Web host's recording of the number of unique page hits to this site.
October 2011 - Last 2 years this site has enjoyed 3+ Million hits, a massive increas from 1.7 million back in 2011
Flotilla-Australia site has evolved from being the most visited website in the Southern Hemisphere and into one of the 'Top Three' of the most visited Global Maritime Websites
Amazingly - No Advertisers have come forth nor, donations from appreciative visitors and so, my pocket keeps this Free Website active




Flotilla-Australia website recognises vessels 'with' engine propulsion, whether or not they also had sails.
It took a ship to discover AUSTRALIA , and since, many great vessels fully Australian built and owned have been plying our coastal ports and international waters. Those aboard, as crew, officers and passengers have their own memories and, where a picture is worth a thousand words, so then each image shown on this site have a story. This site itself is incomplete, as information is scarce, but with viewers' contributions, this site can evolve into a brilliant online historical record, in picture and word, of Australia's shipping history. Note here that passenger and merchant vessels, from Steam power onwards, are the mainstay of this site, as pure naval vessels are very well covered by dedicated naval historians in other sites. See LINKS. Further, images of the ships viewed here, where known, are mostly recognised and accredited to their source. Where readers make a contribution, full acknowledgement will be given with thanks! Links to relevant websites will also be given full consideration.
ENJOY !
