Located in Northern Tasmania in historic George Town, the centre shares the journey of explorers Bass and Flinders who sailed the sloop Norfolk right into the Tamar River in 1798.

The Centre is now home to the replica sloop Norfolk, together with the numerous other boats and historical artefacts that continue to share marvellous, maritime stories and seafaring adventures.

Offering both self-paced museum walks and enchanting guided tours with an interactive Norfolk experience, the Bass and Flinders Centre welcomes you to embark on a truly memorable maritime journey.
