This November, it’s 25 years since the replica Norfolk entered the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary and 225 years since George Bass and Matthew Flinders sailed the sloop, Norfolk into the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary from Sydney to solve a riddle. Was Van Diemen’s land joined to the mainland or was it an island?

Join us in celebrating the building and sailing of the Norfolk replica.
