Maritime heritage organisations across the country contributed stories and images for inclusion in the exhibition.
The museum partnered with the Australian Maritime Museums Council and ran workshops to bring together staff and volunteers from diverse museums to develop and produce the final exhibit. Many host venues will display objects from their own historic collections in conjunction with the panel display.
The exhibit will tour Australia from 2018 -2020.
