Heritage Tours of the Mission to Seafarers

Are you curious to discover what's inside the heritage-listed Mission to Seafarers in Melbourne's Docklands?
Explore this architecturally significant building in a free hour-long tour led by our experienced and knowledgeable volunteers.

The Mission to Seafarers building is iconic to the City of Melbourne and is considered a fine urban example of a merging of the ‘Arts and Crafts’ and ‘Spanish Mission Revival’ architectural styles in Melbourne.
Step inside and hear the remarkable stories of the Mission to Seafarers, learn about Melbourne’s maritime history, and discover the original use of the Norla Dome (you’ll be surprised).
Visit the Chapel and marvel at the stunning stained-glass windows, and peak inside long lost nooks and crannies.
And for anyone curious to find out if their family is a descendant of those who arrived with the First Fleet in 1788, the First Fleet Fellowship of Victoria will also be in attendance and delighted to provide information and help trace your lineage.
