Geelong's early story is of the sea with passenger arrivals and departures or trade, scientific and naval activities.

The Geelong Maritime Museum at Osborne House displays a mix of sailing ships and submarines, naval heroes and navigation aids. There are photographs, large-scale ship models flags, uniforms, items from shipwrecks and medals. For MHHV members, of especial interest is the information on wartime naval battles and Geelong's early maritime history from 1838. Osborne House was Australia's first Naval College in 1913-14 and a submarine base in 1920-22.
