Classic & Wooden Boat Festival
The Australian National Maritime Museum presents the Classic & Wooden Boat Festival. A huge range of boats will be on display including Halvorsen crusiers, yachts and skiffs, classic speedboats, steam launches and workboats from all around Australia. Also featured will be the stunning 1924 luxury ketch Hurrica V, featured in Baz Luhrmann’s film “The Great Gatsby”, and SY Ena, a magnificent steam yacht now in the museum’s collection, both originally built in Sydney. Kids can enjoy a host of arts and crafts activities in the ‘kid’s boatshed’.
