Chairman’s message

Our previous director, Mary-Louise Williams, retired early this year after a 23-year association with the museum, 11 as its leader. Her final activities in that role came as the museum celebrated 20 years since opening to the public, back in November 1991. Those celebrations, noted in this Annual Report, were a time of reflecting upon some fine achievements by the museum. MaryLouise’s commitment and professionalism contributed

It’s my pleasure to present the Australian National Maritime Museum’s Annual Report for the period 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012. It addresses the final year of the organisation’s Strategic Plan 2009-2012, which was developed and tabled in accordance with the Australian National Maritime Museum Act 1990. This was a landmark year for the Australian National Maritime Museum in several respects, not the least of which was welcoming the museum’s new director, Kevin Sumption, who took up the position in February of this year. Kevin comes to us highly regarded in the museum world, after successful senior appointments at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney and most recently at the Royal Museums Greenwich, UK, formerly known as the National Maritime Museum - surely the benchmark of maritime museums worldwide. In fact we’re welcoming Kevin back to this museum, where he worked early in his career as an assistant curator during its very first years of being open to the public, in the early 1990s. And that’s evident, in the deep understanding he brings with him of what this museum is and where it has come from. Kevin has already demonstrated a clear vision for the future of this organisation, and I look forward to continuing to work with him as productively as we have since his arrival. I extend my personal congratulations to Kevin on securing the leadership of this vital, national cultural asset, and I wish him a warm welcome.

greatly to those, and to making this the nationally and internationally recognised institution it is today. This year’s Annual Report notes both challenges and achievements, measured against the outcomes and programs of the portfolio budget statements for the year, and the goals and performance indicators of the museum’s strategic plan. We operate in a national economic environment that is essentially robust and sound, but paradoxically is marked by uncertainty and with downsides to a high Australian dollar, for example impacting on the foreign tourism that is vital to us. You will read of outstanding contributions to the wider knowledge and enjoyment of Australia’s maritime heritage. One was the safe completion of our most ambitious national outreach program, the 2011-12 Australian circumnavigation of the museum’s replica of James Cook’s HM Bark Endeavour. The conference 'Nawi - exploring Australia’s Indigenous watercraft’ successfully defined an important new area of national understanding and collaboration. Both of these projects engaged deeply with Indigenous elders and communities. As well, the museum staged the unusual and imaginative visitor attractions Fish in Australian Art and AQUA: A Journey into the World of Water. I would like once again to acknowledge the museum’s dedicated team of management, staff and volunteers who serve Australian maritime history and heritage so well, and extend my appreciation for the support of Minister for the Arts, the Hon Simon Crean MP, and the Australian Government through its heritage and cultural programs, as well as the museum’s many sponsors, donors and supporters. Peter Dexter am fa ic d Chairman Australian National Maritime Museum Council

Director’s overview

One o f the m ost vivid m emories during m y first m onths as new director o f the Australian National M aritim e M useum was the flotilla o f Indigenous canoes gliding silently through the dark waters o f Darling Harbour, each w ith its ow n fire illum inating the hum an figure paddling it.

It was 30 May 2012, at the welcoming ceremony for the museum’s groundbreaking national conference ‘Nawi - Exploring Australia’s Indigenous watercraft’, but the spectacle reached far back in time to evoke the working harbour of the Gadigal and Wangal people as they harvested seafood here in the centuries and millennia before the arrival of Europeans. The small fires, as First Fleet officer Watkin Tench observed in 1788, were to dress fish by’ as soon as they were caught. Indeed, this visually and emotionally moving event was a first return of bark canoes and their hearth fires to our harbour in over a century and a half. What’s more, the canoes that evening had come from different regions of Australia, each canoe different but each closely related to its own local environment, making this a particularly appropriate ceremonial opening to the first ever conference on this subject. Through collaboration and co-operation with communities, Indigenous elders and institutions around the country, with practical workshops to share traditional and newly rediscovered techniques, the museum has successfully brought together community workers and canoe enthusiasts, scholars, archaeologists and museum professionals to share knowledge and skills. This was a milestone event, and with it came the excitement of

defining an important new area of national understanding, linking communities determined to preserve their cultural knowledge, and making real advances in researching and recording this fascinating subject. Details of the conference, its scope and diversity, appear in Appendix 2.

Voyaging through art, the environment and our own seas From a year of substantial programs, all of them recorded in the following pages and appendixes of this Annual Report, other highlights warrant singling out here. It’s exciting when a museum puts together a successful major exhibition on a completely novel theme. We did this with Fish in Australian Art. A fascinating range of works from our collection, and from well over 50 lending institutions and individuals, led our visitors from rock art and colonial art to the major art movements of recent centuries, and featured works by prominent contemporary artists as well. This was above: Worimi man Steve

an exhibition to remind our public, once again, of the surprising and endless delights that can be found beneath that frequently misunderstood catch-all heading, ‘maritime history and heritage’. Just as innovative was AQUA: A Journey into the World of Water. With water installations, 360° screen projections and other visual effects, this ‘multisensory experience’ (an initiative of Cirque du Soleil’s Guy Laliberte) delivered powerful messages about life’s most vital medium, water, and its conservation. It broke new ground for the museum in several respects, and was certainly an indicator of an increasing engagement by us with a wide variety of environmental topics that we want to be seen as a natural and logical part of our brief. And, of course, we brought our replica of HM Bark Endeavour safely home from her historic circumnavigation of Australia from April 2011 to May 2012. The internationally acclaimed replica of James Cook’s immortal ship of discovery, certainly the most famous in our national history, visited 18 ports, welcomed more than 75,000 visitors on board (including 18,440 school children and teachers). Under Captain Ross Mattson and his professional core crew of expert tall-ship sailors, 706 paying voyage crew put to sea to learn about 18th-century life at sea, and to gain an experience they will never forget. This epic voyage was an extraordinarily successful museum outreach project on a scale that few, if any, museums will undertake. Then, with the sails scarcely dry, Endeavour voyaged to Lord Howe Island with even more voyage crew on board, to observe the last Transit of Venus of any of our lifetimes, on 6 June 2012. This was another important link with history, since it was Cook’s voyage to view the 1769 Transit of Venus that brought him to our shores, and led to the English settlement at Port Jackson. The Endeavour replica is an extraordinary museum asset, connecting us to history and, in a very real and hands-on way, to the world of seamanship and ship husbandry.

The 20th anniversary In November 2011 the museum celebrated 20 years since its opening to the public. This was an opportunity to look back with pride at our achievements, and to look forward to consider how we might make even more rewarding use of our site, our collection and all our other resources in the years ahead. Having taken up my position as director in February of the year under review, I want to say in my first Annual Report that I am honoured to be here and excited at the prospect of participating in a new phase of the museum’s development.

some drawn from our collection, others imported from great museums and institutions across the world. It has welcomed as many as half a million visitors through the doors in a year, and many more people are interacting with the museum through outreach programs and digital services. Here I would like to join museum chairman Peter Dexter am in acknowledging the contribution of my predecessor, Mary-Louise Williams, who retired after 23 years of service to the Australian National Maritime Museum, starting as senior curator in 1988. So many accomplishments are the result of her vision and energy. With our 20th year came the need to prepare the next Strategic Plan to carry the museum forward through the triennium 2012-15. That plan is now in place.

Operating environment The numbers of visitors to our attractions nationwide are shown in a table on page 44. A reduction in visitors to the Darling Harbour site in part reflects extremely strong summer programs from the museum’s key competitors in a very keen Sydney market. With the Australian dollar highly priced against other world currencies, the number of overseas visitors is in decline too. Some reduction was also anticipated following the reintroduction of general museum admission charges in December 2011 , when we reinstated a gallery entry fee that had been in abeyance for some years. With costs generally rising faster than appropriations, as has been noted in previous Annual Reports, the museum council felt compelled to reintroduce admission charges to the museum’s exhibition galleries as a strategy to increase overall commercial revenues. This brought our museum into line with other major museums and competitors in Sydney. It also brought our galleries into line with our historic vessels, where charges have always applied

an extraordinary m useum history and, in a very real and hands-on way, to the w orld o f seam anship and ship husbandry

We are all - council, executive and staff - constantly aware of the tightness of funding, and in the new Strategic Plan for 2012-15 we are focusing on ways and means to increase revenues from non-government sources. As well as seeking additional support through traditional sponsorships and corporate partnerships we aim to rebuild museum attendances, not least by researching and re-invigorating our core galleries and exhibitions. We believe we have an opportunity, at this stage in the museum's development, to create an attraction that Sydneysiders as well as regional, national and international travelers will feel they must visit. This is an exciting challenge. We are presently witnessing almost unbelievably rapid developments in digital communication, and we can anticipate even greater opportunities as the National Broadband Network is rolled out. Museums must recognise these advances, understand and make good use of them, as it’s through them that we can build our audiences to a far greater extent than was ever before imaginable. Our museum has already made significant investments in information, communications and technology (ICT) infrastructure and systems. We will make more, and we will be giving high priority

With all of this we will increase the emphasis on our research activities. We are resolved to enter more high-quality, collaborative ventures with research, educational and cultural institutions, nationally and internationally.

historically but in this Asian century. For the longer term, the new Strategic Plan 2012-15 introduces initiatives that will set us moving in new directions. In an effort to improve visitor experience, for example, we will review the existing use of all museum spaces, indoor and outdoor, including the facilities and resources presently devoted to education. We will draw up a 10-year master plan to rejuvenate the permanent or core exhibitions. We intend here to look at Australia's changed and changing trade relationships and strategic alliances for subject themes, recognising how much these differ from 20 or more years ago when the conceptual framework of the present gallery structure was laid down. We will consult widely in the community to develop the exhibitions’ master narratives. Recognising the enormous potential of our harbourside infrastructure and wharves, and the widespread interest in and huge program potential of the historic fleet moored there, we will redevelop interpretation plans for all vessels and particularly for the Endeavour replica, the ex-RAN Oberon class submarine Ons/owand the Daring class destroyer Vampire. For HMB Endeavour, which has already achieved iconic status, we have begun to develop a five-year voyaging plan to complement improved interpretation facilities at her museum berth.

Organisation and infrastructure The year 2011-12, which began by reviewing where the museum had been in its first 20 years, was then given largely to forward thinking and planning. To realise our ambitious and far-reaching plans, we need to be creative and adventurous, to fully utilise the talent we have and to attract new talent. During the year under review, in consultation with my staff and organisational experts, we undertook intensive planning for a restructuring of the organisation in order to place our resources where they can most effectively realise the vision of the Strategic Plan. The changes will be given effect early in financial year 2012-13. Organisational infrastructure will be further reviewed and modified as we move forward through the various planned phases of our redevelopments in the months and years ahead. Critical to the success of any organisation are the people who work within it: the council, executive, staff, the contracted personnel, and in our case the wonderful army of volunteers, everyone. In 20 years our people have created a museum that’s well known and highly respected nationally and internationally. As we move into the new year, I know we have a solid base of experience on which to build and I am confident we have a sound plan in hand for a viable and vibrant future.

MMAPPS grants to regional and community organisations One of the museum’s most important cultural outreach programs is the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme (M MAPSS), which we administer with funding from the Australian Government through the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport. Grants of up to $10,000 are awarded to non-profit maritime museums and historical societies, usually community-based and run by volunteers, to fund restoration, conservation, collection management and exhibition development projects. The scheme was initiated in 1995 and since then over 260 projects across all Australian states and most of its territories have been supported. This year we awarded $99,947 to 17 heritage projects, and $6,000 for internships.

Sail Away and travelling exhibition program SailAway\s a program of travelling exhibitions available to two tiers of museums - those with a museumstandard environment and those close to it. It uses specially designed, easily managed and installed modules of hanging artworks and photographs. We also tour more complex exhibitions. During the reporting period the program toured or prepared exhibitions On their own - Britain's child migrants-, Joseph Banks and the flora of the Australian east coast; Little Shipmates - seafaring pets; Freshwater Saltwater - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prints; Wrecks, reefs and the Mermaid and Sons of Sindbad - the photographs of Alan Villiers. These reached 153,465 visitors. Their destinations are listed on pages 32-33.

Details of 2011-12 grants appear in Appendix 1.

Internship and work experience program Volunteers from regional and remote maritime museums receive financial support as part of the museum’s MMAPSS grant scheme to work at AN M M for a period, gathering skills and making important professional contacts. Internships of Helen Sheedy of Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village and Myfanwy Thompson of Clyde River and Batemans Bay Historical Society Inc appear in more detail in Appendix 1. The museum also collaborates with university museum studies programs to assist with students’ professional development. 2011-12 interns are: Margaret Rooney, Charles Sturt University; Nina Bergh, University of Sydney; Kate Pentecost, University

HM Bark Endeavour replica The 13-month circumnavigation of Australia by the replica of James Cook’s HMB Endeavour was the largest, most ambitious national outreach program ever undertaken by the museum. The voyage included every state plus the Northern Territory, every state capital city, with visits to 18 regional ports and opening to visitors in 15 of those ports. Numbers of visitors including schools, and the association of over 1000 new out-of-port volunteers with the museum, are reported elsewhere. On the June voyage to Lord Howe Island to observe the Transit of Venus, this outreach was extended to the island’s school.

Sydney Heritage Fleet This community-based non-profit organisation formerly known as the Sydney Maritime Museum began in 1965 and specialises in restoring and operating heritage steam and sailing vessels. The Australian National Maritime Museum provides a high level of support to SHF and its large volunteer base by donating extensive office, collection storage and workshop accommodation and services, plus berthing for its major asset the barque James Craig at our Wharf 7 Maritime Heritage Centre.

Curatorial Curatorial and other museum staff delivered or published lectures, papers or articles, assisted with public enquiries (see page 52) or appeared in various media, listed in Appendixes 6, 7 and 8. Kim Tao met with Community Arts Network WA, Christian Brothers Ex-Residents Services, Clontarf Management Office, Clontarf Old Boys Heritage Committee and Western Australian Museum to develop an arts program to engage with former child migrants in WA. In Melbourne she conducted interviews and research with World War II evacuees, the Archive of Vietnamese Boat People, and Maltese child migrants. 2011 Moveable Heritage Fellow Claire Baddeley was mentored by Stephen Gapps, with resultant exhibition From Commodity to Conservation: A history of whaling in Jervis Bay at the Lady Denman Heritage Complex, Huskisson in collaboration with the Powerhouse Museum.

Registration Staff contributed digital object records and images to the National Library of Australia’s Picture Australia and Trove data sharing initiatives.

Fleet Staff of the museum section responsible for floating vessel management and maintenance continue to provide guidance and assistance to many other individuals and institutions on shipwright works and items for display. Old rigging materials removed from the replica of HMB Endeavour during its rerigging last year were donated to the Hervey Bay Maritime Museum for display purposes, and to the Cascades Female Factory in Tasmania (for practical demonstrations of the difficult and punitive task of 'picking oakum’).

Visitor programs and education The education team introduced an outreach program

providing online education resources and a virtual Endeavour tour for primary students. A Transit of Venus program was developed for Lord Howe Island School. A video-conferencing project was developed for schools, its first uses being both at Lord Howe Island and in Darwin. Outreach associated with the Nawi conference was delivered to Vincentia High School, Alexandria Park Community School, Matraville Sports High, Matraville Soldier Settlement Primary. Staff developed education kits to accompany the Sail Away and travelling exhibition programs.

Vaughan Evans Library The museum’s public research facility, named for the maritime historian whose personal library became the core of its now unrivalled maritime history collection, provides personalised research enquiry services to those unable to visit in person. This year it assisted 1,757 external enquiries, both from Australia and overseas. The library is an expert advisor on the complex and constantly expanding array of online information resources for historical maritime research. It's also involved in the important work of helping older people get online to research family history. Online research resources include extensive indexes of ship illustrations, and digitised periodicals.

The Store Advice, training and mentoring was given to other cultural institutions including Devonport Maritime Museum, Lady Denman Heritage Complex, Burnie Regional Art Gallery, Newcastle Maritime Museum and many others.

Volunteers Volunteer outreach was typified by the recruitment of national volunteers in support of HMB Endeavour replica's circumnavigation 2011 - 12 , for visits to ports around Australia.

Venue hire and catering The section’s educational outreach initiative provides TAFE NSW Event Management students with experience of the museum’s venue operations, by site inspection and forum.

Scott’s last expedition When Captain Robert Falcon Scott set out on the British Antarctic Expedition 1910, he could not have predicted it would be his last.

Public perceptions of Scott have varied greatly over the years, from national hero to flawed leader, and discussions of what really happened on that ill-fated journey still captivate our imagination.

Fish in Australian art Fish have featured in art in Australia for thousands of years. Artists have put fish in the picture to document, decorate, delight and provoke. From the dinner table to the ocean, fish are an intriguing theme, and the works explore the emotional and dramatic, the humorous and eccentric. This unique exhibition spanned Australian art history from rock art to the contemporary and reveals how this fascination with fish has been an enduring inspiration for artists.

Corporate governance

Privacy legislation

The museum is a statutory authority within the portfolio of Prime Minister and Cabinet. Its enabling legislation, the Australian National Maritime Museum Act 1990, established a governing council to ensure the proper and efficient performance of its functions. At 30 June 2012, the council comprised eleven members including the museum's director and a representative of the Royal Australian Navy.

The museum provides information as required to the Privacy Commissioner for inclusion in the Personal Information Digest. No reports by the Privacy Commissioner under Section 30 of the Privacy Act 1988 were received during 2011-12.

The full council met four times during the reporting period. Business is facilitated through five committees detailed in Appendix 14. They meet in advance of each full council meeting, and additionally if required, providing advice on the matters identified in their respective charters. Each committee apart from finance and audit comprises the director and at least two other councillors, one of whom acts as chair. All councillors are welcome to attend any committee meeting in an ex-officio capacity. In accordance with better practice the finance and audit committee includes an

All museum staff are aware of the importance of good governance, and governance is a standing item on the agenda for the executive management group’s fortnightly meetings. The museum prepares triennial strategic plans and annual operating plans for ministerial approval in accordance with the ANMM Act. The Minister receives reports on governance and strategic matters, and the chairman and director meet with the Minister as required to review these. A senior departmental representative attends all council meetings as an observer and copies of the minutes are subsequently provided to the Minister and department. The museum is also subject to the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 (CAC Act) and in addition to its regular annual reporting obligations to the Minister and the parliament, also lodges a CAC Act compliance report with its portfolio Minister and the Minister for Finance and Deregulation.

staff have access to ergonomic assessments as well as free screen-based vision testing and influenza shots. Outdoor staff are provided with protective clothing, sunglasses and sunscreen, and workshop staff are given biannual hearing tests. WH&S is included in the site induction given to all new employees, volunteers and contractors. Online hazard identification and accident and incident databases have been established to facilitate notification and remedial action. There were two reportable incidents under section 68 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011: one involving a visitor and the other a contractor. There were also five claims for compensation by staff and 34 staff days were lost due to injury. Across the museum a number of WH&S initiatives took place during the year. All security section officers trained in emergency response including oxygen revival, anaphylaxis response, defibulator operation and first aid. Regular scenarios are conducted between both the security and fleet teams to assess their operational readiness in the event of accidents or disasters. Training in confined spaces was done by all relevant fleet staff. The development of risk assessment plans is standard for many areas of public programming, for example the Endeavour replica team developing individual risk assessment plans for each port of the 2011-12 circumnavigation. In the conservation laboratory there was a review of the type of disposable gloves used to reduce the risk of materials contamination and allergic reaction to the gloves.

Environment protection and biodiversity The museum’s environmental management policy expresses its commitment to minimising the environmental impact of its operations, with environmental issues considered an integrated part of our land- and water-based operations. The museum is also fully committed to sustainable development with all current and proposed site developments to comply with the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The environmental management system is certified

as AS/NZ ISO 14001:2004 compliant and we report energy consumption to the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (Clean Energy Regulator). Targets relating to waste streams and reduced consumption of water and electricity were achieved. An energy audit on the exhibition and Wharf 7 buildings included all light and power usage and building design. Reduction in carbon footprint was sought by providing energy-efficient replacements to the air-conditioning infrastructure. Further details appear in the report on the major building infrastructure on page 65. Sustainable design practice is exercised in all levels of temporary and travelling exhibition production. Suppliers with accredited environmental standards and practices are selected, as are sustainable products. Exhibitions are built using recycled and recyclable display cases and structures, water-based nontoxic paints, inks and dyes, local and carbon-neutral materials. This carries over to the conservation laboratory, with the use of LED lighting to reduce energy consumption. The fleet maintenance team removed asbestos from patrol boat Advance. In the library investments such as two new microfilm reader/scanners contribute to reduction in paper use. The launch of the new museum venues by Joanna Savill, the director of Crave Sydney International Food Festival, was a sustainable event, sourcing produce from local farmers and adopting sustainable practices. Carbon offset/credit was purchased by our caterers contributing to a greenhouse gas saving for the event of five tonnes. Consolidation of information and communications infrastructure has reduced physical server hardware and with dynamic power and cooling at hardware and data centre level, reduces energy consumption. E-waste was sent for recycling by Sydney City Council E-waste program, with 46.7 kg of toner material diverted from landfill. Batteries are recycled. Multiple personal printers were consolidated into fewer multifunction devices, and secure print release timeout reduces unwanted printing and paper wastage. Forty desktop PCs with monitor, keyboard and mouse were donated to St. Patrick’s College in Strathfield for transport to a Papua New Guinea schools project.

HM Bark Endeavour replica The museum has planned and completed, safely and successfully, the Endeavour replica's 2011-12 circumnavigation of Australia - the largest, most ambitious national outreach program we have ever undertaken. The itinerary included every state plus the Northern Territory, every state capital city, with visits to many regional ports. The majority of the voyage was completed under sail. The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations funded 39 berths on HMB Endeavour for Indigenous people on most of the 20 legs of the voyage. This was part of a pre-employment program for Indigenous people that is being run nationally. The circumnavigation was documented on a number of social media websites, including Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and a dedicated blog. Immediately after returning, Endeavour sailed to Lord Howe Island to observe the Transit of Venus.

Public programs and education The visitor and education teams’ entire range of programs, both for the general public, schools and education audiences, are recorded in Appendix 2. Among the year’s innovations were our Sustainable Sunset Seafood dinner onboard HMAS Vampire, part

of the Sydney’s Crave Food Festival in October featuring celebrity chef Tom Kine. Visiting vessels Whale Song (cetacean research) and Lady Amber (CSIRO Argo oceanographic buoy deployment) exposed visitors to oceanic environment projects, and we partnered with Greenups during our summer attraction AQUA for talks by leading water sustainability experts. The museum celebrated 20 years since it opened its doors to the public and the range of activities included a Gala Dinner for sponsors, supporters of the museum and staff past and present. A 20th-anniversary photographic competition, Museum Moments, had winners from WA and regional NSW. For the major exhibition Fish in Australian Art we worked with the Art Gallery of New South Wales to provide in-depth visual art interpretive training to museum volunteer guides. The education team developed a visual arts program to accompany this exhibition. Two debating series were organised based on the exhibitions Scott’s Last Expedition and Remembering Titanic. For the HMB Endeavour circumnavigation our education unit produced online cross-curriculum materials, and promoted and coordinated school in-port bookings resulting in visits for over 18,000 students and teachers. We held video-conference sessions with Northern Territory and South Australian schools; collaborated with other museums for enhanced visit programs; collaborated with Captain Cook’s Cottage in Melbourne on a children’s writing competition; worked with Taronga Zoo’s Indigenous Education Officer to produce resource materials; and coordinated schools’ participation in leaving and welcome-home ceremonies.

A special event held to celebrate the 10,000th school visitor to Endeavour attracted strong media attention. To mark the Transit of Venus the education team developed programs at the museum and for students on Lord Howe Island with Sydney Observatory. Our schools program gave Indigenous youth a voice in the museum’s important national conference 'Nawi - exploring Australia's Indigenous watercraft’. Two indigenous teacher placements worked on our Indigenous outreach program for students with a disability. This program, conducted by museum teacher-guides, provided access to Indigenous stories, art and culture through objects in the ANMM Education Collection, facilitating exploration and a tactile learning experience. It linked directly to syllabus outcomes in Stages 2 and 3 for the key learning areas HSIE, Visual Arts, CAPA, Mathematics, English and PDHPE. Different versions of the program were developed for students with intellectual disabilities, and for students with hearing and sight disabilities.

Vaughan Evans Library As the museum celebrated 20 years since opening to visitors, its public research facility the Vaughan Evans Library had already marked 25 years of providing invaluable service to maritime researchers. Named after the esteemed Australian maritime historian who in 1986 donated his personal library to become its foundation, the library was serving the Australian public right through those early developmental years before the museum opened in 1991.

The library was closed to large groups for a part of the year due to building works. The focus was therefore on core work such as external public services, and internally on infrastructure and knowledge management. The trend to more complex research enquiries and more detailed family history research continues. We looked at big-picture issues such as web presence, electronic resources, discovery layers, integrating online content, and improving subject resources to support the museum’s new Strategic Plan. The library’s intranet presence was replaced by a library Sharepoint community, with lots of social networking features to help get library services to museum staff and to create an engaged community of library users. Major acquisitions this year included electronic resources the British Newspaper Archive, Goldsmiths Kress Library of Economic Literature and 18th-Century Collections online.

Publications We administered the 2011 Frank Broeze Memorial Maritime History awards, sponsored jointly by this museum and the Australian Association for Maritime History. The biennial prize was increased by the two organisations to $3,500, and a new $500 community award was added, for local museums and history societies. The winner of the main prize was lain McCalman, for Darwin's Armada - How four voyagers to Australasia won the battle for evolution and changed the world (Penguin Australia 2009). The Australian Community Maritime History Prize was awarded to the Lady Denman Heritage Complex, Huskisson, for Peter

Crabb’s Shipping and Shipwrecks - Stories from Jervis Bay and its neighbouring coasts (2010). At the end of the year in review, the editing and design of a major new museum publication highlighting our collection, 100 stories from the Australian national Maritime Museum, was complete, in association with the NewSouth Publishing (University of NSW Press). The 258-page book, edited by Theresa Willsteed, is to be launched in October 2012. We were associate publisher of the first national history of the towing industry, Heroic, Forceful and Fearless - Australia’s tugboat heritage by Randi Svensen (Citrus Press Sydney 2012). The museum's flagship quarterly journal Signals, with a circulation of 6,000 nationally and overseas, grew in size, introducing a new series on maritime museums and historic vessels from around Australia.

The Store The Store builds on its reputation as an exciting and varied shopping environment as well as an extension to the museum visit experience. It employs a team of experienced staff and offers exceptional customer sen/ice. Much of the merchandise is designed especially for the museum, or sourced from around the world, making a unique selection of gifts and souvenirs. During 2011-12, a range of merchandise was designed and developed for the AQUA and Fish in Australian Art

exhibitions. Product was also sourced internationally for the exhibition Remembering Titanic - 100 years. The Store became the only place in Australia to stock these products and they achieved strong sales. Despite a downturn in visitation to the museum, the takings exceeded budget. The wholesale arm continued to grow, supplying merchandise to an everexpanding network of museums and cultural outlets.

Sydney By Sail Sydney By Sail is a successful commercial enterprise operated from the museum waterfront by former Olympic yachtsman Matt Hayes. His yacht charter company is highly regarded in the tourism industry and offers short sails on the harbour and overnight cruises as well as sailing courses and corporate sailing. It benefits the museum not just by its commercial return, but by giving our visitors the opportunity to extend their museum experience onto the water, so that the museum becomes their gateway to the experience of sail and Sydney Harbour.

Curatorial sections The work of the curatorial sections in developing exhibitions, researching and acquiring additions to the National Maritime Collection, providing professional services and advice, and partnering with a diverse range of organisations, is reflected in many sections of this annual report particularly in Section 1: The Year in Review, which includes a catalogue of the year’s exhibitions. The list of selected acquisitions to the NMC that appears in Appendix 3, and the list of donors to the collection in Appendix 4, reveal the diversity of our holdings. Publications, lectures, and media appearances by members of the curatorial sections are listed in Appendixes 6, 7 and 8. Appendix 2 lists the program for the curatorial section's outstanding research and community collaboration, the national conference 'Nawi - exploring Australia’s Indigenous watercraft' held 30 M ay1 June 2012. Initially aimed at addressing the paucity of typological studies and the lack of any national survey in this important area representing over 40,000 years of maritime history, this project expanded with regional workshops and practical experiments in canoebuilding to link many Indigenous communities that are determined to preserve their cultural knowledge. Working on Indigenous collections, University of Sydney Museum Studies intern Mariko Smith updated the data on artists Billy Missi and Lola Greeno, clearing copyright for all their works, writing blogs on her internship and completing a Google map project on both artists. A significant acquisition was a derrka (bark canoe) made in the mid-1980s by John Bulun Bulun of the Ganalbingu language group and the Gurrumba Garumba clan, from Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. This type of craft, used to hunt magpie geese and collect their eggs in the Arafura Swamp, was made famous in the film Ten Canoes. Exhibition fitout of the major Wharf 7 foyer redevelopment, featuring historic small craft both power and sail, marine engines and collection items from Sydney Heritage Fleet and this museum, was 80% completed during the year. We received a grant of $71,100 from National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program to tour On their Own - Britain's child migrants and Freshwater Saltwater - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prints in 2011-12. Most curators were engaged in researching and writing entries to the major new museum publication 100 stories from the Australian National Maritime Museum, which will be published in October 2012.

Maritime archaeology The four trained underwater archaeologists of this important museum program continued the work that receives extensive media coverage to inform the wider public (Appendix 8). Their highest-profile achievement was an expedition to Frederick Reefs off Cairns, northern Queensland, successfully locating and identifying the wreck of the Royal Charlotte (1825) in collaboration with Silentworld Foundation and University of Sydney. The museum’s curator of maritime archaeology, Kieran Hosty, inspected the remains of the historic wreck of the barquentine Buster (1893) uncovered by storms on the beach at Woolgoolga, with the Heritage Office of

In both cases the activities exposed these vessels to an important audience of yachting enthusiasts and racers. Ten vessels were slipped or docked during the year for hull surveys, maintenance and anti-fouling, with the Oberon class submarine HMAS Onslow (served 1969-99) and Commonwealth Lightship CLS4 Carpentaria (built 1916-17) being simultaneously drydocked in the outer Captain Cook Dockyard by Thales at Garden Island, Sydney. Major hull preservation was also carried out on the Attack class patrol boat HMAS Advance (served 1968-88) and a full survey was done while in dock. This identified some minor deep pitting in the steel hull plates, which was repaired. A full inclining test, a measure of stability, was successfully carried out.

The veteran vessel is considered by many to constitute a floating war memorial, and was once again the centerpiece for Remembrance Day on 11 November, and for a special event held for members of the Z Special Forces Association in April this year. One of the fleet apprentice shipwrights, Clarke Prior, was selected to travel to New Zealand with the Boating Industry of Australia and represented the museum at the annual build-a-boat competition held in Auckland.

Members program The year saw a significant rise in memberships, to 3,272, with the number of Members increasing to 8,324, raising the proportion of family and out-of-port memberships and substantially increasing the total of corporate memberships. This was in spite of challenges posed by staff turnover and the need to replace an ageing membership database. A comprehensive survey of Members’ responses to their flagship quarterly journal Signals - one of the key Member benefits - was initiated, and at the end of year, as responses were flooding in, was revealing an overwhelming endorsement of its content, form and format. The Members' lounge underwent some changes to enhance visitor amenity. Members programs lent additional depth and substance to the museum’s temporary exhibitions, a number of them relating to exhibitions marking the centenaries of the Titanic sinking and the Scott Antarctic exhibition. The program of activities swelled to a record 67 events with highlights including a harbour cruise to

mark the 70th anniversary of the WW2 Japanese midget submarine attack; numerous talks by new book authors; the 10th Phil Renouf Memorial Lecture in association with Sydney Heritage Fleet featuring Commodore Kim Pitt RAN (Rtd); and a sellout cruise aboard James Craig to welcome home the Endeavour replica after her 2011-12 circumnavigation of Australia. A record of all 2011-12 programs enjoyed by Members can be found in Appendix 2.

The Welcome Wall The Welcome Wall is both a physical and virtual tribute honouring the more than six million migrants who have made Australia home. It celebrates individual courage, determination, vision, entrepreneurship, unity, diversity and all that it means to be Australian. Each year thousands register to have their names inscribed on the 100-metre-long bronze wall on the public walkway at the northern perimeter of the museum’s waterfront, and to have their stories and those of their families

as a permanent record for the families and the future generations of those families, as well as acting as a public and collective record of our multicultural roots. The museum thanks our ongoing Welcome Wall partner SBS Media. Two ceremonies, unveiling 1,071 names in-front of 2,300 guests, were held at the museum this year. Our VIP speakers, Janis Peterson and Peta Jane (PJ) Madan (SBS), inspired ceremony guests by sharing their own personal stories of migration, challenge and success in Australia. The museum was proud to invite 9-year-old Lara Sawaya to recite a poem of her own family history, which captivated guests old and young alike.

Media This has been a fantastic year for lifting the museum’s media profile across the country, and internationally as well, with an incredible 50% increase in media stories from the previous year. Over the last 12 months the museum featured in 1,708 media stories, up from 1,143 in the previous year. Not surprisingly, our Endeavour replica’s circumnavigation of Australia contributed significantly to the increase in coverage, with 39 % of media coverage for the year about the voyage. This was predominantly in interstate and regional media, significantly raising the museum’s profile nationwide. Highlights include national coverage of Endeavour's Indigenous program with the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations on ABC TV's 7.30 program and the National Indigenous Times and Koori Mail; a three-page cover story in the January edition of Qantas - The Australian Way inflight magazine by Jennifer Byrne; five-minute feature on BBC News’ FastTrack program; and front-page picture stories in The Age and the Herald Sun on Endeavour's encounter with Queen Mary 2. The museum’s exhibitions also generated fine media coverage, with RememberingTitanic - 100 years featured in 106 media stories during the year and Fish in Australian artfeatured in 65. The discovery of the wreck of the Royal Charlotte by the museum’s maritime archaeology team in January also helped to highlight the museum’s leading interest in maritime archaeology while profiling our experts. There were 50 media stories on the subject. Appendix 8 lists the media appearances made by staff in 2011 - 12 .

by 12 % - was a noteworthy achievement in one of the museum’s toughest years. There was strong competition from other museums and attractions, volatile weather over our peak summer period, an uncertain economic climate and a slowdown in key international tourism markets. In early December, as noted in the Director’s overview, the museum re-introduced paid general admission to offset the rising costs of delivering programs, services and maintenance on our historic vessels. Our revenue figures demonstrated the ability to quickly adapt to challenging market conditions and dedication and commitment from museum staff and contractors. This was aided by the introduction of a simpler pricing structure and a continued focus on ticket sales conversion at Front of House. Importantly, the change in ticketing allowed for savings of over 20% for some adult and child visitors. The Big Ticket, our main admission ticket, was reduced from $70 to $60 for a family. This competitive new price point was critical to the success of our sales conversion, with the percentage of vessel tickets sold in 2011-12 reaching 60% (37% in 2010-11). Revenue per visitor went up to $5.85 ($3.51 in 2010-11). This meant a far greater percentage of our visitors were able to have the full museum experience’ which includes access the submarine, destroyer, tall ships, exhibitions and Kids on Deck activity program. Other highlights include forging a major co-marketing partnership with 20th Century Fox for our exhibition Remembering Titanic - 100 years. The partnership allowed us to include original costumes and props from the Academy Award-winning film Titanic, giving the exhibition a major boost in popular appeal resulting in very strong visitation figures and PR in the months after opening. In 2011-12, the museum also made significant headway in digital marketing. Achievements include launching the museum’s first ever ‘app’, the H MAS Vampire tour for iPhone and Android; producing three content-rich campaign microsites which extended the digital footprint of our exhibitions; being awarded the Best Azure Site (Australig/New Zealand) at the 2012 Sitecore Site of the Year Awards (AQUA website); and producing 40 YouTube videos resulting in a 260% increase in views on our channel - 472,000 views in 2011-12 (128,000 views in 2010- 11 ).

Commercial partnerships Despite challenging economic times, the museum delivered well in excess of its budgeted cash and in-kind commercial partnerships, and surpassed the previous year’s strong revenue performance by 40 percent. In 2011-12 this more than doubled cash partnership revenue. Commercial partnerships came from at least 26 different organisations across both the private and public sector and in support of a wide range of museum programs. The Sydney Catchment Authority came aboard as Principal Partner in the museum’s summer exhibition, AQUA: a journey into the world of water, and through their learning team incorporated the H20 2U interactive family learning facility into the experience. We partnered with Orion Expeditions to offer an Antarctic voyage of a lifetime as part of the museum’s Scott's Last Expedition exhibition. Significant energy was invested in enhancing the museum’s media and marketing partnerships to ensure maximum public awareness of the museum and its programs, noted elsewhere. The many partners working with us to promote and ensure the success of the Endeavour replica’s circumnavigation of Australia appear in Appendix 16, along with our current commercial partners.

Venue hire and catering The museum’s venues and catering revenue was the highest it has been since 2006,60% up on budget, and 33% higher than the previous year. Venues visitors hit a high of 25,713, with the number of events held increasing 26% on the previous year. This outstanding result was despite the temporary inaccessibility of two main venues, the Terrace Room (due to refurbishment of the balcony during July through November) and the Theatre (booked by public programming in late September). New business growth came primarily from the July launch of the new waterfront facility, including Yots Cafe, Waterside Studio and the Ben Lexcen Terrace, and from a commitment to excellence in service and repeat business. An exclusive catering contract was awarded to Laissez-Faire Catering. At a major new launch event in July, the museum hosted special guest speaker Joanna Savill, director of the Crave /Sydney International Food Festival, and brought close to 300 new and past buyers together to focus on sustainability in events and showcase our new venues. These new venues saw enormous uptake over the October-December period particularly. Staff also focused on encouraging growth in location staging

and weddings. The museum was successful in securing high profile events such as the Magdalena Velevska Fashion Week launch, the PlayStation Fifa Game Launch and the Meeting and Events Australia Christmas party. The museum venue and caterers demonstrated dexterity by simultaneously hosting a wide range of private weddings, retirements, association events, corporate conferences, town-hall seminars, corporate gala dinners and cocktails, and product launches.

Online The museum launched a new HM Bark Endeavour website and three exhibition microsites - for AQUA, Remembering Titanic - 100 years and Fish in Australian a r t - hosted on the museum’s new website CMS Sitecore. The next phase of the website project is to migrate the entire museum website to the new platform. Over the year we increased online engagement using social media, particularly during the Endeavour replica’s circumnavigation of Australia. People across the world could follow the ship’s progress and engage directly with its crew through Facebook, Twitter and the blog. This direct communication, impractical through conventional maritime radio telephony, was important to families of travelling voyage crew concerned their loved ones were safe at sea. Museum staff have been introduced to and trained on the museum’s social media platforms, resulting in more diverse content being shared by our subject area experts, with particular focus on stories from the museum’s object collection.

Audience engagement


This unit manages the delivery, installation and commissioning of multimedia and interactives in exhibitions. A new voyages interactive, installed in our Navigators exhibition, provides a multilayered experience for visitors that features a range of stories relating to 200 years of discovery and exploration of the Australian coastline. The multi-user display allows moving, scaling and rotation of content. To tell the stories of the great navigators the museum draws on engravings, maps and atlases from the many rare books produced in association with these voyages of discovery and held in the National Maritime Collection. Displayed behind glass in museum cases, any real examination or visitor interaction with the object is impossible. Our large multi-touch display features digitised copies

Our volunteers are invaluable partners who contributed across a broad range of museum activities, from guided tours of galleries and vessels, to ship maintenance, conservation and restoration, mail-outs and office duties. Recruiting volunteer guides for the Endeavour replica's Australian circumnavigation 2011-2012 lifted both the number and value of our volunteer workforce. In addition to recurring volunteer services such as assisting with Welcome Wall unveiling ceremonies, they guided public tours on board the Duyfken 1606 replica that was at our wharves in place of Endeavour until March 2012. Volunteer amenities were improved when they occupied their new accommodations after completion of the major renovations to the main building

Audit Office INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT To the Minister for the Arts I have audited the accompanying financial statements o f the Australian National Maritime Museum and the controlled entity for the year ended 30 June 2012, which comprise: a Statement by Council Members and C hief Financial Officer; the Statement o f Comprehensive Income; Balance Sheet; Statement o f Changes in Equity; Cash Flow Statement; Schedule o f Commitments; and Notes to and forming part o f the Financial Statements, including a Summary o f Significant Accounting Policies. The consolidated entity comprises the Australian National Maritime Museum and the entity it controlled during the financial year.

Council Members ’ Responsibility fo r the Financial Statements The council members o f the Australian National Maritime Museum are responsible for the preparation o f the financial statements that give a true and fair view in accordance with the Finance Minister’s Orders made under the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997, including the Australian Accounting Standards, and for such internal control as is necessary to enable the preparation o f the financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility My responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based on my audit. I have conducted my audit in accordance with the Australian National Audit Office Auditing Standards, which incorporate the Australian Auditing Standards. These auditing standards require that I com ply with relevant ethical requirements relating to audit engagements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment o f the risks o f material misstatement o f the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Australian National Maritime Museum’s preparation o f the financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose o f expressing an opinion on the effectiveness o f the Australian National Maritime Museum’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness o f the accounting policies used and the reasonableness o f accounting estimates made by the council members, as well as evaluating the overall presentation o f the financial statements. I believe that the audit evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for my audit opinion.

3 Financial statements

Independence In conducting my audit, I have followed the independence requirements o f the Australian National Audit Office, which incorporate the requirements o f the Australian accounting profession.

Objectives The Australian National Maritime Museum is an Australian Government controlled entity. The role of the museum is to promote a broad interpretation of maritime heritage and culture, to preserve it and to bring it to life. The museum is structured to meet one outcome, being increased knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of Australia’s maritime heritage by managing the National Maritime Collection and staging programs, exhibitions and events. 1.1 Basis of Preparation of the Financial Statements The Financial Statements and notes are required by clause 1(b) of Schedule 1 to the Commonwealth Authorities and Companies Act 1997 (CAC Act) and are a General Purpose Financial Report. The Financial Statements and notes have been prepared in accordance with: • Finance Minister’s Orders (or FMOs) for reporting period ending on or after 1 July 2011 ; and • Australian Accounting Standards and Interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) that apply for the reporting period. The Financial Statements have been prepared on an accrual basis and in accordance with historical cost convention, except for certain assets at fair value. Except where stated, no allowance is made for the effect of changing prices on the results or the financial position. The Financial Statements are presented in Australian dollars and values are rounded to the nearest thousand dollars unless otherwise specified (see note 1 .21 ). Assets and liabilities are recognised in the Balance Sheet when and only when it is probable that future economic benefits will flow and the amounts of the assets or liabilities can be reliably measured. However, assets and liabilities arising under agreements equally proportionately unperformed are not recognised unless required by an Accounting Standard. Liabilities and assets that are unrealised are reported in the Schedule of Commitments and the Schedule of Contingencies. Revenues and expenses are recognised in the Income Statement when and only when the flow, consumption or loss of economic benefit has occurred and can be reliably measured.

Consolidation and associated company The Financial Statements show information for the economic entity only; this reflects the consolidated results for the parent entity, the Australian National Maritime Museum, and its wholly-owned controlled entity, The Australian National Maritime Foundation. The results of the parent entity do not differ materially from the economic entity and have therefore not been separately disclosed. The Australian National Maritime Foundation is a company limited by guarantee. See note 17. The accounting policies of The Australian National Maritime Foundation are consistent with those of the museum and its assets, liabilities and results have been consolidated with the parent entity accounts in accordance with the Accounting Standards. All internal transactions and balances have been eliminated on consolidation. 1.2 Significant Accounting Judgement and Estimates In applying the accounting policies listed in this note, judgement has been made as to the fair value that has significant impact on the amounts recorded in the financial statements. The fair value of land has been taken to be the market value of similar properties. The buildings are purpose built and were independently valued. The fair value of heritage and cultural assets has been taken to be the book value or the market value as determined by independent valuers. No accounting assumptions or estimates have been identified that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next accounting period. 1.3 New Accounting Standards Adoption of new Australian Accounting Standard Requirements No accounting standard has been adopted earlier than the application date as stated in the standard. No new accounting standards, amendments to standards and interpretations issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board that are applicable in the current period have had a material financial affect on the Australian National Maritime Museum. Future Australian Accounting Standard Requirements New standards, amendments to standards, and interpretations that are applicable to future periods have been issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board. It is estimated that adopting these pronouncements, when effective, will have no material impact on future reporting periods. 1.4 Revenue Revenue from Government Funding received or receivable from agencies (appropriated to the agency as a CAC Act body payment item for payment to the Australian National Maritime Museum) is recognised as Revenue from Government unless they are in the nature of equity injections.

3 Financial statements

Notes to and forming part of the financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2012

Other Types of Revenue Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised upon the delivery of goods to customers. Revenue from the rendering of a service is recognised by reference to the stage of completion of the contract to provide the service. The stage of completion is determined according to the proportion that costs incurred to date bear to the estimated total costs of the transaction. Receivables for goods and services are recognised at the nominal amounts due less any provision for bad and doubtful debts. Collection of debts is reviewed at balance date. Provisions are made when collection of the debt is no longer probable. 1.5


Sale of Assets Gain from disposal of non-current assets is recognised when control of the asset has passed to the buyer. Resources Received Free of Charge Resources received free of charge are recognised as gains when and only when a fair value can be reliably determined and the services would have been purchased if they had not been donated. Use of those resources is recognised as an expense. Contributions of assets at no cost of acquisition or for nominal consideration are recognised as gains at their fair value when the asset qualifies for recognition. 1.6 Transactions by the Government as Owner Equity Injections Amounts appropriated which are designated as ‘equity injections’ for a year, less any formal reductions, are recognised directly in Contributed Equity in that year (2012: $1,668 and 2011: $1,638). 1.7 Employee Benefits Benefits Liabilities for services rendered by employees are recognised at the reporting date to the extent that they have not been settled. Liabilities for short-term employee benefits (as defined in AASB 119) and termination benefits due within 12 months of balance date are measured at their nominal amounts. The nominal amount is calculated'with regard to the rates expected to be paid on settlement of the liability. All other employee benefit liabilities are measured at the present value of the estimated future cash outflows to be made in respect of services provided by employees up to the reporting date. Leave The liability for employee benefits includes provision for annual leave and long service leave. No provision has been made for sick leave as all sick leave is non-vesting and the average sick leave taken in future years by employees is estimated to be less than the annual entitlement for sick leave.

3 Financial statements

Notes to and forming part of the financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2012

The leave liabilities are calculated on the basis of employees’ remuneration, including employer superannuation contribution rates to the extent that the leave is likely to be taken during service rather than paid out on termination. The non-current portion of the liability for long service leave is recognised and measured at the present value of the estimated future cash flows to be made in respect of all employees at 30 June 2012. In determining the present value of the liability, the museum has taken into account attrition rates and pay increases through promotion and inflation. Superannuation Staff of the museum are members of the Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme (CSS), the Public Sector Superannuation Scheme (PSS) or the PSS accumulation plan (PSSap). The CSS and PSS are defined benefit schemes and the PSSap is a defined contributions scheme. The liability for defined benefits is recognised in the financial statements of the Australian Government and is settled by the Australian Government in due course. The museum makes employer contributions to the employee superannuation schemes at rates determined by an actuary to be sufficient to meet the cost to the Government of the superannuation entitlements of the museum’s employees. The museum accounts for the contributions as if they were contributions to defined contribution plans. 1.8 Leases A distinction is made between finance leases, which 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 museum has no finance leases. Operating lease payments are expensed on a basis that is representative of the pattern of benefits derived from the leased assets. 1.9 Grants The museum recognises grant liabilities as follows. Most grant agreements require the grantee to perform services or provide facilities, or to meet eligibility criteria. In these cases, liabilities are recognised only to the extent that the services required have been performed or the eligibility criteria have been satisfied by the grantee. In cases where grant agreements are made without conditions to be monitored, liabilities are recognised on signing of the agreement. 1.10 Cash Cash and cash equivalents include notes and coins held and any deposits in bank accounts with an original maturity of 3 months or less, which are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and subject to insignificant risk of changes in value. Cash is recognised at its nominal amount. 1.11 Financial Assets Classification of financial assets depends on the nature and purpose of the financial assets and is determined at the time of recognition. The museum classifies its financial assets as loans and receivables.

3 Financial statements

Notes to and forming part of the financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2012

Trade receivables, loans and other receivables that have fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market are classified as loans and receivables and are included in current assets. Loans and receivables are measured at nominal cost less impairment. The museum has no loans. 1.12 Financial Liabilities The museum classifies its financial liabilities as other financial liabilities. Suppliers and other payables are classified as other financial liabilities and are recognised at their nominal amounts, being the amounts at which the liabilities will be settled. Liabilities are recognised to the extent that the goods and services have been received and irrespective of having been invoiced. 1.13

Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets

Contingent liabilities and contingent assets are not recognised in the balance sheet but are reported in the relevant schedules and notes. They may arise from uncertainty as to the existence of a liability or asset or represent an asset or liability in respect of which the amount cannot be reliably measured. Contingent assets are disclosed when settlement is probable but not virtually certain and contingent liabilities are disclosed when settlement is greater than remote. 1.14 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. Financial assets are initially measured at their fair value plus transaction costs where appropriate. Assets acquired at no cost, or for nominal consideration, are initially recognised as assets and revenues, at their fair value at the date of acquisition. 1.15

Property, Plant and Equipment

Asset Recognition Threshold Purchases of property, plant and equipment are recognised initially at cost in the Balance Sheet, except for purchases costing less than $2,000, which are expensed in the year of acquisition other than where they form part of a group of similar items which are significant in total. Revaluations Property, plant and equipment are carried at fair value, being revalued with sufficient frequency such that the carrying amount of each asset is not materially different, at reporting date, from its fair value. The regularity of independent valuations depends upon the volatility of movements in market values for the relevant assets. Valuations undertaken in each year are at 30 June. Fair values for each class of assets are determined as shown below. Asset Class Land Buildings Infrastructure, Plant & Equipment Heritage and Cultural Assets

3 Financial statements

Fair Value Measured at Market appraisal Market appraisal Market appraisal Market appraisal

Notes to and forming part of the financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2012

Revaluation adjustments are made on a class basis. Any revaluation increment is credited to equity under the heading of asset revaluation reserve except to the extent that it reverses a previous revaluation decrement of the same asset class that was previously recognised through operating result. Revaluation decrements for a class of assets are recognised directly through operating result except to the extent that they reverse a previous revaluation increment for that class. Any accumulated depreciation as at the revaluation date is eliminated against the gross carrying amount of the asset and the asset restated to the relevant amount. Under fair value, assets which are surplus to requirements are measured at their net realisable value. Depreciation and Amortisation Depreciable property, plant and equipment assets are written off to their estimated residual values over their estimated useful lives using, in all cases, the straight line method of depreciation. Depreciation and amortisation rates, residual values and methods are reviewed at each reporting date and necessary adjustments are recognised in the current, or current and future reporting periods, as appropriate. Depreciation and amortisation rates applying to each class of depreciable asset are based on the following useful lives: Leasehold land Buildings Infrastructure, Plant & Equipment

2012 105 years 15-50 years 3-20 years

2011 105 years

22-100 years 3 -20 years

The Museum has made a provisional assessment of the remaining useful lives of its buildings and has estimated that the main exhibition building has a remaining life of 30 years at 30 June 2012. This estimate will be subject to further review by the Finance, Audit, Capital Works, Assets and Systems Committee during the upcoming year. Heritage and Cultural assets The Australian National Maritime Museum collects, manages and displays cultural and heritage assets of Australian maritime history. These assets are classified as Heritage and Cultural assets as they are primarily used for purposes that relate to cultural significance. A key objective of the Australian National Maritime Museum is the preservation of Heritage and Cultural assets and details in relation to the museum's curatorial, preservation and conservation policies are posted on the museum's web site. With effect from 1 July 2012, the museum’s Heritage and Cultural assets will be depreciated according to the assessment of useful lives. Impairment All assets were assessed for impairment at 30 June 2012. Where indications of impairment exist, the asset’s recoverable amount is estimated and impairment adjustment made if the asset's recoverable amount is less than its carrying amount (2012: $ nil and 2011: $153).

The recoverable amount of an asset is the higher of its fair value less costs to sell and its value in use. Value in use is the present value of the future cash flows expected to be derived from the asset. Where the future economic benefit of an asset is not primarily dependant on the asset’s ability to generate future cash flows, and the asset would be replaced if the museum were deprived of the asset, its value in use is taken at market appraisal. 1.16


Intangibles comprise software for internal use and are carried at cost less accumulated amortisation. Software is amortised on a straight-line basis over its anticipated useful life. The useful lives of the museum’s software are 5-10 years (2011: 5-10 years). 1.17 Inventories Inventories held for resale by the museum store are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. 1.18 Taxation The museum is exempt from all forms of taxation except Fringe Benefits Tax and the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Revenues, expenses and assets are recognised net of GST: • except where the amount of GST incurred is not recoverable from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO); and • except for receivables and payables. 1.19

Foreign Currency

Transactions denominated in a foreign currency are converted at the exchange rate at the date of the 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 material. 1.20 Comparative Figures Comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation in these financial statements where required. 1.21 Rounding Amounts are rounded to the nearest $1,000 except in relation to: • remuneration of Council members (note 10); • remuneration of senior executives (note 12); • remuneration of auditors (note 13); • assets held in trust (note 15); and • Australian National Maritime Foundation (note 17). 2.


Departmental There was no subsequent event that had a potential to significantly affect the on­ going structure and financial activities of the entity.

This table reports substantive senior executives who received remuneration during the reporting period. Each row is an averaged figure based on headcount for individuals in the band. 'Reportable salary' includes the following: a) gross payments (less any bonuses paid, which are separated out and disclosed in the 'bonus paid' column); b) reportable fringe benefits (at the net amount prior to 'grossing up' to account for tax benefits); c) accrued leave paid out on resignation; and d) exempt foreign employment income. The 'contributed superannuation' amount is the average actual superannuation contributions paid to senior executives in that reportable remuneration band during the reporting period, including any salary sacrificed amounts, as per the individuals' payslips. 'Reportable allowances' are the average actual allowances paid as per the 'total allowances' line on individuals' payment summaries 'Bonus paid' represents average actual bonuses paid during the reporting period in that reportable remuneration band. The 'bonus paid' within a particular band may vary between financial years due to various factors such as individuals commencing with or leaving the entity during the financial year. Various salary sacrifice arrangements were available to other highly paid staff including superannuation, motor vehicle and expense payment fringe benefits. Salary sacrifice benefits are reported in the 'reportable salary' column, excluding salary sacrificed superannuation, which is reported in the 'contributed superannuation' column

14C: Net Income and Expense from Financial Liabilities There is no net interest income or expense from financial liabilities not at fair value through profit or loss in the year ending 30 June 2012. (2011: nil) 14D: Fair Value of Financial Instruments The carrying amounts of the financial instruments approximate their fair values. 14E: Credit Risk The museum is exposed to minimum credit risk as the majority of the loans and receivables are cash and deposits at call. The maximum exposure to credit risk is the risk that arises from potential default of a trade debtor. This amount is equal to the total receivable for goods and services (2012: $76,915 and 2011: $74,410). The museum has no significant exposures to any concentrations of credit risk and has policies and procedures which outline debt recovery techniques. The ageing of financial assets that are past due but not impaired is equal to the ageing of receivables and is stated in note 5B.

14F: Liquidity Risk The majority of the museum’s financial liabilities are trade creditors and prepayments received. The exposure to liquidity risk is based on the probability that the museum will encounter difficulty in meeting its obligations associated with financial liabilities. This risk is minimal due to appropriation funding and internal policies and procedures which ensure that there are appropriate resources to meet financial obligations. 14G: Market Risk The museum holds basic financial instruments that do not expose the museum to ‘currency risk’ or 'other price risk’. The museum is exposed to ‘interest rate risk’ which arises from the investment in short term cash and deposits with fixed and floating interest rates. This amount is equal to the total of cash at bank and deposits at call (2012: $21,411,152 and 2011: $25,985,251). 15.

Selected acquisitions to the National Maritime Collection Artworks, prints, photographs and posters Jitterbugging, American servicemen and Australian girls, 1943 This drawing by war artist Oliffe Richmond illustrates the romantic relationships formed between American servicemen and Australian women during World War 2. Surf board riders, Honolulu, c. 1916 This print was produced by Australian-born American artist Ambrose Patterson in about 1916. Patterson spent time in Hawaii and opened a studio in Lanikai. He produced many highly-prized block prints depicting island life. Hollow Log Story, Peter Minygululu, 2002 This bark painting features the post death ritual of placing the bones of the deceased inside a painted hollow log. The log represents the human body; the bones represent the soul. The log is carried or danced to its final resting site, fixed upright in the ground and left to decay. The painting also shows various totems, including the double headed python, barramundi and witchetty grubs, against a backdrop of crosshatched clan markings. The Rockhole Site of Umari, Yuyuya Nampitjina, 2008 Rockholes are important sites, not only because they provide a source of water in otherwise inhospitable regions, but also as spiritual and cultural places. The Papunya Tula artists explain that their paintings come from the Dreaming, where natural features like sandhills and rockholes mark out the journeys of ancestral beings. The Dreaming explains how these formations came into being. Paintings are both part of the Dreaming and the physical world. This work features the rockholes of Umari in the sandhill country east of Mount Webb in Western Australia. The holes are surrounded by sandhills (tali) and the dozens of small circles depict the desert raisin or bush tomato (kampurarrpa) collected at the site. Dhangalal Pui Maibigal (Dugong bones and sorcerers), Dennis Nona, 2011 Dugong were an integral part of life throughout the Torres Strait. They were an important food source and the subject of ceremony and folk lore. In this etching, three sorcerers are depicted perched on a canoe shape formed from the bones of a dugong. The sorcerers were able to ‘sing the dugongs in’, making the hunter’s task easier. They also

performed rituals and ceremonies relating to the dugong. Killing a dugong was a highly regarded skill passed on through hunters' families over generations. The Dardanelles Torpedo Exploit: Submarine f ill's Fine Feat, 1914 A photo essay from The Illustrated London News of 19 December 1914, with diagrams and photographs of B l l ’s exploits in the Dardanelles and an inset photograph of the submarine’s young Lieutenant Commander, Norman Holbrook. B l l ’s story was one of the most intrepid and canny to emerge from the Allied campaign in Gallipoli - the submarine penetrated Ottoman defences in the Dardanelles and successfully torpedoed the Turkish ship Messudiyeh. Holbrook was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions. The NSW town of Holbrook is named after this submariner. Four lithographs showing salvage work on the Royal George off Spithead, UK, 1848-49 Diver George Hall is credited with leading and also teaching Royal Navy engineers and sappers how to dive during the salvage of the Royal George in 1848. The successful use of the Augustus Siebe standard dress diving apparatus by Hall in 1848 signalled the beginning of the age of the commercial diver and the opening up of the oceans and inland waterways to all manner of underwater commercial activities, including salvage, engineering, bridge and tunnel construction, ship repair and pearling. Encampment of native women near Jervis Bay; Natives of Encounter Bay making cord for fishing nets, 1847 These engravings show Indigenous people on the coast of South Australia in 1846, when Europeans were coming into increasing contact with them. The impact of this can be seen in the clothing they are wearing, as well as objects such as a bottle. The Crossing, two colour landscape photographs by Renee Nowytarger, 2002 These photographs depict Afghan refugee women edging over a ship’s loading ramp off the coast of Nauru in 2001. The women were rescued by the Norwegian cargo ship MV Tampa, transferred to HMAS Manoora, and then taken to the Pacific island of Nauru. The images depict the final leg of a journey that ended with a new life in New Zealand. These photographs document the experiences of Middle-Eastern refugees during one of the most controversial incidents in

Australia’s immigration history and capture the human face of this pivotal event. They illustrate government policies in action and will provide emotive and striking visuals in future exhibitions that explore the experiences of recent boat people. Views of surfing at the beach and relaxing at the seaside, 1880-1906 Published by the UK’s The Guardian, these two illustrations show contrasting views of the beach and leisure in the late-19th to early-20th centuries. Brighton Beach in Victoria is represented in 1880 as a passive seaside site for picnics and a promenade, while the 1906 photogravure of Manly in New South Wales represents the active beach, reflecting the popularity of body surfing - or shooting the breakers as it was then known - and of mixed bathing after the turn of the 20th century. Photographs of Melbourne waterfront early 1980s, These seven sheets of photographic negatives of black and white images of Melbourne waterside workers were taken in September 1981 by Lyn McLeavy for the 1982 book by Wendy Lowenstein, Under the Hook: Melbourne Waterside Workers Remember -1900-1980. It is a rare collection that documents the last years of the Melbourne waterfront before its massive transformation. It also provides a photographic record of significant individuals in waterside worker history, some of whom were involved in the infamous 1928 police action, when police opened fire on strikers and a union member, Alan Whittaker, was killed. Set of six painted glass panels, c 1887 These six painted glass panels are said to have come from the P&O head offices in London. Each depicts harbour scenes and views painted in sepia and yellow tones, in a circle surrounded by decorative leaf and scroll work. Each has a cartouche with the title of the scene: ‘Sydney Harbour’, ‘Melbourne’, ‘Perth’, ‘Liverpool’, ‘Southampton’ and ‘Sandringham’. ‘Natator’ the man fish in his celebrated sub aqueous performances, 1870s-80s This theatrical poster advertises a performance of Charles Weightman, known as ‘Natator the Fish Man’. A popular entertainer, Weightman performed aquatic feats in Europe and America in the 1860s, before travelling to Australia and New Zealand, where he performed in the 1870s and early 1880s.

Documents, manuscripts and publications Historie van Indien, waer inne verhaelt is avonturen die de Hollantse schepen bejegentzijn, T Eerste Boeck, 1617 This book is based on the journal of Willem Lodewijksz, a clerk on board the Mauritius, flagship of the first Dutch fleet to voyage to the East Indies between 1595 and 1596. The voyage paved the way for further Dutch expeditions and

ultimately led to the formation of the United Dutch East India Company, one of the great European trading companies. Notes of a cruise in HMS Fawn in the Western Pacific, T H Hood, 1862-1863 This book recounts the 1862 voyage of British Royal Navy vessel Fawn to New Zealand, Polynesia and Melanesia while deployed to the Australia Station. The book notes various ethnographic and anthropological attributes and practices of the Indigenous populations and is beautifully illustrated with three black-and-white plates, seven black-and-white inter text illustrations and nine full-page (landscape) tinted lithographic plates. Conditional pardons and indent paper, 1830-40 Transportation overseas was a relatively common punishment in the 18th and 19th centuries. These documents relate to the transportation of five petty criminals to Van Diemen’s Land between 1830 and 1840. Tourist class deck plan for P&O liner TSS Strathnaver, showing passenger accommodation, 1933-34 This tourist class deck plan shows passenger accommodations on the P & 0 liner TSS Strathnaver. It also includes black-and-white photographs of lounge rooms, dining rooms, nursery and two- and four-berth cabins. Licence for the carriage by sea of native labourers This licence was issued to Captain Thomas Hepple Robson of the Delmira, to carry not more than 80 Kanaka labourers from the island of Nui to Malden island and to re-convey from Malden island to Nui 100 Kanaka labourers'. It was issued under The Pacific Islanders Protection Acts 1872 and 1875 in an attempt to stamp out the kidnapping of workers. The moves were sparked by the significant public outcry over the infamous 1871 case against the crew of the barque Carl, who abducted a group of Fijians after disguising themselves as missionaries and then killed 60 islanders in the hold of the vessel to destroy the ‘evidence’. The captain of the Barque Carl was later sentenced to death. The indentured labour trade conducted in the South Pacific in the late 19th century by Australian vessels and companies is not widely known, yet was highly significant at the time as it was regarded as Australia’s version of the slave trade.
