Event description

Description

Take a free tour “Behind the Scenes” of the Alma Doepel to see firsthand the work that is going on to restore this 115 year old Australian three masted top sail schooner..

Learn about the rich history, the purpose of the restoration, the problems encountered and how they have been overcome, the work going on today and the passion and dedication of Alma volunteers who have put 60,000+ hours into the project.

Discover how we aim to have her hull back in the water early to mid 2019 ready for the final refit and return to “Youth Sail Training” programs, a life changing program enabling young men and women to challenge themselves out on the open water on a tall ship in a safe and nurturing environment that engenders self esteem enabling participants to achieve things they never thought possible, through real life experiences.

Once completed, a project of this type may never be seen again close to a major CBD and in view of the public.

Participants can enjoy a morning cuppa and a browse through our information centre.

Tours Tuesdays, Fridays 12pm-2pm and Saturdays 11am-3pm
from Tuesday 22 Jan to Saturday 2 March 2019.
