At midday each day a cannon is fired, and watch out - its louder than you think!
Interactive, educational and truly memorable, the Maritime Museum is sure to be a hit with young and old alike.
“The highlight of the day was definitely the sail under the harbour bridge. Manned by volunteers who were the friendliest and most enthusiastic bunch yet. As visitors to New Zealand we felt like we had hit the jackpot.” – TATAustralia
