Future


The Duyfken 1606 Replica Foundation is planning a number of voyages subject to sufficient funds being raised.

In November 2014, the centenary of the departure of the first Anzac convoy from Albany on the Southern coast of Western Australia will be commemorated. It is hoped that Duyfken will be able to attend the departure and perhaps sail to Gallipoli to be part of the Centenary events in Turkey.

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of the voyage by Dutch seafarer Dirk Hartog to Cape Inscription in Western Australia. This was the first recorded European visit to Western Australia and it is hoped that Duyfken will be able to sail a reenactment voyage from The Netherlands to Australia to mark this very significant voyage in world history.

Duyfken's mission is to tell the story of Australian maritime exploration and also to educate and inform about maritime exploration. The Duyfken Foundation is open to proposals to reenact other historical events.
