On board the beautifully crafted HM Bark Endeavour, you glimpse a sailor’s life during one of history’s great maritime adventures, Captain Cook’s epic 1768-71 world voyage. The 43 metre Bark cuts a striking figure in the small working port, where she will drop the drawbridge and welcome the public on the festival’s biggest days, Saturday, November 1 and Sunday, November 2.
Tickets $10 adults, $8 children/concessions or $25 families (2 adults + 3 children).
She’ll arrive under sail, all 930 square metres of it, on Friday, October 31 after travelling south from Sydney on a sea brimming with whales and swept by tens of thousands of shearwaters as they undertake the largest migration in the world.
When you come on board you may wonder whether James Cook and his crew have just stepped ashore somewhere on their voyage. The table is set, clothes are hung and the cat is slumbering.
Look around and you’ll see almost 30 kilometres of ropes and 750 wooden blocks or pulleys!
