View on map

Bass Strait Maritime Centre Devonport is situated in parkland at the mouth of the Mersey River. Through objects, images and interactive displays, the Centre explores the themes of the natural history of Bass Strait and its islands, European exploration, settlement, early shipbuilders and entrepreneurs, shipwrecks, the impact of steam, the creation of the Port City of Devonport and Naval history. A simulated experience ‘Take the Helm of the SS Woniora’ gives visitors a chance to test their skills and bring a 1910 steamer into the Mersey River or through the heads of Port Phillip Bay. The newly restored Julie Burgess ketch though, provides the real experience. Two-hour sailings operate from October through to the end of June on Wednesdays and Sundays subject to weather conditions, taking passengers out into Bass Strait and back!
We look forward to welcoming you!
