Australian Historical Ships

Amongst its collection of historical boats and ships it a replica of the HMB Endeavour. Full scale and built in Australia, it was carefully replicated from the original, HMS Endeavour, the research ship used by the then Lieutenant James Cook when he first charted the east coast of Australia.

Another ship at the National Maritime Museum you can clamber on is the HMS Vampire. This destroyer, built in Australia, served in the Vietnam War amongst other places.

You can also explore their submarine, the HMAS Onslow. If you want a closer look than you can get here, you would have to join the navy.

You can sail on the Endeavour on one of its many expeditions to other ports, where they open the ship for the public. See their website Australian National Maritime Museum.
