Our Vision

Welcome to The Spring Bay Maritime & Discovery Centre, which is a catalyst for change in the Spring Bay Maria Coast region of Tasmania. The vision for this centre has come from the determination and commitment of local people, eager to celebrate and share the achievements and rich history of their area through a ‘must see’ visitor experience and in so doing – reversing the tide of economic decline which is threatening the region.

On display to the public are objects of historical significance or educational interest relating to Spring Bay history, especially as affecting the State of Tasmania. We will exhibit and provide access to the collection in a suitable place for the long term benefit of the community. We will also provide information and educational resources, and encourage research or enquiry into the history of Spring Bay and encourage the preservation of Spring Bay’s historical past and artefacts, both of European and Indigenous origins.
