Showcasing vessels from around Sydney and Australia and celebrating Maritime Heritage.
Help us celebrate the beauty and diversity of Australia’s heritage vessels and their craftspeople. Over 100 boats will be on display at the Museum and in Cockle Bay Marina including Halvorsens, yachts and skiffs, classic speedboats, steam launches, tug boats, whalers and Navy workboats from all around Australia.
Enjoy free entertainment throughout the weekend including live music, maritime demonstrations, harbour cruises and kids activities.
