War at Sea
Royal Australian Navy in WWI

The contribution of the Royal Australian Navy to the First World War, by a naval fleet formed less than a year before the outbreak of war, was significant, serving in all theatres of the war from the Pacific and Indian Oceans to the Mediterranean and North Seas. This story is now being told in a new exhibition at the Queensland Maritime Museum, War at Sea – the Navy in WWI, opening 30 October 2017 and running until April 2018.
