Tour the Duyfken replica

Visit the Duyfken replica and take a guided tour of this unique sailing ship. Step back in time as you learn about the incredible voyages undertaken by the original Duyfken, the harsh conditions endured on-board and the simple technology of the time. Discover how Dutch trade in Indonesia 400 years ago lead to early European exploration of Australia.

On Exhibition at Elizabeth Quay - on board audio tours 1.00pm - 5.00pm Wednesday to Sunday from 30 November

• Tours leave from our Exhibition Kiosk adjacent the ship every 15 minutes from 1.00pm.  Last tour commences at 4.30pm

• Tours are escorted by a tour leader with a maximum of 10 guests.

• The personal audio tour takes you on two journeys: the first walks you through the Replica ship, its history and the function of each part of the ship; the second takes you back 400 years to discover what life was like aboard a 17th century Dutch spice ship. As you move through the ship you will be transported back in time.

• The audio tour runs for 25 minutes with the full tour lasting 45 minutes, so you have time to take photos at the end and ask questions of the tour leader.
