Australians have always enjoyed a close link to the sea – for sport, play, exploration, defence, industry and adventure. The Australian National Maritime Museum captures many of these stories with lively exhibitions, rare and fascinating artifacts, fun activities and the chance to climb aboard and experience life at sea.
Most importantly for our Flickr friends, the Australian National Maritime Museum has an amazing and extensive collection of photographs that document Australians and their interactions with water. The collection includes images of water-based activities such as sailing, swimming and rowing, as well as events and vessels of the Royal Australian Navy.
Here you will discover a photographic record of visiting foreign ships, shipwrecks and Australian people. While visiting our Flickr site please feel free to comment and share information on any of the images you see.
