……. Collection Management, Vessel Management and Interpretation Plans

We also congratulate the Townsville Maritime Museum, who were awarded $5,000 towards their project Professional support of the development of vessel management plan and vessel interpretation plan/program for HMAS Townsville (II). 

The HMAS Townsville, a Fremantle-Class patrol boat with her crest ‘Bold and Ready’, is currently located at her namesake, the Port of Townsville, where she is undergoing preservation treatment. 

Until a decision is made about her final berthing and display arrangements, this project is planned to ensure ongoing vessel conservation management and also to prepare the vessel for public display.
