Welcome to  the Official web site of
The Wooden Boat Association of NSW Australia

The Association is based in Sydney and is part of a national community of male and female wooden boat enthusiasts whose purpose is to enjoy, share and promote an appreciation of wooden boats of all sizes.

We meet at 7:30pm on the 2nd Tuesday every month at the
Gladesville Sporties Bowling and Sports Club.

181a Ryde Road, Gladesville.


Hear talks on a range of topics, swap yarns and share an ale or two. Before the meeting you can purchase dinner on the ground floor and male and female visitors / new members are always welcome to the meetings. Boat ownership is not a requirement, just an interest in wooden boats.

The Association plays a major role in the bi-annual Classic and Wooden Boat Festival at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour, Sydney and is a regular exhibitor at the annual Working With Wood Show. We also organise outings of various types throughout the year.
