Through objects, images and interactive displays, the Bass Strait Maritime 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, creation of the Port City of Devonport and naval history. A simulated experience "Take the Helm" of the SS Woniora gives visitors the chance to test their skills and bring a 1910's steamer into the Mersey River or through the Heads of Port Phillip Bay. The newly restored ketch "Julie Burgess" though provides the real experience. Two-hour sailings are scheduled for Wednesdays and Sundays subject to weather conditions. Please note minimum numbers apply and passengers should contact the Bass Strait Maritime Centre for bookings and departure times. Get ready to take the challenge!!! The Centre includes a Gift shop with a variety of maritime themed gifts and souvenirs. Snacks, small meals and great coffee is served in the"Bass Strait Diner" open 10am to 4pm. less
