Australia: Maritime Museum Opens New Attraction

The Australian National Maritime Museum opened its new ‘Action Stations’ attraction on Sunday, November 8, in Darling Harbour, Sydney, Australia.

Austal, Australia’s defence contractor, is supporting this new USD 8,5 million attraction at the Maritime Museum. The Action Stations is located in an all-new waterfront pavilion and offers a look into the history of the Oberon-class submarine HMAS Onslow, the Daring-class destroyer HMAS Vampire and the Attack-class patrol boat HMAS Advance, which are permanently docked at the Museum.

Announcing the partnership with the Australian National Maritime Museum, Austal Chief Executive Officer Andrew Bellamy said the company was very proud to have played a significant role in Australia’s naval shipbuilding industry over the past 17 years, through the delivery of the Bay, Armidale and Cape Class Patrol Boats.
