Your generous donations directly help us preserve and present Australia’s Maritime Heritage. 


After a challenging few years due to the pandemic we need your assistance now more than ever.


Every gift makes a difference. All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.



Please support this year’s end-of-financial-year campaign which is raising funds for two programs:


·       to help preserve and operate our historic fleet of sailing and working craft


·       to bring a rare 1924 watercolour of the Sydney Harbour Bridge home to the museum for its 90th birthday.



You could also join the SY Ena Sanctum and support the conservation of this important 120-year-old steam yacht.




You can donate online or via the methods listed below:
