Longer Voyages This Summer

Lady Nelson will sail with other Tall Ships either side of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival, follow this link for details.


Based at the beautiful, picturesque waterfront of Hobart and just minutes' walk from the centre of town, the full size replica of the original Deptford built Brig is a popular sight with locals and tourists alike.

The Lady Nelson sails majestically up and down the River Derwent to the joy and delight of her passengers who are offered the opportunity to enjoy a tall ship sailing experience. Passengers are able to help set sails, take a turn at the helm or just enjoy the feel of a traditional sailing ship at sea.

She sails on the harbour each weekend and is also available for private charters.

For the more adventurous folk Sail Away Weekends are held periodically. Leaving Friday night and returning Sunday, these aim to provide the complete sailing experience and showcase Tasmania's superb food and wine.
