Queenscliffe Maritime Museum
Escape for a short while into Queenscliff's fascinating past
The ship wrecks, the rescues and lifeboat, and the Sea Pilots who continue to bring ships safely through the Rip and into Port
You will experience all of this and much more at the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum.
Exhibits depict the maritime history of Queenscliff and Southern Port Phillip, wrecks, lifeboats, rescues, early diving equipment, artefacts from shipwrecks, lighthouse display, and historic charts and maps of Port Phillip and the coastline of Victoria. In the Boatshed stories of the Queenscliff Couta Boat and local boat builders are told.
Lifeboat Queenscliffe - initially the Museum was formed to preserve the last Queenscliff lifeboat which was in service between 1926 and 1976. The lifeboat forms the core of the Museum collection.
The Museum is responsible for the preservation of many historic shipping and fishing-related items. In the grounds are: heritage listed Fishermen's Waiting Shed; an original Fisherman's Cottage; the buried remains of the torpedo boat HMVS Lonsdale from Victoria's Navy; the Deckhouse of the Shandon; anchors; beacons; buoys, propellers and much much more.
