Bi-Annually in March and November the square rigged tall ship Windeward Bound sails to the majestic Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour on an eight-day adventure under sail. Port Davey lies only 115 nautical miles from Hobart, but it is the land that time forgot.
This is a voyage open to ages 18 and above, it is an "Adventure Under Sail" voyage, not a sail training program, and is not to be missed, you just need yourself and your sense of wonderment and adventure. Read more about the port davey and southwest wilderness 8 day cruise.
The Windeward Bound Trust is a registered charity in Hobart, Tasmania that operates a traditional wooden tall ship and runs sail training voyages to foster personal development amongst young and disadvantaged Australians.
