All scouts on deck

27 Feb 2019

Docklands welcomed a special set of international visitors on February 19, as Scouts from the People’s Republic of China climbed aboard the Enterprize.

As part of their Melbourne tour, the students boarded the vessel for a two-and-a-half hour round trip down the river and into the bay.

Enterprize is a replica of the ship that brought the first European settlers to Melbourne from Tasmania in 1835 and was designed to be as authentic as possible.

Enterprize general manager Michael Womack said on the day that the expedition might not be so smooth for the youngsters.

“It’s a bit bumpy out there today according to the captain. But they’re scouts – they’ll be right,” he said with a smile.

This was the second year Mr Womack and his team has welcomed the group.

“Oh they’re very receptive and keen to get on board. It’s exciting for them. I don’t think they get out on the water very much, so they seem to enjoy themselves.”

For more information about day sails, private charters and school education programs, visit enterprize.org.au or call 9621 1294.

“Hopefully they enjoy this part of their tour and go back with happy memories.”

The Enterprize welcomes thousands of school-aged children each year, providing practical sail training and educating them about Melbourne’s maritime past.
