  • ANZ Ship Register
    The register of Australian and New Zealand ships and boats. The register of Australian and New Zealand vessels is a private project being undertaken as a hobby. It arose through the research work undertaken for the restoration of the tug Waratah and barque James Craig in the 1970s and 1980s. Information was being uncovered on other vessels for which there was no central repository. Lists and card records were drawn up in those earlier years including a card-based Register of Historic Vessels administered by the Sydney Maritime Museum. This electronic register commenced in 2000. There are currently more than 47,000 vessels recorded. Objective: To record the history, details, references and existent material of all significant Australian and New Zealand ships and boats.

  • Historic Shipwrecks | Department of the Environment, Australia
    Australia protects its shipwrecks and their associated relics that are older than 75 years through the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976. The Historic Shipwrecks Act applies to Australian waters that extend from the low tide mark to the end of the continental shelf and is administered in collaboration between the Commonwealth and the States, Northern Territory and Norfolk Island. Some Australian shipwreck sites lie within protected or no-entry zones. The Historic Shipwrecks Act is delivered through the Historic Shipwrecks Program. Its objectives are to research, explore, document and protect Australia's historic shipwreck heritage. Each State or Territory program offers different opportunities for public participation as do maritime archaeological volunteer associations that exist in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia.

  • Maritime Museum of Townsville
    The original museum was begun by the Townsville Harbour Board which is now the Port of Townsville Ltd. Shortly after this the Seafarers Association assumed responsibility to ensure the safe keeping of local maritime cultural history. It was located in the Pier Master's office between berths 4 and 6 at the Townsville port. To allow for the expanding collection and ease of public access, the building was relocated in 1992 to where it stands today. One of the most exciting events planned for the Museum will be the permanent berthing of the patrol boat HMAS Townsville at the museum. Gifted by the Department of Defence, the vessel will provide a unique attraction for visitors, local sea cadets, and associated personnel. South Townsville, QLD Australia
