Step on board in the famous harbor of Sydney and sail south to Tasmania.
Starting in the metropolis of Sydney we sail south along the rocky coast of New South Wales. Our destination Hobart, on the island of Tasmania, is approximately 650 miles away. First, we sail along the coast of New South Wales, but as soon as we pass Cape Howe, we enter the exposed waters of Strait Bass. Crossing this strait between Australia and Tasmania can be challenging, as the waves of the Southern Ocean roll in here without being hindered by land. We hope to catch a favorable moment and soon we will be under the shelter of Flinders Island and then Tasmania itself. We sail along the rugged east coast of Tasmania to the historic harbor of Hobart.
We are warmly welcomed in Hobart. The old streets, colonial history and traditional pubs on offer are worth a visit. Wine and food aficionados are also well catered for by the presence of some of Australia’s best wineries. But Tasmania is above all a paradise for nature lovers! In the remaining primeval forests, you will find the largest deciduous trees in the world, up to more than 80 meters high. So, it is a place where you should spend some time after you leave the ship.
Before and after your voyage leg
We strongly recommend you book a few days accommodation in the port of your embarkation (prior to your joining Oosterschelde), and a few days in the port you disembark (after your place on the voyage ends). This will allow you to recover before and after your adventure and will give you the opportunity to explore locations at your start and end points.

Level 3-voyages are only suitable for the experienced and fit (sea)traveler. The weather could be challenging and during a crossing, there a few if not any options to divert to a harbor. We sail out of reach of helicopters and medical care from shore is usually not available.
The shipping company would like the OOSTERSCHELDE to be accessible to the widest possible audience, but you must realize that you are making a voyage aboard a seagoing tall ship. This requires more of your physical ability than a daily walk. Some voyages are more challenging than others. With the different levels, we give an indication of how heavy the voyage can be. If you are unsure whether a voyage is suitable for you, it is important to contact shipping company OOSTERSCHELDE for advice.
