AboutGladstone Maritime Museum's displays focus on but are not limited to the maritime history of the Curtis Coast and the Capricorn-Bunker Coral Islands. Displays cover discovery and exploration of the focus area, settlement, early and current industry, Naval involvement and recreational use of the region. Notable displays include the "Wreck Wall" showing shipwreck location up until recent times, and the "Jenny Lind" figurehead with the story of the self-rescue saga following the shipwreck on Kenn Reef. A number of very detailed models illustrate early sailing vessels, naval vessels, and even the paddlesteamer "PS Premier" which provided the passenger link from the end of the Railway at Gladstone through the narrows to Rockhampton over a century ago. Group tours are available, please contact their friendly volunteers for bookings.
