Australia’s history is populated with maritime related stories. With over 1,000 rivers and a coast that stretches for more than 36,000 kilometres, it is no surprise that Australia abounds with stories of people who have lived and worked on the water.

This exhibition presents some of those stories, exploring the remarkable connections between people and their boats.

Remarkable, created by the Australian Maritime Museums Council (AMMC) and the Australian National Maritime Museum, provides an opportunity for regional
audiences to discover national and local stories. 

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
