Description

Duyfken is the first known European ship to visit Australia -- 164 years before the arrival of Captain James Cook. Nearly 400 years later a working full-scale replica was built in Western Australia to tell the 'Duyfken story' to Australia. You are invited to participate in the exciting replica project by visiting the replica in museum mode, sail on it or become a volunteer. There are rich, rewarding and exciting educational experiences here for all ages.
 
The Duyfken replica has been acclaimed around the world as the finest "Age of Discovery" replica ship ever built. The Duyfken 1606 Replica Foundation was formed in 1993 to build the ship and after her first voyage in 2000 the ship has sailed the world's oceans.
 
Enjoy the Duyfken story which is still being told.

Fremantle Prison was built as a convict barracks in the 19th century and remained in continual use until 1991. The Prison was a place of hangings, floggings, dramatic convict escapes and prisoner riots. Inmates included imperial convicts, colonial prisoners, enemy aliens, prisoners of war and maximum-security detainees.

Visitors can step inside and do time with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of fascinating tours. Prison Day Tours highlight convict and prison life, daring escapes and colourful characters in tales laced with prison humour. Visitors with a spirit for adventure can descend 20 meters below the Prison to explore a one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels by foot and by boat on an underground Tunnels Tour or delve into the darker side of the Prison's history at night on a spooky Torchlight Tour.

Bookings are essential for Tunnels Tours and Torchlight Tours.

Four main stories emerge from the paintings. Bush Seeds – My Country relates to the harvesting of seeds used for making flour and damper, a staple food of traditional life. Seeds were valued and spread around watering places to encourage bountiful growth of native plants.

Bush Medicine Leaves refers to the plants harvested for traditional medicine practices, often to boil the leaves in water over the fire.

Water Dreaming relates to the critical knowledge of waterholes, including the Creation stories tied to those places and the way the water sites are linked together by the stories.

The Ovens was commissioned on the 18th May 1969. During its 26 years as an operational submarine with the Australian Navy, it has participated in a large number of exercises with both Australian and Allied forces throughout Asia and the Pacific. In 1986 Ovens became the first conventional submarine to fire the harpoon missile and followed up this success in 1987 with the sinking of the former HMAS Colok with a Mk 48 torpedo during a training exercise. Upon completion of service in 1997, Ovens was decommissioned and handed over to the WA Maritime Museum in 1998. It is still in the same condition as it was then, no equipment has been removed. It is now a WA Maritime Museum exhibit that serves as a living memorial to serving submariners and those who gave their lives whilst serving from Fremantle during World War II. Guided tours of the submarine depart every half hour from the Maritime Museum starting at 10:30am and running til 3:30pm. Entry charges apply.
