2020 Ocean Talks Series

From chasing sea monsters, ocean science discoveries and indigenous stories – there's something for everyone in our dynamic talk series.


Our monthly talk series Ocean Talks features a range of fascinating marine experts, scientists, authors, filmmakers and adventurers who will challenge everything you know about the depths (and shallows) of earth’s oceans. 


Our oceans are at a critical point in history, and the maritime museum has never had a more vital role in marine conservation, exploration and sharing the wonder and mystery of our oceans. Our new series of talks offers a unique experience to immerse yourself in the cutting edge of marine science, provocative art, and controversial thought leadership – all up close and personal.


Ocean Talks tickets include light refreshments and a chance to chat with the speakers in the Tasman Light Gallery after the event, plus exclusive access to corresponding exhibitions and displays in the hour before the talks (5-6pm).
