Overlooking Warrnambool's picturesque Lady Bay, the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum Complex recounts the treacherous history of Victoria’s southern coast, which has claimed over 160 ships.

The complex re-creates a nineteenth-century coastal port, and is built around the original lighthouses and fortifications.Visitors can explore the original buildings and re-created village, which features more than 30 buildings, including an inn, newspaper office, blacksmith and tearooms serving refreshments.

You can also climb onboard historic vessels moored in the harbour, view early film footage of maritime wrecks, sailing ships and whales, and see recovered relics from local shipwrecks – notably, the Loch Ard Peacock, a priceless porcelain statue rescued from the Loch Ard disaster in 1878.
