A replica of a section of the captain’s cabin of the sail ship Batavia, a Dutch East Indianman
Part of the exhibition of the recovered wreck of the Batavia which was wrecked in 1629 on Morning Reef in the Wallabi Group of the Abrolhas Islands. At the top of the timbers can be seen an opened portal.
This section of the Batavia is preserved in a section of the Western Australian Maritime Museum in Fremantle WA.
Definitely worth a walk around this exhibit and to see the huge beams in their rough state which formed the inside of the ship
