Mick has always had a deep interest in Maritime history but I was more interested because my Grandfather was in the Navy during WWII. He served on the HMAS Australia & went to Japan only 3 months after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. The picture above is a model of the HMAS Australia that he served on.
We had loads of fun on the guns (pretending to shoot people on the bridge) & I just had to straddle the cannon while singing "If I could Turn Back Time".
Such an interesting place to visit. Loved it. The people who work there are super lovely & very passionate about preserving our heritage. They get very little funding from the government.
Highly recommended day out if you are interested in Australia's history.
