Seaworks volunteers come from all walks of life. The common element of the team is a mutual admiration and respect for preserving the significant history of the Williamstown, Melbourne and Victorian maritime precincts.

We have volunteers who have previously worked in the Williamstown dockyards, the Melbourne Harbour Trust, on boats and ships in various roles, or served in the Royal Australian Navy or Merchant Navy. Some volunteers simply want to give back to the community through service and enjoy meeting people and sharing a story or two. Many of our volunteers are retired, some are still engaged in work – but all are boating enthusiasts.

Volunteers participate in a range of roles including educating and engaging with visitors, restoring, repairing and preserving maritime memorabilia, artefacts and interactive models, organising and preparing exhibition pieces for display and conducting curatorial and research tasks as required.

The museum holds important collections from the Melbourne Harbor Trust as well as from individuals, companies and affiliated associations.
