The Australian National Maritime Museum unveils plans for new Warships Pavilion

The Australian National Maritime Museum unveils plans for new Warships Pavilion
February 24, 2015

The Australian National Maritime Museum has unveiled its state-of-the-art Warships Pavilion at the 2015 Asia-Pacific Incentives and Meetings Expo (AIME).

The all-new, $11 million waterfront attraction on Darling Harbour, will host three world-class function spaces, including an outdoor rooftop, a VIP terrace and a cinematic experience.

Due for completion in September 2015, the addition of the Warships Pavilion will increase the Australian National Maritime Museum venue portfolio to eleven, aptly positioning it as Sydney’s ultimate waterfront venue precinct.

Developed to mark the centenary of World War I and commemorate over 100 years of service by the Royal Australian Navy, the Warships Pavilion is positioned alongside ex-Navy destroyer HMAS Vampire and submarine HMAS Onslow and is just one of the museum’s unique venues servicing the events industry.

From corporate events, cocktail functions, product activations to weddings and ceremonies, the Australian National Maritime Museum is the only event destination to offer a multitude of uniquely Australian experiences right on Sydney Harbour.

Deanna Varga, Director Commercial & Visitor Services at the Australian National Maritime Museum, introduced the museum’s waterfront event precinct, and officially announced the new venue spaces as part of the Warships Pavilion at AIME today (24th February).

Varga explained “we’re very excited to unveil the latest addition to our venue portfolio.

“The construction of the Pavilion is a key first step in the realisation of the museum’s master plan for the future and shows how quickly we are evolving alongside our neighbours in Darling Harbour.

“An event at the Warships Pavilion, utilising all three unique spaces for pre, during and post event activities, provides guests with a truly immersive harbour experience.”
