Tasmanian Connections

About

Tasmanian Connections is a permanent exhibition that features objects recovered from the wreck of Australia’s oldest merchant shipwreck, The Sydney Cove, including the large rudder and anchor from the ship, personal belongings of the crew and cargo.

You will also discover the Museum’s extensive dinosaur collection, featuring giant skeletons and life-sized models and the tragic story of the Tasmanian Tiger – a remarkable and misunderstood animal.

Tasmanian Connections installations include Transport: The trials and triumphs; Fauna: Animals of an island refuge; Dinosaurs: The extraordinary collection of the QVMAG; The Island’s Space in Time: A geological timeline; The JW Beattie Collection: A glimpse of Tasmania’s colonial history; and The Sydney Cove: Australia’s oldest merchant shipwreck.
