Check out the old school bath tub

We were walking aimlessly
when we arrived at Kangaroo Point Park

You know its summer

Today we're visiting
The Queensland Maritime Museum
concession $7

They got some pretty cool stuff in their gallery
You'll need to visit early to see everything

Ahoy! Captain Cook's ship!

Black Slaves

Over a Barrel

Cool shit! Reminds me of Tintin's Adventures

They used these steel/iron weights
so that they can sink in water

Captain Haddock's Rum

They had these bibles in ships

Cutlery Set made of mother of pearl


Yep.. this is where Jack and Rose "flew"
in Titanic the movie

Some sampan/canoe that is carved from a single tree
and strings made with human hair

Diesel engine for a ship

Duyfken (1606)
its a small Dutch merchant ship that sailed from Holland to Indonesia
during the Spice Trade era
You can say its kinda like Australia's Christopher Columbus and Santa Maria

Some of the parts are being re-painted/re-constructed
These are the Falcon stands

Ok.. this mini Duyfken (Little Dove) tour
costs an additional $3
but its totally worth it!
Its like the best part of the maritime museum

This is where they cook and stuff

Dutch maps were the best in their time
if you can see, there're 2 aboriginal message sticks on top
these are like the "passports" to aboriginal territories

Someone's watching you.. Always!

Some rum and stuff.. I guess..

Axe Gang 斧头帮?

Nutmeg was a rare commodity
One piece of nutmeg could buy you a big house with 2 servants

An enchanted cursed mask from Indonesia

One of the refurbished Falcon or Falconet

Pretty wicked stuff that can fire
1 pound round shots and grapeshots

The world last river class frigate
carried Japanese high command Lt. Gen Kanda and Vice Admiral Baron Samejima to surrender at Torokina during WWII
Hiding behind is the red CLS 2 Carpentaria
sorta like a mobile lighthouse vessel

Anti-submarine torpedo

We broke into the command center
and pretended to radio

ST Forceful
ocean-going tugboat since 1926
it uses a steam engine kinda like a locomotive

one of the smallest boats to sail across Pacific Ocean
confiscated from Howard Wayne Smith
due to his breach of tourist visa
