Construction began in 1851 on what is now the Maritime Museum. Originally an old commissariat store, the museum was opened by Sir Charles Court in 1979 on the state's 150th anniversary. Inside, the vestiges of shipwrecks, coins, pieces of china and wood can be found along with other items such as the bell from an unknown ship, the anchor from Matthew Flinders ship and the SS Xantho's connecting rod. Do not miss the models of the infamous sailing vessels - Endeavour and Duyfken. Merchandise includes books, key rings, models, tapes, maps and postcards.
