Australian Wooden Boat Festival

Join us in Hobart, the home of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival - a spectacular four day celebration of maritime culture and craftsmanship, which is the biggest maritime event of its kind in the southern hemisphere. Held every two years, the Festival brings together over 500 boats and wooden craft of all shapes and sizes will congregate on the city's historic waterfront. This amazing scene of colour and activity provides the perfect setting for an extensive program of dockside entertainment, music, demonstrations, and displays. Opening with the wonderful Parade of Sail on Friday, there is action aplenty on the water throughout the weekend. The unique event also features a taste of Tasmania's best food and beverages. From model boat sailing to clambering around a tall ship; from watching shipwrights at work to cheering on the community boat building teams; there is just so much to see and do!

Bill Bailey – Earl Of Whimsy

Following his 2016 sell-out tour 'Larks in Transit', the UK’s very own straggle-haired polymath, Bill Bailey, returns to Australia with his new comedy and music extravaganza 'Earl of Whimsy'. The show will see Bill’s trademark blend of satire and surrealism, stories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-longs, weird instruments and musical showstoppers. But there’s a distinctly historical feel to this show. With its tales of Britain’s fortunes past and present, of ancient Viking battles, of Shakespeare’s contribution to comedy, and Bill’s own ancestry, this is both a mockery and a celebration of national identity. Here’s a recent round-up of how Bill is described: "a martial arts master in mufti", "the Jedi Knight of juxtaposition" or even "our foremost comedy rock goblin" or is he, as Bill describes himself in his own words, an "Earl of Whimsy"? Whatever his title, this might be his cleverest, daftest, most eccentric show yet. "Scales the peaks of sublime silliness…this is a foray into Bailey’s magpie mind…a delightful place to spend time.” - Lumino Magazine.
