The festival is entirely free to the public, thanks to generous support from sponsors, volunteers and government. We would like to keep it that way, but the cost of producing the event goes up every year. We need cash to pay for a thousand different things, required to keep the festival clean, safe and fun for all concerned. Please consider making a donation to help us do that. We ask just once every two years and we never pester you for more. The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is a registered not-for-profit organisation with an all-volunteer board of directors. Donating is easy and secure – just use PayPal with your credit or debit card, or a direct bank transfer.
