  • The archaeological riches from four Dutch shipwrecks - Batavia, Verguide Draeck (Gilt Dragon), Zuytdorp, and Zeewijk are revealed in the Shipwrecks Gallery.
  • Additionally available are the wrecks of the HMAS Sydney (II) and HSK Kormoran as they currently lie, 2500 metres deep on the ocean floor, in From Great Depths, a moving exhibit and 3D film.
  • The Museum is also home to incredible travelling exhibitions from around the world. Next coming up is Bush Mechanics, a showcase of the ingenuity of outback mechanics, whose clever resourcefulness can turn branches, spinifex and sand into tools and spare parts to get cars back on the road. Based on the ABC series.
