Heads-up Aussies – Melbourne Wooden Boat Festival is coming up

Melbourne Wooden Boat FestivalNo, no one has invited to fly me down under to report (though I am still willing to negotiate!), but, since I know folks from the South-side check in, I wanted to make sure folks knew about this cool-sounding event: the Wooden Boat Festival, held this year in Melbourne, Australia on February 20-21. According to reader Richard Monfries, who alerted us of this event, this is the first time the event has been in Melbourne. Well worth a looksee, and sorry I won’t make it (though I would look nice in a press pass – I’m just saying).

We also want to highlight the Wooden Boat Association of Victoria, of which Richard is a member. Some nice pictures in their photo area.

Please post comments or send an email with any neat news from the events.

Hi Tim

On behalf of our Wooden Boat Association in Victoria, Australia, thanks for the post. It’s going to be a ripper weekend. I’ll send in a report after the party. This is the first wooden boat festival in Melbourne, so for the next one it would be good to have some international visitors floating – or flying – in!




Thanks for helping spread the word – the event was a huge success and the next event is scheduledfor late Feb 2012

Please shoot me your details for a press pass 🙂

Mark Bergin
Festival Director
