Save the date: Wooden boat festival
These days, events are like mirages that beckon in the distance, only to fade and reappear. But here’s one date to hang on to.
The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is on once again in beautiful Hobart, Tasmania. Spanning 1.2km on Sullivan’s Cove, the event hosts over 500 wooden boats of all shapes and sizes, a huge commercial exhibitors hall, the best of Tasmanian food and beverages, a Shipwright’s village of craftspeople, a symposium of speakers and forums, all run by a team of 500 volunteers and colourful characters.
Australia and New Zealand will be celebrated as feature nations for the 2023 Australian Wooden Boat Festival. There will be visitors and vessels from across the ditch, as well as representatives of each state/territory in Australia, and an Indigenous craft program.
Scheduled for February 10–13, 2023 it's quite a way off, but here's an event to at least dream of. Learn more at at this link
