The Queensland Maritime Museum (QMM) is located at the heritage-listed South Brisbane Dry Dock. Berthed in the dock are the WWII frigate HMAS Diamantina and the lightship CarpentariaDiamantina is a river class frigate named after the major river in western Queensland that was named in honour of Lady Diamantina Bowen, wife of Queensland’s first Governor. The ship has international significance as the sole surviving river class frigate in the world, for her role hosting the final surrender ceremony of WWII, and for her 20 year contribution to oceanography. 

The dry dock is open to public inspection and is one of only a few such visitor experiences in the world. The dock played an important role in the development of Queensland and during WWII.

QMM houses a fascinating collection of maritime artefacts that represent many aspects of Queensland’s rich maritime heritage. The displays tell stories and depict the challenges and inspiration of the sea, from around the world.

We are focused on providing a high quality visitor experience and receive much positive feedback from our visitors to the effect that QMM is one of the finest maritime museums in Australia.
