Ships and Subs (Transport IV)

The Australian National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour. Seen here are HMAS Vampire, a Daring class destroyer built in Sydney at Cockatoo Island- read more here; and HMAS Onslow, an Oberon Class submarine - read more here.
The Maritime Museum collection also includes a naval patrol boat, a replica of James Cook's Endeavour (seen here in my previous blog), and a racing yacht, tug boat, lightship, ship's lifeboat, a pearling lugger, a ketch, Indonesian trading ship and Vietnamese refugee boat, amongst others.


  1. Nice photo.

    If you want to go on a treasure hunt in your hometown, go to my website to learn more.

  2. Very interesting museum both inside and out.

  3. Yes, it's one of my favourite museums in Sydney. It freaks me out how squashy it is in the submarine...

  4. it's a great place to visit!
    i have been there :-)

  5. Sally, these are great transport shots; diversity and wealth of information as always. My favourite is the scooter and espresso machine.
