SYDNEY HERITAGE FLEET

Bigger is not always better, at least when it comes to maritime museums. The Sydney Heritage Fleet (also known as the Sydney Maritime Museum) has pipped the larger National Maritime Museum to this proverbial post. Boasting an extensive collection of heritage vessels (tall ships, steamboats, ferries and more) this museum lovingly charts Sydney’s maritime history, marking out our place as one of the world’s great seaports. Best of all, the Sydney Heritage Fleet gives you the chance to become a seafarer with their James Craig tall ship, the steam tug Waratah and the steam launch Lady Hopetoun all offering regular harbour cruises!
