A very interesting icon in Brisbane. Well worth visiting a real naval boat and learning local Brisbane History. Good location near Southbank and Goodwill Bridge.

A great place to take the kids (of all ages), lots of hands-on exhibits. The Museum touches on maritime history going back centuries.

I decided to do the tour here kind of late in the afternoon before heading back over the river on the pedestrian bridge above. Because it was 45 minutes before the ship was closed up for the day they sold me the cheaper concession ticket....More
