The Museum of Tropical Queensland is a museum of natural history, archaeology and history located in Townsville, Queensland, Australia.
The museum has artifacts recovered from the very famous wreck of HMS Pandora, one of the most significant wrecks in Australian waters. The Pandora sank off the coast of north Queensland in 1791 after capturing some of the participants in the infamous mutiny on the Bounty. The Maritime Archaeology Section administers the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976, which covers sites including HMS Pandora and SS Yongala wrecks. Access to these sites is through permit only.
In 2006, worldwide attention was received for the discovery of the Australian Snubfin Dolphin, the first species of dolphin to be discovered in 56 years.
The museum also houses what has been described as ‘the scientifically most important coral collection in the world.
