Maritime Shipwreck Galleries ( Fremantle, Australia) Part 2


In my previous post (Part 1), I have already mentioned about Maritime Shipwreck Galleries and now the continuity. Mainly showcasing the pictures on the Broadhurst family, relics from under the sea and the Batavia ship has to be the star attraction. The ship was part of the Dutch East India fleet, wrecked on the WA coast in 1600s and portion of the ship has been rebuild from original timbers. Not to missed is the skeleton of one of the first Europeans in Australia before you purchased some souvenirs and exit from museum.

  2. Very nice clicks, Nava! Those artifacts bear the war time story like a scar! I liked the broken and lopsided ship shot! You know, when you talk about shipwrecks I remember the documentary I saw on the sinking of ship "Titanic" , it was unbelievably detail oriented and the rescue operation and other stuffs were mind-blowing too!!
