Grab your sailor’s cap and sail to Darling Harbour for the National Maritime Museum’s  special event, the Classic & Wooden Boat Festival. From Friday 15 April until Sunday 17 April, over 100 boats will be on display at the museum and in Cockle Bay Marina, with FREE entry and entertainment!

For 3 days, enjoy a diverse range of activities for the whole family. If you have a little sailor, head to the Kids Boatshed, located on the grassed area outside Wharf 7. Learn the way of sea life with your senses as you craft a model sailing vessel and race it, decorate a sailor hat or print your own calico bag, and enjoy dress-ups and interactive aqua play games inspired by the beautiful boats on display.

Watch maritime demonstrations by fleet professionals as they show you traditional caulking demonstrations, line throwing (you can have a go with this one!) and the Indigenous art of Nawi Canoe building. Sit by the water and watch the swimwear fashion parade, and find out what they wore through the ages.

The Seafarers Performance is one not to be missed! Come up to Sydney Heritage Fleet’s tall ship James Craig and watch a sailor’s adventures come to life through stories and music. By the end you’ll be able to take home a traditional sailor’s knot as a keepsake.

Where:   2 Murray Street, Darling Harbour, National Maritime Museum and Cockle Bay Marina
     Friday 15 April to Sunday 17 April 2016
Cost:        FREE entry
