Promoting “Meet The Maker Discovery Tours ….

February 12, 2018

The following information has been taken from several Alma Doepel Supporters Club Newsletters edited by Bill Reid. The information describes and promotes the exhibition detailing Alma Doepel’s role during the Second  World War.  An very interesting tour if you can make the time to visit.  

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The “Victoria Remembers” AK82 Exhibition, funded by the Victorian Government, is uncovering stories and images of Alma during WW2 and it is expected to be ready by February for tours commencing from Library at the Dock. This project will invoke strong community interest in the role Alma Doepel played during WW2 transporting supplies and troops in the New Guinea and New Britain campaigns. 

The Immigration Museum has kindly donated items from the Long Room exhibition that is currently being replaced by an exciting new exhibition. The bunk beds, paneling and pieces of furniture from the exhibition will now play a new role on board Alma Doepel. The “Victoria Remembers” AK82 Exhibition, funded by the Victorian Government, is uncovering stories and images of Alma during WW2 and it is expected to be ready by February for tours commencing from Library at the Dock. This project will invoke strong community interest in the role Alma Doepel played during WW2 transporting supplies and troops in the New Guinea and New Britain campaigns.
