On 22 March the Prime Minister announced additional measures to slow down the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). These include the enforcement of social distancing by closing non-essential social venues as from midday 23 March. Against this background, the Maritime Museum of Townsville is closed until further notice in order to protect our community and our Museum staff and volunteers. Once it is safe, the Museum will be reopened and we are looking forward to welcoming you back on board when better times have arrived.
We will be enhancing our website in order to allow for better online access to our exhibitions and collections during this period.
