Today we're visiting
The Queensland Maritime Museum
They got some pretty cool stuff in their gallery
You'll need to visit early to see everything

so that they can sink in water

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
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
We broke into the command center
and pretended to radio
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
