It was great to see this lovely ship and it makes a great contrast with huge cruise ships moored nearby and Sydney Opera House.

Spent a fair bit of time here and really enjoyed it, the volunteers were very helpful and knowledgeable about the ship. there were some school children there when we visited and they had a ball, they looked as if they were really enjoying themselves, the staff were helping them pull up sails and explaining how a sailing ship works.

We then boarded a smaller vessel to take us on a tour around some of Sydney Harbour... More

Located at Pyrmont, near the fish market you can visit both at the same day. Tall wooden ship kept in a mint condition. Wealth a visit.
