Fremantle’s Secret Submarine Base Floor Talk

Tue 18 Apr 2017Thu 1 Jun 2017


WA Maritime Museum

Join WA Museum Volunteers as they lead special floor talks discussing Fremantle’s secret submarine base.

During World War II Fremantle acted as an important international submarine base, hosting more than 170 Allied submarines. Whilst some of the submarines were Dutch and British, the majority were American. Due to the secrecy surrounding its operation, its existence was little known at the time.

Included is the opportunity to view fascinating photographs of the Allied submarines in Fremantle.

Floor talks run every Tuesday and Thursday until 1 June.

Talks are free with Museum entry and run from 11am – 11.30am.

Visitors are welcome to explore the rest of the Museum at the conclusion of the talk.

Bookings are required and can be made by emailing or by calling 1300 134 081.
