For the second time in a row we are more than delighted to participate in the ANMM’s Classic & Wooden Boat Festival this year. The festival is running from Friday 13 April to Sunday 15 April and open from 10am – 5pm with free entry!

Enjoy the festival with free entertainment including live music, maritime demonstrations, harbour cruises and kids’ activities. There will be markets, food trucks, an art exhibition, a boat building competition, a swimwear fashion parade and much more. Join in the fun and discover a hand-crafted, hand-polished world where craftsmanship still reigns supreme.

This year our very own Harman & Berrima will be offering free trips around the harbour. While on board James Craig we will be strapping bodies in harnesses for a jib-boom climb for $30. As for displays, our beautiful Boomerang and Protex will be berthed in Darling Harbour doing what they do best, showing off!

There are also free talks, check out the ‘OUT OF THE WATER’ TALK FEST Program
