Free Entry for ex-ADF Members to Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney


Complimentary Entry to
Australian National Maritime Museum
Darling Harbour, Sydney NSW

The Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC) has partnered with the Australian National Maritime Museum to provide complimentary free access to Australia’s Maritime Museum in Sydney for all Defence Force serving members, veterans, and current cadets.


Located in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, this must-see museum provides the opportunity to explore Australia’s rich maritime heritage, including the history of the Royal Australian Navy and the experiences of past servicemen and women, plus the museum’s exciting program of exhibitions and events.

Complimentary entry includes access to the Museum’s Action Stationsexperience, which tells the story of life in the Royal Australian Navy, as well as the opportunity to climb aboard ex-Navy destroyer HMAS Vampire and submarine HMAS Onslow.

Visitors can explore all areas of the unique indoor-outdoor museum, see many historic fleets and exhibitions—including the acclaimed Gapu-Monuk Saltwater exhibition of stunning bark paintings by the Yolnu people of north-east Arnhem Land, and the immersive James Cameron – Challenging the Deep exhibition.

“There is no doubt that the history of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) and the men and women who serve, is an important, fascinating and ongoing chapter in Australia’s maritime story. It’s an area we have researched, collected and shared with our visitors since opening in 1991. I’m particularly delighted that, with the generous support of CSC, all Australian Defence Force members, cadets and veterans will have even greater access to the museum, our collections and importantly their history,” said museum director Kevin Sumption PSM.

“CSC greatly values and appreciates the commitment and loyal service of our veterans, serving members of the Army, Navy and Air Force, and cadets, and providing free entry to the Museum is one way for us to show our gratitude and thanks,” said CSC’s Corporate Affairs Manager, Damon Whittock


To access the offer, current Australian Defence Force members, current cadets and veterans simply need to show a valid ADF ID card, DVA-issued card or service medals to the museum’s front of house team, or arrive in uniform, and they will receive free entry.

This offer runs until September 2020.
