The Great Willy Boat Race

September 2017

A construction play event inspired by Williamstown's shipbuilding heritage.

The Great Willy Boat Race is a free, facilitated, drop-in style construction play event suitable for children aged 2+ years. 

Inspired by the shipbuilding heritage of Melbourne's west and the Williamstown marina, The Great Willy Boat Race invites children (and adults!) to build to make their own version of a bottomless boat using only cardboard boxes and recycled craft materials. 

Children will then 'launch' their boat in a foot race - The Great Willy Boat Race - and can then take their boat home for more play. 

To ensure we have enough craft materials please book for each adult and child attending.

Produced for Hobsons Bay City Council
