MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival 10-13 Feb Hobart, Tasmania, Australia Welcome to the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival, an exciting celebration of our nation’s rich maritime culture and one of the world’s most anticipated maritime events. Held across Hobart’s vibrant and bustling waterfront, the four-day festival brings together the largest and most beautiful collection of wooden boats in Australia. From its humble beginnings in 1994, it has grown to become the largest wooden boat festival in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting more than 550 wooden boats and 220,000 visitors, held every two years over the long summer weekend. You’ll enjoy a lively program of exhibitions, races, activities for children and a wonderful entertainment program. There’s the Maritime Marketplace, with more than 80 exhibitors with everything nautical from anchors to pennants and great how-to workshops. Our Open Boat scheme gets you aboard some of the most famous racing yachts in the country, beautiful cruisers and family boats, tall ships and working boats. You’ll enjoy superb Tasmanian food and wine, attend the International Wooden Boat Symposium, take in an art exhibition or just sit on the waterfront and watch the maritime world pass by. Best of all, with the assistance of the Events Tasmania and our generous sponsors, admission to the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival is absolutely free! There is no admission charge, no tickets and no gates. Just wander in and enjoy yourself. There’s lots to see and do in Tasmania for the boat enthusiast, so allow enough time to enjoy the festival and then explore the beautiful cruising grounds of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel or the bustling wooden boat centre of Franklin, 45 minutes south of Hobart.
