At 8:54pm on 10 February 1964 aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne (II) collided with HMAS Voyager (II). Voyager was sheared in two and quickly sunk. 81 sailors were lost.
Told through the voices of the sailors that lived, worked and died on this Daring-class ship, this exhibit reflects back on its tragic end on that fateful February night. Featuring a stunning 5-metre model of Voyager, media coverage of the disaster and medals of those who lost their lives, a visit to this exhibition is a must-see experience before exploring Voyager's sister ship HMAS Vampire in the museum's fleet.
