Dads and Carers for Free on Father’s Day

Celebrate Father’s Day with a trip to the South Australian Maritime Museum. Fathers and carers accompanied by a paying visitor this Father’s Day on Sunday 2 September will be admitted to the Museum free of charge.

Explore the life sized ketch and imagine the days of sail. Then marvel at sailors’ souvenirs and maritime crafts from Australia’s oldest nautical collection started at the Port in 1872. Also, be sure to visit the stunning exhibition Leviathan: An Astonishing History of Whales.

Take a stroll around the streets of Port Adelaide and imagine a nineteenth-century port with its grand customs house, telegraph office, shipping offices, chandlery and the Maritime Museum’s bond stores, lighthouse and steam tug Yelta.

The South Australian Maritime Museum and History Trust of South Australia acknowledges the First Nations peoples of South Australia, whose connection to country and living cultures began in time immemorial and continues to the present. We affirm our commitment to advancing reconciliation.
