Tawe Nunnugah 2017

Our crew are attended the 2017 Tawe Nunnugah expedition organised by the Living Boat Trust as a saftey vessel.

"tawe nunnugah" means “going” by “canoe” in the local Aboriginal language. The event took the name to honor the first navigators of southern Tasmanian waters. Every two years keen adventurers set off from Recherche Bay in the far south of Tasmania to row and sail to Hobart , more than 100 nautical miles away, in a fleet of small boats.

This expedition over 10 days takes participants along some of Tasmania’s beautiful and unique coastline, from the wild south and along the spectacular and historic D’Entrecasteux Channel and up the Huon River before entering the Derwent River to Hobart.
