Seaworks Foundation is a community-based not-for-profit entity established to preserve and celebrate Victoria’s maritime history.
It operates out of the Seaworks maritime precinct, a 2.74 hectare site on Williamstown’s waterfront comprising a number of heritage buildings, including the oldest surviving morgue in Victoria and 1880s sheds relocated from North Wharf up the Yarra River in the 1920s.
Seaworks Foundation has been the custodian of the site since 2006 and runs a maritime museum in one building.
Seaworks provides spaces for maritime, recreational, educational, artistic and commercial activities, annually attracting more than 150,000 visitors from across Victoria, interstate and overseas. It has been a port of call for tall ships and other historic vessels for nearly two decades.
