World Ship Society (Victoria) Inc  

The World Ship Society (Victoria) Inc. is based in Victoria, Australia and is one of the many world wide branches of the World Ship Society which had its origins in the UK in 1946. It is an organization for anyone interested in ships and shipping history.

The Victoria Branch was formed in 1957 and currently has over 130 members. The Branch arranges visits to ships, excursions to photograph ships and other activities of interest to members. The Branch meets monthly and publishes a monthly newsletter.

If you are interested in our activities why not come along to one of our meetings and meet people with the same interests as you. If you live too far from Melbourne to come to a meeting, our monthly Newsletter will keep you informed of both the Branch activities and shipping around the state.

Clicking on any of the headings on the left will provide further information about the Branch. The Articles heading connects to items of maritime interest which may be read by visitors to this site.

If you have a query regarding shipping, or a particular ship, connected with Victoria, one of our members might be able to help you. Go to our Contact Us page and send an email. Your query will be presented to our members, and given their vast interests and knowledge, there is every chance we can find an answer.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
