It gives me great pleasure to present to you, for the last tim e as Chairman of this truly outstanding institution, the Australian N ational M aritim e M useum ’s Annual Report 1 July 2000 to 30 June 2001. It has been a privilege to serve as Chairman of the Museum since 1995, to work with the dedicated Council members, staff and volunteers who have made it such a successful cultural and heritage resource for the nation, and to offer my own com m itm ent. Since my first appointm ent to Council 11 years ago the Museum has made impressive achievements as a young institution. The last few years have been simply spectacular, w ith the development of the W h arf 7 M aritime Heritage Centre, the addition of major attractions such as the submarine Onslow and the visit of the great replica Batavia. The Sydney 2000 Olympics brought financial rewards and increased profile. As I come to the end of my appointm ent as Chairman, the Museum is planning its 10th birthday celebrations which will be a focus for both past achievements and future challenges. These challenges will include maintaining and improving upon the record levels of visitation and public support w ith which the Museum entered the new Millennium. I feel confident that the Museum's human resources, government, corporate and private support, and its strategic partnerships, will enable it to reach new peaks. I welcome this opportunity to thank all who have made my tenure as Chariman such a rewarding experience. And I would like to welcome the M useum ’s new Chairman, Mark Bethwaite, and wish him as satisfying and stim ulating a tim e in the position as I have enjoyed.

Chairman

Celebrating the sesquicentenary of the first Australian gold rush, hot on the heels of gold discoveries in California, an exhibition in the USA Gallery delved into the flow of people, goods and ideas across the Pacific Ocean. One feature was the re-creation of passenger quarters on a mid-19th century ship of the type that shuttled diggers between the two continents.

Among the visitors: two of the world’s finest replica historical ships, HMB Endeavour next to warships on the South Wharf, and Dutch East Indiaman Batavia near the Cape Bowling Green lighthouse. Next to Batavia is the popular Olympic party venue sponsored by the Dutch Olympic Committee, the Holland Heineken House beergarden where revellers flocked to celebrate Olympic victories. At far right, moored next to the Museum's Wharf 7 Maritime Heritage Centre, is the bows of a Tasmanian wave-piercing catamaran ferry.

A Year to Remember A u stra lia will lon g ch erish the past yea r as one of th e best ever, with the s p e cta cu la r s u cce ss of th e S yd n e y 200 0 O lym p ic G am es.

the period, we moved early to lease our major spaces to big O lympic clients. They included AusTrade’s Business Club Australia, showcasing Australian export, the United International Pentathlon Union and the Japanese O lympic Committee.

For the Australian N ational M aritime Museum the period of the 2000 Games stands as the highlight of a year that had many other successes and achievements as well. For us it was a record year, and it’s one that our dedicated staff, volunteers, Members and Council won’t soon forget. And as it ended we said farewell to our Chairman since 1995, Kay Cottee AO, who completes her term in office w ith our heartfelt thanks for her determ ined and enthusiastic support.

The result was over 150,000 visitors in those two weeks in September, most of them drawn by our Olympic clients. As well as the financial bonus which helps us to improve our public facilities, lasting benefits include increased visibility at home and overseas and exposure to new markets for both visitors and functions.

It w asn’t just the Olympics that achieved our all-time record visitation of 464,188 people for the year and record self-generated revenue of $7,284 million gross

It wasn’t just the Olympics that achieved our all-time record visitation of 464,188 people for the year and record self-generated revenue of $7,284 million gross - although that certainly helped. We had no less than 15 temporary exhibitions through our galleries in 2000-2001, some of them charting major milestones in the nation’s life. The Centenary of Federation exhibition Smugglers —Customs & Contraband 1901-2001 offered fascination and drama. GoldRush! The Australian Experience marked the sesquicentenary of the Australian gold rush as once again our USA Gallery explored the experiences we share with the United States.

One unexpected bonus during the Olympic period was to find we were hosting Sydney’s hottest O lympic party spot! This was at Holland H eineken House, the D utch O lympic C om m ittee’s m edia and hospitality centre which occupied an imported, made-tomeasure two-story marquee covering our entire parking lot. Enthusiastic crowds came to celebrate at the D utch beer garden on our north wharf, set among pots of tulips beside the towering replica of the 17th-century D utch East Indiam an Batavia. W hen the popular D utch swimmers won gold medals the celebrations w ent on till 3.00 am.

Achievement on all Fronts

The spectacular replica of Batavia, the Dutch East Indiaman wrecked off W estern Australia in 1629, continued to draw crowds during its visit from The Netherlands. An associated exhibition about two 17th-century D utch explorers in Australia reunited the famous H artogh and de Vlamingh pewter plates. These very im portant items were lent to us by The Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, and the W estern Australian Museum. Then continuing the D utch theme we hosted a visit by the acclaimed Australian-built replica Duyfken shortly after it re-enacted the first recorded European encounter w ith Australia in 1606.


Director’s Overview Vaw3'1"'

Just some of our 336 Museum volunteers, at a ‘farewell to Batavia' barbeque. Many were Visitor Guides during the 15-month visit of The Netherlands’ replica of the famous Dutch East Indiaman. The Guides studied the saga of Batavia's shipwreck and mutiny off Western Australia in 1629, and much more about 17th-century Dutch shipbuilding and seamanship, to relate to Museum visitors as they explored the replica. J Mellefont/ANMM photograph

Sydney H eritage Fleet’s 19th-century barque James Craig which moors at our W harf 7 M aritim e H eritage Centre got under sail at last, w ith the successful com pletion of its epic, 30-year restoration, and was included among our visitor attractions. The Endeavour replica returned to its home port at our wharves, for the O lym pic Games period. As the original Duyfken was built in 1598, we have been able to offer our 2000-2001 visitors the unique experience of stepping aboard ships from the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries! N ot to m ention the 20th-century fleet of round-theworld racing yachts of the BT Global Challenge which made the M useum their Sydney base once again.

The wide range of imaginative programs that add activity and interpretive depth to our displays just seems to keep growing. Batavia stim ulated a year-long round of events that included spice festivals and banquets, music and musketry. As the M useum’s reputation for these sorts of activities grows, more come our way. We were pleased to welcome the organisers of Bloomsday, the annual celebration of James Joyce’s Ulysses, when they chose the Museum as their venue this year. W ith the greatest sea story of all, the Odyssey, as the novel’s central motif, the Museum was a great setting for the day of readings and it was my pleasure to welcome a new Bloomsday event, The Ulysses Challenge yacht race.


Director’s Overview Stimulating and creative activities for schools saw particular development and innovation. The success of interpretive museum theatre as a means of adding value to school visits was clear when a specially-commissioned play The Prospectors, developed for the Gold Rush! exhibition, was booked out and went into extended seasons. And for adults a series of on-the-water Cruise Forums brought prominent guest speakers to workshop environmental and usage issues on Sydney Harbour.

Year In Review

Again the generous support of sponsors has enabled us to achieve more. To m ention a few, the N ational Council for the Centenary of Federation made possible the Smugglers exhibition, and an associated book. D elta Gold and The Australian Gold Council supported Gold Rush! A nd through the generous assistance of Stephen G rant of the G rantPirrie Gallery we have been able to make one of our largest and most significant acquisitions ever. This was the Saltwater Country collection of 77 Yirrkala bark paintings, a unique artistic expression of indigenous sea-rights, which we hope to tour to overseas venues.

Dr Peter Sigmond, Head of Dutch History at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, accompanied Dirck Hartogh’s pewter plate to Sydney for display in our galleries. The fragile relic is now sealed in an inert gas to retard its deterioration. Pick the smugglers. Museum staff modelled for a lifesized exhibition graphic in our Centenary of Federation exhibition Smugglers - Customs & Contraband 19012001 developed in conjunction with its sponsor the Australian Customs Service.


Director’s Overview Reaching Out As a national organisation the Museum seeks opportunities to foster understanding of the nation’s m aritim e heritage Australia-wide, providing leadership and assistance. Some of these activities have contributed to A N M M ’s international profile as well. Travelling exhibitions are one way in which this is achieved. O ur travelling exhibitions were seen by 72,627 people. They included Ocean Planet from the USA’s Smithsonian Touring Exhibition Service, one of a growing list of exhibitions which we have im ported for display at our galleries, and then managed on tour to other states and countries. Ocean Planet com pleted its two-year A ustralian tour visiting the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, W ellington, and Antarctic Adventure, H obart. We developed a compact touring version of our major Centenary of Federation exhibition Smugglers — Customs & Contraband 1901-2001 which began its tour at the South Australian M aritime Museum, Port Adelaide. Titanic - an interactive exploration is an interactive CD-i exhibition booth developed w ith sponsor Philips. It finished its successful three-year tour at the M aritim e Museum of Tasmania. The M aritim e Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme (MMAPSS), established in 1995-96, awarded a sixth round of grants totalling $30,000 to 11 institutions around the nation. The scheme is jointly funded by ANM M and the Commonwealth G overnm ent’s D istributed National Collection Program to support collection m anagement, conservation and exhibition proposals from museums and other local organisations. MMAPSS is adm inistered by Museum staff. MMAPSS has expanded to include a new Internship Program. Staff or volunteers in regional m aritim e or other museums, or institutions holding a m aritim e collection, were invited to develop professional skills by

working w ith different parts of this Museum, according to their area of interest. Placements are up to four weeks w ith a grant of up to $2,000 to assist w ith accommodation and/or other expenses. Fifteen quality applications were received. O ur first interns were Marea Buist from the Port of Yamba Historical Society Museum, working w ith our M arketing and Visitor Programs sections, and Richard Edmonds from the Geelong Naval & M aritim e Museum studying aspects of Museum collection management. The Museum hosted the 2000 Conference of the Australian M aritim e Museums Council, which we played a leading role in creating over ten years ago. This was a three-day event canvassing issues for m aritim e museums and heritage organisations in the new m illennium . The Conference launched the new Guide to Maritime Museums in Australia, a state-by-state com pilation of museums, collections and resources affiliated w ith AMMC that was prepared by our own staff. 7


Director’s Overview

MB*.:*r

O ur museum professionals offer expertise freely to many organisations and individuals. Staff assisted more than 4,300 researchrelated enquiries this year. Those helping in this way include our m aritim e archaeologists, conservators, curators and the research librarians from our Vaughan Evans Library. O ur expertise in the management of heritage vessels and major objects provides regular assistance to others, too. An ANM M team of highly-qualified and experienced divers - two m aritim e archaeologists and a conservator —returned to the USA for a second season searching for the remains of James Cook’s Endeavour believed sunk in N ew port, Rhode Island in 1788. They were advising and assisting the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project. This exciting project has been supported by the Commonwealth Government and corporate sponsors, and generates great public and media interest.

Organisational Developments and Outlook You will see in our financial statem ents for the year an astounding net surplus in excess of $62 million. O ur net assets have more than doubled during the same period. This is largely due to an extraordinary gain recognised on the transfer of ownership of the A N M M ’s primary exhibition centre building from the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia to the Museum at its net book value on 1 July 2000. This has been part of the much-welcomed reforms of Government financial and accounting procedures which are enabling us to budget for and undertake capital improvements, and to make provision for the depreciation of major assets. Among the capital works for the year was completion of the South W harf redevelopment, where a spacious viewing deck was erected alongside the destroyer

Director’s and we are pleased w ith the very spacious and stylish architecture of both areas. Since October 2000 one of our major galleries has been closed to the public as the Governm ent decision to return Australia II to the W estern Australian M aritime Museum m eant dism antling the Leisure exhibition, where the America’s Cup winner had been a centrepiece since the Museum opened. The 12-Metre yacht was out of the building and handed over to its new custodians in December. The gallery remained closed for the rest of the year as the space is being redeveloped as a completely new exhibition about water-borne adventure, sport and play. Looking at our building needs in the future, we are working w ith the architect of the main Museum building, Cox Richardson, on ways to make it work even better. Some of the prelim inary ideas are very exciting and am bitious, and include improving the linkage between the Museum and the W harf 7 M aritim e H eritage Centre. These will be major capital works w ith very substantial implications for budgeting and long-term strategic planning. The future of maintenance facilities for our historic fleet, presently located across the harbour at Berrys Bay in the former Commonwealth Q uarantine vessel base th a t’s now controlled by the State Government, is also being assessed. W hile this is a lovely heritage site it does not provide all the facilities required and exposes us to increasing rents. We are assessing a num ber of options.

When We Turn Ten W ithout doubt the extremely successful year we have just posted, which followed a very strong performance in 1999-2000, presents challenges to the organisation in terms of m atching the strong figures generated. We see opportunities as the Museum approaches its first decade of being open to the public as a national cultural institution. The public will

Among the attractions to be marketed under the 10th birthday banner will be the opening of Watermarks —adventure, sport & play, the largest redevelopment of gallery space undertaken to date. Com plem enting it will be Play. Kids + Water = Fun, our major summ er attraction for families. Vasa 1628: strange fate of a King’s warship, a travelling exhibition we’ve developed w ith Sweden’s Vasa Museum, will bring the story of the w orld’s most spectacular shipwreck to Australia. And we will stage the first Food at Sea Festival, exploring food, drink and life at sea from 1500 to 2000 in a multifaceted program of dem onstrations, lectures, gastronomy and an exhibition about food preservation.

The Company dominated international trade across half the globe for 200 years. Rare exhibits borrowed from major D utch museums helped trace the V O C’s history, expansion and influence from its establishm ent in 1602 to its end in 1799-

The capricious sea w ith its infinite moods has always presented challenges for photographers. From one of the finest US collections came images spanning 130 years including angry seas, wrecks, welcoming ports, sailing races and superb hum an studies.

Intended to ‘sell’ A ustralia as an attractive tourist destination, these beautifully designed, colourful and nostalgic posters gave a unique insight into how Australia was depicted to the world (and to itself) over the course of the 20th century.

The gold rushes 150 years ago created links between Australia and California. Both saw rapid grow th in wealth and population, and far-reaching social changes. In the Australian colonies this included early republicanism dramatised by the Eureka uprising.

The renovated foyer provides a more welcoming and more efficient first encounter for visitors, function guests and all who use the Museum. Its total redesign drew upon lessons learned during the Museum's first decade of operation, to improve flow, service delivery and information. Enhancements included airlock revolving entrances to reduce the exchange of air, maintaining a better environment for protecting the objects on display.

Program Summary C u s to m e r s e rv ic e Customer Service was enhanced by providing outstanding attractions detailed elsewhere; by capital works to improve visitor amenity; by enhancing revenue, m inim ising expenses and financial management; by human resource management; and by improvements to staff productivity through communications and inform ation infrastructure. Performance indicators include revenue and visitor numbers, along w ith the new indicator ‘Interactions’ (table over page). This is a single outcome against expenditure which goes beyond the traditional gate count to tally additional ways in which the Museum delivers services. The M useum ’s Customer Service Charter appears as Appendix 19V is ito r a m e n itie s These improved w ith completion of key capital works and refurbishments. A new structure on the South W harf offers an elevated viewing deck beside the destroyer Vampire and an extra function location taking full advantage of the spectacular harbourside location and CBD views. Beneath it are lockers and restroom facilities for visitors as well as an additional retail outlet. The main foyer’s extensive renovation improves visitor ticketing and orientation, particularly in peak periods, and works better as a reception area for functions. Renovations to the reception entrance to the Museum building’s office area, which includes executive offices and board room, enhances its profile to visitors. The S tore A djoining the main foyer, The Store was redesigned as part of the renovations. This has opened it up, improved lighting and merchandise display and customer flow.

Reconfigured entrances provide the option for The Store to trade outside Museum hours. D uring the construction period dow n-tim e The Store was relocated to a small space at the temporary visitor entrance next to the Peter Doyle Learning Centre. As revenue tables on the following page indicate, this impacted on turnover which has been in grow th since the Museum took over management from the former leaseholder. Staff continued to source improved merchandise lines, develop Museum product and build distribution links to other related merchandise outlets. They added on­ line ordering to their phone, mail and email order service. V is ito r S e rv ic e s Front of House and Security staff had their busiest periods ever thanks to the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Staff worked successfully w ith official security agencies from well before the Olympics and performed well during the event. The popularity of the Heineken beer garden already noted in the Overview saw over 3,000 people partying there in any 24hour period and an overall consumption of 250,000 glasses of the D utch beer, unusual for m ost museums. The tolerant and happy O lympic mood prevailed and there were no incidents despite one or two security alarms. New staff and contractors at the museum are undergoing Customer Service Training conducted regularly by in-house facilitators. A new perm anent position of Assistant Customer Service Manager was created to improve management of Front of House and Security functions. We continue to monitor and respond to visitor feedback as a following table shows. Foyer renovations disrupted feedback systems and led to this year’s reduction in visitor comments. 19


Venue hire and catering

C o m m u n ica tio n s and Inform ation

The program provided increased revenue from the Olympic-period clients, although this has been spread over previous years as well in the form of deposits and advances. The Olympic period also brought casual clients, such as the Norwegian O lympic Com m ittee which organised a party for its W om en’s Soccer Team. The high standard of service provided to our customers is indicated by the level of repeat business from corporate and private clients. The M useum’s profile and image benefit from its exposure to people attending its venues, both during the Olympics and during normal trade through the many government and business clients’ product launches, seminars and meetings. Closure of the Museum foyer from January to May, however, restricted the num ber of functions during the period and resulted in a dow nturn in non-Olympic turnover.

The Museum addressed the Government OnLine program, com pleting three online surveys, preparing an agency online action plan and meeting the m inim um requirements of the O nline Inform ation Service obligations. Com puter network enhancement continued w ith replacement of the Finance file server and upgrading data cabling. We implemented BorderManager, CyberPatrol and MailMarshal software to manage use of internet and email facilities. A new desktop adm inistration system, Novell Zen Works, provides a uniform corporate desktop environm ent w ith the capacity to remotely roll-out software applications and upgrades. Records M anagement included preservation copying and classifying the M useum’s oral history tapes and videotapes; those relating to adm inistrative functions have been completed.

Program Summary V ib ra n t m aritim e h eritage The diversity of ways in which the Museum interprets Australia’s maritime past and present - with exhibitions, theatre, festivals, seminars, lectures, tours, workshops, demonstrations, classes, food and musical events, vessel sleepovers, activities afloat and publications continued to grow during the year. To foster this diversity any staff member can propose new programs, and the Museum appoints project coordinators from many different sections. Product and program development involves curators, designers, preparators, conservators and registrars, event coordinators, education officers, Fleet staff, technicians and technologists, librarians, marketers, publicists, publishers, photographers, volunteers and virtually everyone in the organisation. Temporary and travelling exhibitions and visiting vessels for the year are listed in detail in Section 1 of this report. Public programs and activities, lectures and publications appear in Appendixes. Tables on the following pages indicate the extent of educational programs for teachers and students. E xh ib itio n d e v e lo p m e n ts As well as m ounting the exhibitions described in Section 1, staff worked on the complete redevelopment of the M useum’s largest themed exhibition, Leisure. Its centrepiece since the M useum’s opening in 1991, the America’s Cup w inning 12-Metre yacht Australia II, had been promised to W estern Australia in 1996 by its owner the Commonwealth Government. Hoardings went up around the Leisure gallery in October, its exhibitions were dism antled and the yacht was unrigged and removed. It was handed over to the W estern Australian M aritime Museum on schedule in December. W ork commenced on refitting the gallery for a new exhibition Watermarks - adventure, sport and

play, scheduled for com pletion in late 2001. To partly compensate for having such a large part of our gallery space unavailable to the public, viewing portholes were provided in the hoardings to allow visitors to view the removal of Australia II and later to watch installation of new exhibits such as Blackmores First Lady, the yacht in which Kay Cottee made her record-breaking solo circumnavigation in 1987-88. E xp lo rin g B a ta via The visiting reproduction of the D utch East Indiam an Batavia, wrecked off W estern A ustralia in 1629, attracted enormous attention and inspired a host of interpretive activities. The Batavia Rijstafel Banquet was a theatrical evening of food and history presented by prom inent chef and gastronome Carol Selva Rajah. Its focus was the Spice Trade and included music and cuisine from the East Indies. These themes were pursued further in the weekend-long Batavia D utch East Indies Marketplace involving the Indonesian community, more food, performance, art and crafts. Spice workshops hosted by ‘spice m aster’ Ian H em phill explored the secrets and uses of East Indies spices, and Batavia lace making dem onstrations by the Australian Lace G uild included replicas of 350-year-old lace fragments and bobbins found on the shipwreck. Historic re-enactments by the Pike and M usket society brought Batavia’s 17thcentury soldiers and civilians to life w ith m ilitary manoeuvres and musketry, song and dance. Activities for children included Rat Tracks, a discovery trail around Batavia searching for (toy!) rats before they could eat all the spice cargo.


P e rfo rm a n ce and c re a tivity Performance and storytelling in the museum environment allow us to interpret complex ideas, by engaging the senses and emotions to promote learning. Three original, entertaining family theatre programs were commissioned and presented, each seen by over 10,000 visitors. Endeavour Recruits played during the Endeavour replica’s return. Smugglers in Space accompanied the Centenary of Federation exhibition Smugglers —Customs & Contraband 1901 -2001. The Prospectors focused on the Gold Rush! exhibition. Its strong curriculum relevance led to repeat seasons to meet school demand. Staff continued developing the popular children’s programs which increase the Museum’s family appeal, particularly at weekends and school holidays, and target markets such as vacation daycare centres. Staff expanded the creative recreational space Kids’ Deck. It draws inspiration from current exhibitions and reinforces them using supervised craft, stories, dressing up, puzzles and games. Mini Mariners, was developed during the year for the under-five age group. Run by specially-trained staff, it uses stories, music, puppetry and craft to provide a stimulating introduction to the museum environment. T h e USA G a lle ry In few if any national museums would you find a gallery that was funded by another nation. This makes the USA Gallery unique in the museum world. It celebrates a shared history —more than two centuries of m aritim e links between Australia and the U nited States —and is the result of a generous US endowment to the Museum as a Bicentennial gift to Australia in 1988. The USA Gallery continued to provide wider benefits by enhancing links between the two countries — diplom atic, business, cultural and social. Among the visits this year from US Senators and Congressmen, we were delighted to welcome back former US Ambassador to Australia Mr Bill Lane AO. Mr Lane played a leading role in securing the US Bicentennial G ift during 1988. The gallery hosted

Capturing Poseidon — Photographic encounters with the sea from Peabody Essex Museum, Massachusetts. This is one of a series of fine US-sourced exhibitions coming to us through the close institutional links w ith American museums that the USA Gallery has fostered. Gold Rush! — The Australian experience, m arking the sesquicentenary of the Australian gold rushes, was developed here. It charts the economic, political and social influences flowing between the American and Australian gold rushes. The Gallery’s curator, a trained m aritim e archaeologist, led the ANM M team searching for James Cook’s Endeavour in the USA (details follow). M a ritim e A rc h a e o lo g y The M useum’s team of three m aritim e archaeologists (two curators and a conservator) returned for a second season to advise and assist D r K athy Abbass and the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Program (RIMAP) in the search for Lord Sandwich ex-HMB Endeavour. The ship is believed to be among a British transport fleet scuttled in 1778 to protect the harbour during the American war of independence. The combined team conducted a remote sensing survey of the areas in and around N ew port Harbour. A num ber of sites were located and the likelihood of their being Endeavour was assessed. A lim ited test excavation of a prom ising site north of the Jam estown Bridge revealed some lower hull structures. Timber, stone, coal and sediment samples were collected. The evidence from this wreck suggests it may be the Americanbuilt ship Britannia of 374 tons or one of two English vessels: the 320 ton Rachel and Mary and the 368 ton Lord Sandwich, formerly HMB Endeavour. Excavations in 2001 will attem p t to verify this. This international project attracted considerable media attention. It was assisted by a grant from The M inister for the Environment and Heritage, Senator Robert H ill, w ith support from The Minister for the Arts the H on Peter McGauran and Australian W ater Technologies.

Specially commissioned for the new Watermarks exhibition being developed this year, this unique water craft was built for the National Maritime Collection by the founder of Darwin’s Beer Can Regatta, Lutz Frankenfeld. Its Viking longboat bow with Lions Club figurehead, stern styled after a Greek Galley, and Southeast Asian lateen sail and bamboo spars, reflect the multicultural Darwin community. The 2000-plus beer cans are taped end to end to keep water from entering the ring-pull holes.


Maritime Heritage Program Summary N ew a c q u is itio n s A ppendix 2 is a selection of acquisitions made during 2000-2001, funded by appropriation and in some cases assisted by financial support from Museum benefactors. Appendix 3 lists items donated to the N ational M aritime Collection, and the donors. The major acquisition of the year was of 77 Yolngu bark paintings known as the Saltwater - Yirrkala Bark Paintings of Sea Country Collection. It represents the spiritual and legal basis of this Arnhem Land people’s sea rights claim, and constitutes both a history and a map of their saltwater country. They are the work of 47 artists, recognised masters as well as up and coming artists, who have each inherited the right to paint a specific part of their sea country. They have shared this sacred knowledge to teach non-Aboriginal people Yolngu Law. Their elders have instructed that these paintings will never be produced again and m ust stay together in Australia. This purchase was generously assisted by Stephen G rant of the G rantPirrie Gallery. This year also saw the accession of another unique Indigenous art collection, donated by Australian City Properties Pty Ltd. It comprises no less than 1,016 sculptural artworks called ilma, from the Kimberley region of W estern Australia. These m ultim edia polychrome works of wood and dyed yarns, used in special dances, were made by Bardi men Roy W iggan and his sons of One Arm Point.

This disrupted tours of W harf 7 which are available to Museum visitors. Following the Games this collection was reinstalled in an enhanced display which is now a major attraction for our visitors. R e g is tra tio n The demands of the new Watermarks exhibition being developed in the space previously dominated by Australia II (see report under Key Result Area 2 Products and Programs) were a major component of the section’s workload. The section’s Acting Manager was the project’s coordinator, and registration of the many new collection items to be displayed was a priority. The section made some progress on developing infrastructure to make the M useum ’s collection accessible to online researchers, including digitising a substantial proportion of collection registration photographs. W hile the M useum’s web presence lead the way among Australian m aritim e museums, the need to improve online collection access has become a priority and will dem and increasing com m itm ent and resources from the organisation.

C o n s e rv a tio n

The W h arf 7 M aritim e Heritage Centre houses the collections of both the Australian N ational M aritim e Museum and Sydney H eritage Fleet, and the staff who manage them. For the Sydney 2000 O lympic Games the three-story high foyer of W harf 7 was

Museum conservators worked closely w ith other staff and contractors to improve the main building’s environm ent and to minimise the im pact of major capital works on collection objects displayed there. A feature on the new foyer renovations (reported 29


Key Result Area 3 elsewhere) are rotating airlocks on the east and west entrances which will reduce the exchange of tem perature- and hum idity-controlled air w ith the outside environment. D uring the construction phase of the foyer and the Leisure gallery, hoardings and curtaining helped control dust, as did the use of dust collection w ith power tools. Temporary re-ducting of air conditioning vents helped manage the environment. Barbara Soudah, a private paintings conservator, was employed on a special project to work through the ANMM paintings collection, treating the paintings that require work and preparing them for storage and display.

Performance Reporting

Docking and maintenance of the destroyer Vampire was the major project for Fleet staff during the year. The work, programmed every four years, was carried out at Australian Defence Industry’s Garden Island Dockyard and included survey, cleaning and repainting of the underwater hull surfaces along w ith repairs and repainting of the decks and mainmast. The operation and display of the M useum ’s submarine Onslow improved during the year w ith the engagem ent of an extra shopkeeper on weekends, also benefiting from improved power supplies allowing reduced power consumption, disruption and running costs. Following the outcome of a wideranging review of the section last year a num ber of staff were recruited on an on-going basis. This has allowed some long-term projects such as the restoration of the pearling lugger John Louis to be accelerated. This im portant vessel will return to display soon. Continuing the M useum’s com m itm ent to preserve traditional skills and practices, Dean O ’Malley was engaged as an apprentice shipw right. H e followed M atthew Q uinn who completed his apprenticeship during the year. The M useum’s shipyard at Berrys Bay was once again opened for H eritage Week w ith the focus being the erasure of Sydney’s industrial waterfront. For the entire year we 30

hosted the Batavia crew in one of the heritage Coxswain’s Cottages at Berrys Bay. We worked closely w ith crew of the visiting Duyfken replica as they prepared for their am bitious voyage to The Netherlands for the 4 0 0 th anniversary of the D utch U nited East Indies Company. The voyage began at the Museum wharves in May. Vaughan Evans Library The number of people visiting the library in person to conduct research has increased, and the Library has extended it’s opening hours to include Saturdays. The new position of Public Enquiries Librarian has helped provide a better level of service to the public and enabled Library staff to balance their workload. The Library volunteers continued their invaluable journal indexing projects and assistance with public enquiries. Their commitment, expertise and good company are greatly appreciated by Library staff. Major acquisitions for the year include the final portion of a significant collection of naval books donated by D r David Lark under the Cultural Gifts Program. Major purchases included two important newspaper titles on microfilm, the Australasian Shipping News 1877-1900 and Daily Commercial News 1895-1910. Technical difficulties connecting to the Kinetica service were resolved. Following a hiatus of 18 months the Library was again able to add original cataloguing data to the National Bibliographic Database, and is now able to participate in the Document Delivery service. Continued enhancements to the Library section of the Museum’s website included the on-line publication of the M aritim Illustration Indexes series by the library’s founding donor, the late Vaughan Evans OAM, and indexes to the Museum’s collections or maritime paintings and ship models. The variety of databases and resources available to Museum staff also increased on an enhanced Library Intranet site. The Library manages metadata for the Museum website and began creating AGLS-compliant metadata and Harvest Control Lists to meet Government Online Information Service obligations.

Profile and Image Program Summary M a rketin g and m edia Advertising and publicity, publications and promotions are direct tools used to position the M useum ’s profile and image, increasingly as a modern organisation that surprises and engages its public w ith imaginative explorations of m aritim e heritage and culture going well beyond the traditional museum m edium of gallery exhibitions. The Olympic period was used to boost recognition of the Museum both domestically and internationally. Accredited journalists were invited to inspect the Museum and its m aritim e heritage precinct, a ‘meet and greet’ procedure was p u t in place and extensive information packs were distributed. Some 246 visiting journalists signed a Front of House register and more simply visited, filmed and photographed. From the first day of com petition when official Olympic broadcaster Channel 7 presented its prim e­ tim e news bulletin weather report from Endeavour, the Museum and its fleet became popular backdrops for film ing medal winners. This was in addition to being featuring as a major attraction in overseas ‘W hat's on in Sydney’ segments, including foreign-language interviews w ith m ultilingual Museum staff. M a rk e t re se a rch The Museum continued to develop research as a tool to meet the needs of its present customers and shape its future profile and image. Two major strategic studies were underway in 2000-2001, both in conjunction w ith other organisations. The Olympics was the major focus of joint research w ith the Powerhouse Museum titled Im pact of H allm ark and Mega Events on Museum Attendances. Extracts willbe published by Museums Australia, and the full study will be a joint publication by ANM M and the

Powerhouse. We are participating in research into the threat of declining museum attendances by the University of Technology, Sydney, w ith other museums and universities and the Australian Bureau of Statistics. I t’s called Choosing Museums: Leisure trends and decision making in the free tim e marketplace. O ther in-house market research included surveys of audio guide users and family visitors to children’s programs, and visitor response to the Smugglers exhibition and the large ship replica Batavia. 3D and graphic design A key element in com m unicating a ‘pre­ em inent and innovative’ profile and image for the Museum lies in designing products and environments th at are visually appealing, engage interest and so invite participation in Australia’s m aritim e heritage. This includes perm anent, temporary and travelling exhibitions and galleries, environmental design of interior and exterior spaces, signage and print information. It extends to the festivals and events staged throughout the year. The Design section employs a dynamic process to meet these needs, marrying many disciplines of 3D and graphic design and working collaboratively in a workshop or studio approach. C o rp o ra te s u p p o rt Sponsors continued to provide valuable financial support, products and services for our programs. The travel and shipping industries have assisted the M useum’s many exhibition programs, particularly those drawing on overseas collections. Financial support for the N ational M aritime Collection’s major acquisition for the year is detailed in the previous section, Key Result Area 3, under Acquisitions. Corporate 35


Key Result Area 4 sponsors are acknowledged in Appendix 11. Appendix 12 lists Corporate Members, an allied program adm inistered by the Members manager. Following a review of sponsorship by ANM M Council in the previous financial year, work continued to establish a Foundation to support M useum activities, principally to build a fund to support major acquisitions for the N ational M aritim e Collection. By the end of the year talks with potential candidates for Chairman of the Foundation were close to completion, w ith an announcem ent of the position expected early in the 2001-2002 financial year.

mance Report!n

M em bers Membership of the Museum reached an alltim e high of 14,160 people during the popular visit of the D utch reproduction of Batavia. The ongoing strategy of converting visitors to Members, by offering a refund of entry fees to new Members signed up during their visit, was particularly effective during Batavia's stay. A decline in absolute membership numbers and slight reduction of traditionally high renewal rates coincided w ith the ship’s departure some m onths before the end of the financial year. In line w ith the previous year the category of family membership was strong, signalling the value to parents of the extensive activities offered for children during weekends and school holidays. Members support the Museum in a num ber of ways, and their cash donations are acknowledged in Appendix 11. V o lu n te e rs Volunteers help deliver the M useum ’s services in many ways, working in most Museum sections. The 336 registered volunteers appear in Appendix 19. They contributed 42,857 hours during the year. This was 906 hours less than for the same period last year, in part due

to the departure of Batavia which required a large corps of volunteer guides. The figure, however, was 22.4% above the M useum’s target of 35,000 hours. An error in the volunteer hours previously reported was discovered; this year’s figures incorporate the correction. Volunteers have contributed a total of 238,497 hours to the Museum since the program began in 1990. If valued at $12 per hour this equates to services worth $2.86 m illion dollars. Volunteer guides led a total of 2,692 Vampire tours, escorting 23,649 visitors. General Museum guided tours were attended by 7,682 visitors on 1,534 tours. The Cape Bowling Green Lighthouse/Fleet had 968 visitors on 137 guided tours. Tours of W harf 7, disrupted by fitout for our Sydney 2000 Olympics tenant AusTrade, recommenced, on Australia Day 2001. Since then 489 visitors have been on 193 guided tours. Public guided tours of Batavia finished on 19 March and to that date there were 19,856 visitors on 1,579 guided tours. T he W elcom e W all In an increasingly uneasy national environm ent as far as attitudes towards m igration are concerned, the Welcome Wall pays tribute to the millions of people who have travelled across the world to build modern Australia, right up to the present moment. Subscribers have the name of a m igrating ancestor, family member or themselves engraved in its bronze panels, and their histories recorded on a searchable online database. As such it is one measure of com m unity support for the M useum’s programs targeted at diverse and m ulti-ethnic audiences. Two w ell-attended public ceremonies to unveil new names on its panels brought the num ber of subscriptions to this m igrant memorial to over 9,000.

1.2

Changes in Accounting Policies

T he accounting policies used in the preparation of these financial statem ents are consistent w ith those used in 1999-2000.

1.3

Reporting by Outcom es

A comparison of B udget and Actual figures by outcom e specified in the A ppropriation Acts relevant to the M useum is presented in N ote 2. Any intra-governm ent costs included in the figure 'net cost to Budget outcom es’ are elim inated in calculating the actual budget outcome for the G overnm ent overall.

1.4

Revenue

The revenues described in this N ote relate to the core operating activities of the Museum. Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised upon the delivery of goods to customers. Interest revenue is recognised on a proportional basis taking into account the interest rates applicable to the financial assets. Revenue from disposal of non-current assets is recognised when control of the asset has passed to the buyer. Revenue from the rendering of a service is recognised by reference to the stage of com pletion of contracts or other agreements to provide services to Com m onw ealth bodies. The stage of com pletion is determ ined according to the proportion that costs incurred to date bear to the estim ated total costs of the transaction.

Revenuesfrom Government - Output Appropriations Appropriations for outputs are recognised as revenue to the extent they have been received into the M useum ’s Bank account or are entitled to be received by the Museum at year end.

Resources Received Free of Charge Services received free of charge are recognised as revenues when and only w hen a fair value can be reliably determ ined and the services would have been purchased if they had not been donated. Use of the resources is recognised as an expense. C ontributions o f assets at no cost o f acquisition or for nom inal consideration are recognised at their fair value when the asset qualifies for recognition.

1.5

Transactions by the G overnm ent as Owner

Appropriations to the Museum designated as ‘capital-equity injections’ are recognised directly in equity, to the extent that the appropriations have been received into the M useum ’s Bank account or are entitled to be received by the M useum at year end.

1.6

Em ployee Entitlem ents

(a)

Leave

T he liability for employee entitlem ents includes provision for annual leave and long service leave. N o provision has been m ade for sick leave as it is non-vesting and the average sick leave taken in future years by employees is estim ated to be less than the annual entitlem ent for sick leave. The liability for annual leave reflects the value of total annual leave entitlem ents of all employees at 30 June 2001 and is recognised at its nom inal value.

48


Australian National Maritime Museum Notes to and forming part of the Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2001 (continued)

The non-current portion of the liability for long service leave is recognised and measured at the present value of the estim ated future cash flows to be m ade in respect of all employees at 30 Ju n e 2001. In determ ining the present value of the liability, the M useum has taken into account attritio n rates and pay increases through prom otion and inflation. (b)

Separation and redundancy

Provision is m ade for separation and redundancy paym ents in circumstances where the M useum has formally identified positions as excess to requirem ents and a reliable estim ate of the am ount of the paym ents can be determ ined. (c)

Superannuation

Employees contribute to the Com m onw ealth Superannuation Scheme and Public Sector Superannuation Scheme. Employer contributions am ounting to $ 455,162 (1999-00: $463,108) in relation to these schemes have been expensed in these financial statem ents. N o liability for superannuation benefits is recognised as at 30 June as the employer contributions fully extinguish the accruing liability which is assumed by the Com monwealth. Em ployer Superannuation Productivity Benefit contributions totalled |1 7 0 ,9 8 1 (1999-00: $164,122).

1.7

Leases

A d istin c tio n is m ade betw een finance leases, w hich effectively transfer from the lessor to the lessee substantially all the risks and benefits incidental to ownership of leased non-current assets, and operating leases, under which the lessor effectively retains substantially all such risks and benefits. The M useum has no finance leases. O perating lease paym ents are expensed on a basis which is representative of the p attern of benefits derived from the leased assets. The net present value of future net outlays in respect of surplus space under noncancellable lease agreements is expensed in the period in w hich the space becomes surplus.

1.8

Borrow ing Costs

All borrow ing costs are expensed as incurred.

1.9

Grants

The M useum recognises grant liabilities as follows. M ost grant agreements require the grantee to perform services or provide facilities, or to m eet eligibility criteria. In these cases, liabilities are recognised only to the extent that the services required have been perform ed or the eligibility criteria have been satisfied by the grantee. In cases where grant agreements are m ade w ithout conditions to be m onitored, liabilities are recognised on signing of the agreement.

1.10 Cash Cash means notes and coins held and any deposits held at call w ith a bank or financial institution.

1.11 Financial Instrum ents A ccounting policies in relation to financial instrum ents are disclosed in N ote 20. 49


Australian National Maritime Museum Notes to and forming part of the Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2001 (continued)

1.12 Acquisition of Assets Assets are recorded at cost on acquisition except as stated below. The cost of acquisition includes the fair value of assets transferred in exchange and liabilities undertaken.

1.13 Property (Land, Buildings and Infrastructure), Plant and Equipm ent Asset recognition threshold Purchases of property, p lan t and equipm ent are recognised initially at cost in the Statem ent of Financial Position, except for purchases costing less than $2,000, w hich are expensed in the year of acquisition (other than where they form part of a group of sim ilar item s w hich are significant in total). Revaluations Land, buildings, infrastructure, p lant and equipm ent are revalued progressively in accordance w ith the ‘deprival’ m ethod of valuation in successive 3-year cycles, so th at no asset has a value greater than three years old. T he M useum com pleted its asset revaluation on 30 Ju n e 2001, w ith asset groups updated as follows: • • • •

leasehold land and buildings were revalued in 2000-01; leasehold im provem ents have been revalued in 1998-99; exhibition fitouts have been revalued by type o f asset in 1998-99; p lant and equipm ent, including inform ation technology equipm ent, have been revalued by type of asset

in 1998-99; •

the N ational M aritim e Collection has been revalued in 1999-00.

Assets in each class acquired after the com m encem ent of a progressive revaluation cycle are not captured by the progressive revaluation then in progress. In accordance w ith the deprival m ethodology, land is measured at its current m arket buying price. Property other than land, p lant and equipm ent are measured at their depreciated replacem ent cost. W here assets are held which w ould not be replaced or are surplus to requirem ents, m easurem ent is at net realisable value. A t 30 June 2001, there were no assets in this situation. T he revaluation in 2001 was conducted by the Australian Valuation Office. Recoverable amount test Schedule 1 requires the application of the recoverable am ount test to the M useum ’s non-current assets in accordance w ith AAS 10 Recoverable Amount o f Non-Current Assets. T he carrying am ounts of these noncurrent assets have been reviewed to determ ine w hether they are in excess of their recoverable am ounts. In assessing recoverable am ounts, the relevant cash flows have been discounted to their present value. Depreciation and Amortisation Depreciable property, p lant and equipm ent assets are w ritten off to their estim ated residual values over their estim ated useful lives to the M useum using, in all cases, the straight line m ethod of depreciation. Leasehold im provem ents are am ortised on a straight line basis over the lesser of the estim ated useful life of the im provem ents or the unexpired period of the lease. D epreciation/am ortisation rates (useful lives) and m ethods are reviewed at each balance date and necessary adjustm ents are recognised in the current, or current and future reporting periods, as appropriate. Residual values are re-estim ated for a change in prices only w hen assets are revalued. 50


Australian National Maritime Museum Notes to and forming part of the Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2001 (continued) D epreciation and am ortisation rates applying to each class of depreciable asset are based on the following useful lives:

2000-01 Buildings Leasehold land Leasehold improvements Permanent exhibition items Infrastructure, plant and equipment

22 years 105 years Lease term or 10 years 7 years 20% - 33%

1999-00 22 years 105 years Lease term or 10 years 7 years 20% - 33%

The Collection is not depreciated because of its long term nature and the expected appreciation of its historical value. The aggregate am ount of depreciation allowed for each class of asset during the reporting period is disclosed in N ote 5C.

1.14 Inventories Inventories held for resale by the Museum store are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Inventories not held for resale are valued at cost, unless they are no longer required, in w hich case they are valued at net realisable value.

1.15 Taxation The M useum is exem pt from all forms of taxation except fringe benefits tax and goods and services tax.

1.16.Capital Usage Charge A capital usage charge of 12% is imposed by the Com m onw ealth on the net assets of the M useum . The charge is adjusted to take account of asset gifts and revaluation increments during the year.

1.17 Foreign Currency Transactions denom inated in a foreign currency are converted at the exchange rate at the date of transaction. Foreign currency receivables and payables (if any) are translated at the exchange rates current as at balance date. Associated currency gains and losses are not m aterial.

51


Australian National Maritime Museum Notes to and forming part of the Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June 2001 (continued) 1.18 Insurance The M useum has insured for risks through the G overnm ent’s insurable risk managed fund, called ‘Comcover’. W orkers com pensation is insured through Comcare Australia.

1.19 Com parative Figures Com parative figures have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation in these financial statem ents where required.

1.20 Rounding A m ounts are rounded to the nearest $1,000 except in relation to: • rem uneration of council members; and • rem uneration of auditors.
