For our schools!

The Centre and the Julie Burgess ketch provide a learning environment for all age groups.  If you would like to include the Bass Strait Maritime Centre in your learning programme for the year please contact the Centre Coordinator on info@bassstraitmc.com.au or  (03) 6424 7100 to discuss your requirements and make a booking

Themes at the Centre include:

What’s the seabed like?
Did John Johnstone really walk from across Bass Strait on the seabed?
Is the Bass Strait Cascade the largest waterfall on earth?
What was a ‘well’ doing in the middle of the Julie Burgess ketch? 
Where is the land border between Victoria and Tasmania?

The answers to these and many more questions about the stretch of water that both divides and connects Tasmania and mainland Australia can be discovered in the Bass Strait Maritime Centre, Devonport.
