Sail-World.com : Waves of Migration launching at the National Maritime Museum
Waves of Migration launching at the National Maritime Museum


Jude Timms
Celebrate Australia Day at the National Maritime Museum where a dynamic light show exploring the history of migration to Australia and the compelling stories of those who’ve come across the seas will be the culmination of celebrations.

Launching on Australia Day and running after dark until mid February, Waves of Migration is a thought-provoking eight-minute animated projection on the museum’s iconic roof that weaves together Australia’s rich tapestry of migration.

The light show will be the finale of a packed day of activities at the museum making it a great value day out for families. To celebrate this special day, entry to the museum’s galleries will be free.

And for Australia Day only the museum is offering a special Australia Day Experience ticket for just $5 per person. This gives families the opportunity to step on board its Daring class destroyer HMAS Vampire and to spend a day at the museum joining in the Viking Adventures in its summer family attractions – the Vikings – Beyond the Legend exhibition, replica Viking longship and Vikings WetWorld.

Also on Australia Day there will be live entertainment - look out for our roving performers and inflatable maritime characters and there’ll also be a special Australia Day menu in Yots Café.

And as we head towards the evening the museum’s waterside areas will remain open until 8pm for families to enjoy live entertainment. Yots Café will be open serving an evening menu and drinks, and cover band The Blackbyrds will play their lively music between 4.30 – 7.30 pm

For those who would like to spend the day on the water there’s still the opportunity to join in all the action on Sydney Harbour on board the museum’s magnificent Endeavour replica which will be sailing out to watch the parade and taking part in the famous Tall Ship Race. Spaces on the Endeavour Australia Day sail are $250 each and include entertainment, morning tea and picnic lunch. For more information or to book call 9298 3777.

The Australian National Maritime Museum, at Darling Harbour, is a short walk from the city across Pyrmont Bridge. Or catch a Sydney Ferry to Pyrmont Bay or the Light Rail to Pyrmont. All enquiries phone (02) 9298 3777 or click here.
