Bass Strait Maritime Centre

Bass Strait Maritime Centre

Bass Strait Maritime Centre Devonport is situated in parkland at the mouth of the Mersey River. Explore and discover Devonport’s local history as well as stories and events of Bass Strait, the infamous stretch of water between mainland Australia and the island state of Tasmania.

Objects, images and interactive displays explore 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. Such experience as ‘Take the Helm of the SS Woniora’ gives visitors a chance to test their skills and bring a 1910 steamer into the Mersey River or through the heads of Port Phillip Bay.
