Heritage Tours at the Mission to Seafarers in Melbourne
Mission to Seafarers
717 Flinders St Docklands
The architecturally significant 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. An hour long tour is led by our experienced and knowledgable volunteers. Step inside and hear the remarkable stories of the Mission to Seafarers, discover the original use of the Norla Dome and visit the Chapel. Take a look at the maritime artefacts in the Heritage Centre and explore the latest exhibition Encountering People, Places and Things: A Historical and Contemporary Photographic Narrative. Relax in the hidden garden or Spanish-style courtyard with a coffee or glass of wine. Ticket sales and all proceeds go directly towards the Mission to Seafarers.
