Australian Wooden Boat Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

8 Feb 2019 to 11 Feb 2019

Join us in Hobart, the home of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival – a spectacular four day celebration of maritime culture and craftsmanship, which is the biggest maritime event of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Held every two years, the Festival brings together over 500 boats and wooden craft of all shapes and sizes will congregate on the city’s historic waterfront.
This amazing scene of colour and activity provides the perfect setting for an extensive program of dockside entertainment, music, demonstrations, and displays. Opening with the wonderful Parade of Sail on Friday, there is action aplenty on the water throughout the weekend.
The unique event also features a taste of Tasmania’s best food and beverages. From model boat sailing to clambering around a tall ship; from watching shipwrights at work to cheering on the community boat building teams; there is just so much to see and do!
