The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is held every two years and is not only one of the largest in the world, but recognised as the largest wooden boat festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
The festival comprises a huge turnout of wooden boats from all over the world as well as demonstrations, displays, live entertainment, music, arts, exhibitions, and activities, not to mention the stunning Parade of Sail on the River Derwent.
It is run almost entirely by volunteers and remains open to the public free of charge.
Denman Marine is proud to be returning to the Australian Wooden Boat Festival this year. If you happen to be attending, we would love for you to drop by our booth for a chat. Our stall will be at the Maritime Marketplace in PW1, site 50-51.
For further details on the event, see the Australian Wooden Boat Festival Program and website. We look forward to seeing you there.
