Sailing in the Cooler Months

The Lady Nelson continues to sail through the cooler months although we do take a few weeks off for annual maintenance and some crew training.  However, we will be sailing most weekends (check with our office).  Sailing times usuallu 1100 and 1300 (11 AM and 1PM)

You may want to consider getting a group together for a weekend away.  This can be up to 10 people fully catered (food) for a weekend.  Departure from Hobart on Friday evening (or Early Saturday morning) getting back to Hobart on Sunday afternoon.  The cost works out to be only $300 per person for a group of ten friends.    Contact the Lady Nelson office for more details.


l. Please see the Harbour Sails page for more information.




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.
