Located on the Western Bank promenade, this museum is dedicated to Brisbane’s history as a maritime area. One highlight is the massive map that plots the 1500 shipwrecks (mostly along the Reef) in Queensland’s seas since 1791. There is a life size navy frigate the HMAS Diamantina which you can climb aboard, or you can look at the display of the sinking of the Pandora, a ship that was sent to retrieve the mutineer from Captain Cook’s Bounty.
