Held every second year, this increasingly popular bi-annual festival attracts timber ships and boating enthusiasts from across the globe. For one weekend only, these ships from various time periods and backgrounds draw enormous crowds. With demonstrations, activities and displays to get involved in, there is plenty to do for all ages. To appease the masses, there are also tasty Tasmanian food and beverage stalls on offer. This family-friendly event is situated just across the street from the Hotel Grand Chancellor on the docks of the Hobart waterfront. Being so central to the action, you can also see all the ships on display from our Harbour View rooms.
If you haven’t already booked your accommodation in over these dates, get in quick. It is one of the most in-demand times of the year here in Hobart
