Australian Wooden Boat Festival
Join us in Hobart, the home of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival - a spectacular four day celebration of maritime culture and craftsmanship. Over 500 boats and wooden craft of all shapes and sizes will congregate on the city's historic waterfront.
This amazing scene of colour and activity provides the perfect setting for an extensive program of dockside entertainment, music, demonstrations, and displays. Opening with the wonderful Parade of Sail on Friday, there is action aplenty on the water throughout the weekend.
Come and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this unique event which offers more than just a taste of Tasmania's best food and beverages. From model boat sailing to clambering around a tall ship; from watching shipwrights at work to cheering on the community boat building teams; there is just so much to see and do!
The biggest maritime event of its kind in the southern hemisphere, the Australian Wooden Boat Festival brings together the best of Australia in the heart of Tasmania. See you in Hobart!
