HDS Aus-Pac at the 2019 Australian Wooden Boat Festival

The Australian Wooden Boat Festival is held every second year in Hobart, Tasmania. In 2019, HDS Aus-Pac attended for the first time. Our presence was organised by local Tasmanian member, Simon Lessels.

The display was well attended with hundreds of people watching the diving displays and looking at our static equipment display. We were fortunate to be visited by many current and retired divers with lots of stories to tell. ABC Radio also interviewed us. The interview can be found here: https://www.abc.net.au/radio/hobart/programs/statewideweekends/historic-divers/10797488

Our display also featured in the Hobart Mercury newspaper and the Weekend Australian on the following weekend. Overall a great success for promoting HDS Aus-Pac while also being great fun for those members that attended.
