Port Davey Expedition

Windeward Bound & Celery Top Islands in Bathurst Harbour, Southwest Tasmania

Windeward Bound & Celery Top Islands in Bathurst Harbour, Southwest Tasmania

Imagine…….A natural waterway older than time itself… A waterway larger and more intricate than Sydney Harbour… A waterway that has never been settled by European humans…and more importantly, never will be. Can such a place still exist? 

The answer lies only 115 nautical miles from Hobart, 115 miles in distance and a thousand years in time. The incredible World Heritage area of South West Tasmania holds one of the world's best kept secrets…Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour - mile upon mile of unsettled waterways, totally sheltered from the sometimes wild Southern Ocean, a network of unique marine life undisturbed for millennia. The 35 metre Sail Training Brigantine "Windeward Bound" visits this untouched wilderness only twice a year, so join us now for an 8 day voyage to this wonderland.


Windeward Bound is a traditional square rigged Tall Ship, authentic in every way and is sailed and handled exactly as her forebears were two and three hundred years ago. However, unlike her forebears, today's adventurers enjoy good food, hot showers, comfortable bunks, first class Tasmanian wines with dinner and an escape from an often frenetic world. 

Join us now for an 8 day voyage crusing to this wonderland, to book your place on this exclusive, unique and unforgettable voyage - Cost is only $3,650.00 per person all inclusive.  All food and beverages are included, you just need yourself and your sense of wonderment and adventure. This is a voyage open to all ages, is an "Adventure Under Sail" voyage, not a sail training program, and is not to be missed. For enquiries, email office@windewardbound.com.au.
