Wooden Boat Festival
at Jervis Bay Maritime
The Jervis Bay Maritime Museum’s
Wooden Boat Festival will be held on the
October Long Weekend, 3 -5 October
2015. The festival will encompass a
number of static wooden displays, a
model boat exhibition, radio controlled
boats, children’s workshops, music,
entertainment, food and market stalls.
The Model Boat exhibition in the
Museum will showcase the art and craft
of model boats built on a small scale.
The exhibition is an opportunity to view
the exquisite workmanship that goes
into making these intricate models.
There will be a number of wooden
boats on display in the Museum
grounds. Locally built boats from our
heritage fleet will also be on display
including the historic Lady Denman,
an inner Sydney Harbour ferry built in
Huskisson in 1911; the Crest, a fishing
boat also built in 1911 and our latest
edition the Kingfisher, a 30ft post World
War II fishing boat.
The Festival will also coincide with
our monthly markets, which will be held
