The Tall Ships are coming . . . to Australia
Europe sees them annually, but the last time a significant gathering of the world’s Tall Ships took place in Australia was to commemorate the nation’s bicentennial in 1988.
In 2013, Australia celebrates the centenary of the Royal Australian Navy’s fleet arrival in Sydney Harbour (yes, you older countries, the RAN is that new!). Joining naval ships from around the world will be Dutch, British, Indonesian, Argentinian, Colombian, New Zealand and Australian Tall Ships, which will visit the far-flung Australian ports of Fremantle, Melbourne, Hobart and Sydney before racing to Auckland, New Zealand. See the ships that are coming here on YouTube.
