East Coast Adventures 2019

Sail on the Lady Nelson Hobart to the spectacular East Coast in 2019

Help sail the ship, climb the rigging or just relax and enjoy the spectacular Tasmanian coastline, scenery and wildlife.

The Lady Nelson is a 52 foot 'brig' (tall ship rigged with square sails on 2 masts) that comfortably sleeps 18 and includes a fully equipped galley, saloon for meals, toilets and hot showers.

A replica of the original H.M.S Lady Nelson that brought the first settlers to Tasmannia in 1804, you can have an experience sailing a fully rigged tall ship like they did 100 years ago but with all the safety and comfort of a modern ship.
