Event description

Description

The Mission to Seafarers, the Alma Doepel restoration project, and Classic Riverboat Cruises have teamed up to offer Melburnians a rare and exciting opportunity!

On Sunday 28th April only, you are invited to travel on board a historic vessel along the Yarra River from the Mission to Seafarers to the Alma Doepel (or vice versa) via one of Melbourne's busy ports, Appleton Dock, where you can view the giant vessels in Melbourne's shipping hub.

The cruise is designed for visitors to enjoy the heritage events at the Mission to Seafarers where you will be treated to an exhibition of skilled heritage artisans throughout the heritage listed building (search Eventbrite 'Practice Makes Perfect'), and the Alma Doepel (search Eventbrite - Alma Doepel) - a restoration project of a 115 year old Australian tall-ship, the last of her kind - all as part of the National Trust's Heritage Festival.
This cruise is offered for one day only!

Please Note: the cruise will be approximately 25 minutes duration and is one way, either way, between the Mission to Seafarers - berthing at the Wharf Hotel and the Alma Doepel, berthing at the Library at the Dock/Boating Hub.
It is about a 10 - 15 minute walk between the Mission to Seafarers and the Alma Doepel.
It is not necessary to take the cruise in both directions if you don't mind a walk through Docklands. The Polly Woodside is also directly over Seafarers bridge from the Mission building.

As a celebration of the National Trust's Australian Heritage Festival, this is a day to explore Melbourne's considerable Maritime Heritage!
