extensive Australian Naval records and memorabilia of World War II, presented on board the permanently displayed HMAS Diamantina, provide a fascinating insight. The museum also has a souvenir shop.
