Alma turns 115 this month

04 Oct 2018

By Bill Reid

Come on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Alma Doepel restoration during Seniors Week.

Shed 2 will open to all ages between 11am and 4pm, Monday, October 8 until Thursday, October 11 and again on Saturday and Sunday, October 13 and 14.

Alma turns 115 years old on Wednesday, October 10. We recommend reserving your place via the Eventbrite website and searching for “Alma Doepel”.

We also invite the community to come to the Alma Birthday Dinner on Friday, October 12 at the Royal Yacht Club Victoria. The cost is $75. Please email (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for more details and payment options.

The Alma Doepel is located along North Wharf Rd, past the Library at The Dock down the end near the Bolte Bridge. It is a lovely walk, if you haven’t been that way.

The Alma Doepel restoration is a community project right here in Docklands. She was launched in 1903 and was built in Bellingen, NSW, by trader, boat builder and shipping entrepreneur, Frederick Doepel.
