Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation


The STS Leeuwin II is Western Australia’s very own tall ship, a unique three-masted 1850’s barquentine. A Youth Explorer Voyage onboard will lift a student to the next level and ensure they are given the edge to enter the workplace with the best opportunities available to them.

Our primary program is our Youth Explorer Voyages. A week-long opportunity for participants to sharpen their work-ready skills and enhance skills in communication, leadership and collaboration.

In addition to our Youth Development program, we run a range of specialised voyages and 3-hour sails.



Leeuwin Ocean Adventure is a trusted not-for-profit organisation based in Fremantle. Since 1986 we have welcomed more than 40,000 young people onboard the STS Leeuwin II.

The Leeuwin Foundation is funded through a combination of grants, corporate sponsorships and donations by organisations and the general public.

In 2016 we celebrated our 30th anniversary.



STS Leeuwin II is a three-masted sail training ship designed in an 1850’s barquentine style. The ship was launched in 1986.

It is 55 metres long and 33 metres tall. It has 16 sails with a total of 810m2 of canvas.
