Launched in Belfast in 1885, the Polly Woodside sailed 1.5 million kilometres around the globe. Located in the heart of Melbourne's South Wharf precinct she is a tangible reminder of Australia's rich maritime history and is one of Melbourne's most iconic attractions.

Visitors can take a guided tour of the ship, including below the decks, view artefacts in the award winning interactive gallery and watch a fascinating short film about life onboard the ship in the theatrette.

With an interactive gallery and an exciting program of events, this enchanting tall ship provides an engaging experience for all.

Polly Woodside is open every day during the School Holidays and on weekends outside of this time. Closed public holidays.
