The Queensland Maritime Museum stands on the banks of the River Brisbane in Brisbane, between the South Bank Parklands and Kangaroo Point next to Goodwill Bridge. It is the largest maritime museum in Queensland, Australia.
The frigate shown in this image is the HMAS Diamantina, and she was designed as an anti-submarine vessel. The ship was named after the Diamantina River in Queensland and launched in 1944. In 1959, after reconstruction, the Diamantina served time as an ocean research vessel.
The sailing ship in this picture is the Penguin, a Torres Strait pearling lugger built in 1907 on Thursday Island and used for pearl shell fishing. The Penguin arrived in Brisbane carried on the HMAS Tobruk in 1982, and has undergone a complete and through restoration programme. She now stands on display next to the HMAS Diamantina.
