Melbourne International Tall Ship Festival 2013

Melbourne International Tall Ship Festival 2013

Victoria celebrates the spirit of voyages and adventurers, past and present, as it welcomes the arrival of nine tall ships into the historic seaport of Williamstown in the inner west of Melbourne, creating the city’s first major international tall ships festival.

The event will draw crowds to the shoreline and to the various dockside locations along Nelson Place, Williamstown where the ships will be berthed, including at Seaworks, Royal Yacht Club of Victoria and Gem Pier.

A weekend of public celebrations will be held at Seaworks over Saturday, 7th and Sunday, 8th September.

Further details about arrival times and viewing times will be made closer to the event.

Track the progress of the ships as they are making their way towards the southern hemisphere and keep informed about opportunities to be involved including traineeships and public and corporate bookings.
