Today the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM) joins the ranks of Australia’s peak industry-led cultural tourism organisation - Cultural Attractions of Australia (CAOA).
The Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney’s Darling Harbour’s permanent and temporary exhibitions explore and represent Australia’s links to the sea, from Indigenous Australians’ deep connection to the ocean, early exploration, immigration, commerce, defence, adventure, sport, play and identity. Docked at its wharves, the ANMM has one of the largest floating historical vessel collections in the world and inside, a permanent collection of over 140,000 items.
