Getting Involved

2023 AWBF

The Australian Wooden Boat Festival welcomes registration by wooden boats of all shapes and sizes. From Tall Ships to model boats, boats driven by steam, by sail, by oar and by engine, all take their place ashore or afloat. 

As well as providing wooden boat owners with the chance to present their beautiful craft, the Australian Wooden Boat Festival offers excellent opportunities for trade exhibitors to showcase their products and services to the public through involvement in an event with a significant local, national and international profile. 

If you would like to host an event at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, we'll be happy to help you plan your reception, party, luncheon or cruise with many options available. Want to sponsor a specific event or group? Contact us to discuss the many possibilities.

If you are a wooden boat enthusiast, looking for a volunteer experience with a difference and/or have the time and skills to share with us - we would love to hear from you! Volunteer tasks range from assisting at project leader level, to helping out on an ad hoc basis with smaller tasks. We need volunteers to run the festival.

Get in touch with us via emailing officemanager@awbf.org.au and let us know what you are interested in doing.
