The involvement of the Royal Australian Navy in WW1 is sometimes overshadowed by the stories of the soldiers at Gallipoli and on the Western Front. Take this opportunity to find out more about this equally fascinating history.

Brought to the Queenscliffe Maritime Museum courtesy of the Australian National Maritime Museum ‘War at Sea – the Navy in WW1’ provides the perfect opportunity to discover more about the heroic exploits and day-to-day life of the Australian Navy’s first major engagement.

This panel exhibition uses excerpts from diaries, ship’s logs and letters home to paint a vivid picture of life at sea during these tumultuous years

Visitors will see rare archival footage of the Navy during WW1 which provides a window into life on battleships as well as the troop transport ships which ferried soldiers around the globe. Or watch dramatic scenes depicting the battle between HMAS Sydney and the German raider SMS Emden.
