The Australian National Maritime Museum shines a light on our nautical heritage

For three days, more than 100 classic boats will fill Cockle Bay Wharf, including the 1924 luxury ketch Hurrica V seen in Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.

There's just as much to do as there is to see. The festival includes speakers, live music and a marketplace. You can watch demonstrations of canoe carving and line throwing, and kids can create and race boats or decorate a sailing hat.
