Located in Northern Tasmania in historic George Town, the centre shares the journey of explorers Bass and Flinders who sailed the sloop Norfolk right into the Tamar River in 1798.

The Centre is now home to the replica sloop Norfolk, together with the numerous other boats and historical artefacts that continue to share marvellous, maritime stories and seafaring adventures.

Offering both self-paced museum walks and enchanting guided tours with an interactive Norfolk experience, the Bass and Flinders Maritime Museum welcomes you to embark on a truly memorable maritime journey.

Honestly wasn't expecting much when we went in but were blown away by the friendliness of the staff and their excitement to share the story of Bass and Flinders with us. There's a full sized replica of the Norfolk ship inside (You have no idea looking on the outside of the centre) which you can go in and explore and a few other things to look at. I highly recommend going to the Bass and Flinders centre if you're up in George Town, it was a favorite of mine on the trip and I'd go back again.
