Melbourne Maritime Heritage Network (MMHN) operates as a ‘network’ structured to capture the expertise and enthusiasm of the diverse maritime stakeholders in this State, including individual, groups and organisations.

MMHN members will collectively achieve a re-focus by government and wider public recognition that maritime industry – past, present and future – is of critical importance to our State and national prosperity.

There is a lot of work to be done to achieve this, so if you have any skills or particular interests and want to be involved in MMHN we want to hear from you! Everyone is welcome to join a MMNH Special Advisory Group or special MMHN project or task. Simply contact MMHN by email:



Membership of the MMHN is open to all. We have three categories of membership:

  • Individual membership: $30 / year
  • Not-for-profit association, $50 / year
  • Corporate membership, $300 /year

Membership subscriptions are renewed annually on the anniversary of joining.
Please contact us if you wish to change or cancel your membership.

MMHN has recently introduced a Heritage Partner Program.
