The Australian Wooden Boat Festival 2021 held across Hobart’s vibrant and bustling waterfront, the four-day festival brings together the largest and most beautiful collection of wooden boats in the southern hemisphere. From its humble beginnings in 1994, it has grown to become the most significant event of its kind in Australia.

Our experienced crew will welcome you on board. We are looking forward sharing this big event with you.
