2019 Ocean Talks Series

The psychology of sharks, the fastest man on water, and chasing sea monsters – we’re launching a dynamic new talk series.

For the love of oceans! 

Our exciting new monthly talk series Ocean Talks, features a range of fascinating marine experts, scientists, authors, filmmakers and adventurers who will challenge everything you know about the depths (and shallows) of earth’s oceans. 

Our oceans are at a critical point in history, and the maritime museum has never had a more vital role in marine conservation, exploration and sharing the wonder and mystery of our oceans. Our new series of talks offers a unique experience to immerse yourself in the cutting edge of marine science, provocative art, and controversial thought leadership – all up close and personal.

Ocean Talks tickets include light refreshments and a chance to chat with the speakers in the Tasman Light Gallery after the event, plus exclusive access to corresponding exhibitions and displays in the hour before the talks (5-6pm).
