Are you looking for that special place for your party, seminar, meeting or wedding? Then look no further.

The Maritime Museum is located on the Honeysuckle Foreshore, and provides all-round outdoor spaces and sweeping views of the harbour.

Make the most of this beautiful location by booking your next function at the Maritime Museum. We offer a choice of unique spaces to suit your function’s presentational, seating and technical requirements, including flexible and unique spaces.

Hamilton railway station is not far away, and public buses run directly from the station to Hunter Street. Easy access from Hunter Street across the existing Civic Train Station overhead bridge brings you directly to the Honeysuckle Foreshore.

There are plenty of car parks (metered during business hours) within three minutes walk from the Museum.

A number of excellent restaurants and hotels can be found through the Honeysuckle Foreshore as well as adjoining areas.
