Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village and Museum


At the end of The Great Ocean Road, just beyond the 12 Apostles, the picturesque seaside city of Warrnambool is home to Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum and Village.

Here lie the stories of hundreds of ships, their crewmen and passengers whose lives were claimed by the Shipwrecked Coast in the 19th Century. Stories passed on by the lucky few who survived the journey to start a new life in a foreign land, vowing never to set foot on a ship again.

Without the modern day comforts we take for granted today, their lives were challenging and tough as they relied on the ocean for resources and communication. Flagstaff Hill is a place to remember and experience the stories of these early battlers who laid the foundations for life as we know it today.
