TOURWATCH: Tall ships returning to Australia
Turn the clock back a century, to the era of the tall ships.
The 55-meter Lord Nelson (pictured) is sailing the world, arriving in Australia in August. Join the barque as it sails from Fremantle to Perth and across to the east coast before voyaging on to New Zealand, where you can take the wheel as one of the voyage crew, supported by a professional sailing team.
Sailors must be over 16 years but no sailing experience is required and some cabins are wheelchair friendly.
Costs from $1770 a person, eight days from Adelaide to Melbourne, departing August 17, or $4390 for the 20-day journey from Sydney to Auckland, departing October 8, which includes a cross-Tasman Tall Ships race.
