Australian Wooden Boat Festival – Hobart, Tasmania, Aust.

Held across Hobart’s vibrant and bustling waterfront, the four-day festival brings together the largest and most beautiful collection of wooden boats in the southern hemisphere. From its humble beginnings in 1994, it has grown to become the most significant event of its kind in Australia.

Along with the exhibition of these beautiful boats, the festival delivers a lively combination of incredible local food, live entertainment, music, demonstrations and displays. From the state’s best seafood at our Seafood Market, the MyState V.I.K (Very Important Kids) Area, Maritime Marektplace and our very own tavern, the MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival has all the elements of a summer celebration by the sea.
