Ships in Bottle Registration Opens May 2020

We have been known to do some mad things at the MyState Bank Australian Wooden Boat Festival, and we haven’t stopped dreaming up new events. In 2019, we made a serious attempt to claim an Australian record for the largest number of ships-in-bottles ever gathered in one place. With hundred of entrants we handily cracked that record. But more importantly, it was one of our most popular displays, so we're hoping to bring the program back in 2021. We look forward to your registration.

Haven’t got a ship-in-a-bottle? Ask a friend or simply pick one up in a novelty store – any size, any type counts, from the smallest souvenir to the largest work of art.

Collections of your ships-in-bottles should be done between 2.30pm and 3.30pm the same day, unless other arrangements have been made by the AWBF officials. Entry is free for boat owners and the public.
