Your Shipwreck Adventure

Permanent exhibition

Recommended for all ages

Queensland Museum Tropics


Explore the marine life and history of a shipwreck in Your Shipwreck Adventure, a purpose-built interactive exhibition for young children.

Our maritime archaeology exhibition features a mysterious underwater setting of a Great Barrier Reef shipwreck with interactive games and activities designed to teach children about the importance of preserving historic shipwrecks and coral reefs.

Things to do:

  • Crawl through the funnel of the shipwreck to venture into an underwater world.
  • Take a diver's slate and data sheet to find the lost artifacts and learn what they were used for.
  • Discover the wildlife that live on the Great Barrier Reef and make shipwrecks their home.

Your Shipwreck Adventure is located within the Pandora Gallery. Experience the true story of one of the most significant shipwrecks in the Southern Hemisphere before embarking on your own adventure!
