  • We had a great time here! Shout out to all the volunteers in all the ships/boats/sub. They are all very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. I love visiting the submarine. I felt a little claustrophobic when I first climbed down into the sub but inside there's fan and air circulation is good. They also limit the number of people entering so that really helps as well. The other ships are also very good and it really worth taking time listening to the volunteers. Note: don't lose the map that you get from the ticket counter as it's also used as proof of payment. They put entrance date stamp on it. You need to show it when you visit the ships.
  • for $25 admission (great to use NSW Discover voucher) it's an excellent place. make sure you do the warship & submarine first as last entries there are 3pm and there can be a queue. easily use 2-3 hrs between the ships, and the many excellent displays inside. and don't forget that you can loop around the waterside to the immigration wall.
