The inaugural annual waterfront festival for seafarers and landlubbers alike, to celebrate Williamstown’s waterfront heritage, lifestyle and industry, will take place from 27 February to 1 March 2020.

The main attraction of the Williamstown Seaport Festival will be the arrival of three magnificent Tall Ships – our very own James Craig, Young Endeavour and Enterprize.

Visitors are invited to step on board the ships, take a look around and hear their incredible history. You can explore them from top to bottom and, in the case of James Craig, stand where sailors stood more than 150 years ago.

James Craig will sail into Seaworks pier at approximately 1.00pm on Thursday 27 February 2020. Visitors can come and see this incredible ship arrive, then be a part of the Welcoming Ceremony at Seaworks from 3.00pm.

James Craig and Young Endeavour will berth at Seaworks, which is part of the Seaworks Festival Zone on the weekend of 29 February to 1 March 2020, and Enterprize will be at its usual location at Gem Pier.
