This is a great experience for the whole family - the kids especially enjoyed helping 'hoist the sails,' and pretended to sleep on the bunks on the lower deck. This is a really authentic historical experience, and it's amazing that it's all run by volunteers....More

We took the one hour cruise from Williamstown Pier. The vessel is crewed by volunteers who are friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable about the ship and early Melbourne. I'd happily recommend this activity.

You see Tall ships on TV, but being on one and seeing the low tech side was eye opening. Climbing the rigging was exciting and helping raise the sails hard work. So much fun.
