“Maritime History by the sea”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

The Newcastle Maritime Centre is a small museum on the waterfront in the Honeysuckle precinct. It is quite close to Civic station and the free city bus passes close by. The museum appears to be in a rennovated dock building.

The centre has a number of displays on the maritime history of Newcastle, including interesting displays on various ship wrecks and mishaps that have occured over the years. It has some interactive displays on Port Hunter and historical information on the 1950's "Maitland Floods". The centre has a small gift shop.

I would recommend visiting the museum as part of a visit to the Honeysuckle precinct. There are quite a few restaurants close by. Combining this with visits to the other attractions close by would be a good idea
