HMAS Castlemaine is one of the sixty Australian-built Bathurst Class corvettes to serve throughout World War 2, and is the last one still afloat. She has been restored by volunteers over four decades. During World War 2, she travelled some 117,000 miles (216,000 kilometres). In the process she circumnavigated Australia and enduring the constant threat of sea and air attacks, visited China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Solomon Islands.

HMAS Castlemaine was built in Williamstown and launched on the 7th of August 1941 - so it is quite appropriate that she is permanently berthed at Gem Pier in Williamstown.
