THE Duyfken replica is sailing further upriver than usual this December, docking at its specially built island berth at Elizabeth Quay.
The Duyfken usually lurks around Fremantle’s moorings or sails up the coast to Hillarys Boat Harbour but can now dock at an island berth built bespoke last year.
The Dutch-inspired replica’s in its element in the river; based on a small, lightly armed ship, it’s little hull is easily able to navigate shallow water while bigger ships have to wait out at sea.
The ship’s at Elizabeth Quay for on-board tours from 1pm to 5pm Wednesday to Sunday starting this week and all the info’s at http://www.duyfken.com/visit
