The Oberon class Submarine HMAS Ovens is an authentic Cold War-era vessel situated on Fremantle's historic World War Two submarine slipway, just outside the Maritime Museum.

Temporarily closed

HMAS Ovens is about to begin its face lift and make-over and will be temporarily closed as of 9 January 2023. During this time, take a fascinating 360° virtual tour of Ovens and visit the Ovens webpage for further information on the temporary closure.
