HMAS Diamantina is a well-presented time-capsule of Australia's WW2 Navy, thanks to the efforts of the many museum volunteers who have restored her back to something close to her original state. I took my kids to see Diamantina and we all found it interesting, but for different reasons. I was able to appreciate the practicalities of how a WW2 Naval... More

Highly recommend! Its a great day out with plenty to see and do and ships/boats to go on. The guys really know their stuff and are great to talk to. Its a great day out you do not want to miss when visiting Brisbane if you're into ships, boats and anything to do with sea going vessels.

Very good, well worth the entry fee, Being an ex RNZN sailor, I enjoyed the displays especially the walk through on the actual Ship in the Dry Dock. Very good liaison guide as we entered.

Visited this attraction on Thursday 7th May 2015. The museum houses Ella’s Pink Lady in which Jessica Watson circumnavigated the world when she was 16 years old. We explored the A61 (aka Penguin) which was a pearl divers’ boat that operated in the Torres Straits. We climbed down the steps of the dry dock to see the hull of the... More

Located at the southern enď of the south bank park lands it is a perfect place to ex0lore queenslands maritime history. The key display is the diamantina .... a small destryer in the old dey dock. It's a perfect place for kids to explore and have a hands on experience. I highly recommend this museum.

The museum has a lot of maritime exhibits, including a dry docked frigate which is fun to explore, lots of photos, and artefacts from the era of Captain Cook. We are not particularly interested in things nautical but found this to be an interesting way to spend a couple of hours. Helpful volunteers are on hand to provide more information... More

The Queensland Maritime Museum is a great place to take kids and learn all about Australian Maritime History. Jessica Watson's Ella's Pink Lady, World War II Frigate Diamantina and Brisbane's last coal fired tug boat Forceful are the highlights. Some relics of the Pandora (which was sent after the Bounty) and ballast from Captain Cook's Endeavour are great too! Would... More

If you were a maritime Buff this place would be more attractive, as it was, the River Class Frigate on display is the main feature and is worth a look see if you are into this kind of thing. 2 to 3 hours if what we spent here, the Museum is staffed by volunteers, so the money goes to a... More
