HMAS Castlemaine (J244/M244/A248), named for the city of Castlemaine, Victoria, was one of 60 Bathurst-class corvettes constructed during World War II, and one of 36 initially crewed and commissioned solely by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN).You can plan Melbourne trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
Launched in 1941 and commissioned in 1942, Castlemaine operated during World War II in the waters of Australia, New Guinea, and Timor. She remained in service until 1945, when she was decommissioned into reserve and converted into an immobilised training ship. In 1973, Castlemaine was presented to the Maritime Trust of Australia for conversion to a museum ship. She is one of two surviving examples of the Bathurst class, the other being HMAS Whyalla.

This is a great historical museum that has been well maintained by a Maritime Trust of Australia local branch. It was open on the day I attended, ANZAC day, and is well worth the time if you are in the area. Its a World War Two corvette built in Melbourne, 1942. It has been docked at the Gem Pier Williamstown for a long period of time. There are public toilets near by
It was great, my son loved it, not too busy, friendly and helpful staff
