Polly Woodside


Polly Woodside

Polly Woodside is a National Trust tall ship: an 1885 three masted iron ship from Belfast moored in a dock next to Melbourne's Yarra River at South Wharf.

With an interactive gallery and an exciting program of events, this ship is a rich reminder of Australia’s maritime history and provides an engaging experience for everyone.

Join the crew of the Polly Woodside and discover what it was like to swab decks, sew sails, navigate your way through the treacherous waters around Cape Horn, load and unload cargo from a ship, and survive on the rations of a nineteenth century sailor.

The Polly Woodside Story


Built in Belfast, Ireland, in 1885, and carried coal, nitrate, and wheat between England and South America. Between 1885 and 1904, traversed the globe 17 times; rounded the treacherous Cape Horn 16 times. Total distance travelled: 1.5 million kilometres. Could travel at speeds of 14 knots (26 kph).

Sold to the National Trust in 1968 for one cent.
