This is a picture of a ship model exposed. The information says
that the ship took two thousand hours to be built and the timber
used is spotted gum. It is exposed to allow people, tourists to
take photos of the ship model and in return donate money for the
children’s hospital. The collection of the Ship Models of the
Sydney Heritage Fleet has a collection of over fifty models as
freighters, passenger liners, America’s cup yachts and bottle
ships. There is around ten historical vessels among the
collection. As larger models there are the Oriana, Northern Star
and Southern Cross which were passenger liners, Iron Chief and
Port Brisbane. If you are a fan ship models you can have a visit
at the Sydney Heritage fleet, Wharf 7 at Pirrama Road Pyrmont.
Those who build and restore the models are fleet volunteers. In
1965 was founded the Lady Hopetoun and Jackson Museum and became
later on the Sydney Maritime Museum Limited. It was only in 1998
that it has too the name of Sydney Heritage Fleet.
