What’s On

2023 Australian Wooden Boat Festival

The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is held every two years and the next one's coming up in February 2023. Hobart's historic waterfront will come alive with the colour and excitement of our rich maritime culture and history. 

Planning is underway for it and you will see hundreds of wooden boats, from magnificent tall ships to classic sailboats, rugged working boats to superbly detailed models. You'll have a chance to talk to the owners and builders, the craftspeople and sailors, and shipwrights who still practice traditional skills every day. 

Free, fun and family friendly. Sign up to our newsletter HERE to receive the latest news as we start our planning for 2023.

10th - 13th February 2023!
