Excellent workmanship, detail and looks stunning in the water at Elizabeth Quays. Great to visit during the day as well as in the night, as the lighting makes it look even more magical.

Unfortunately it was closed when we went there, however you can great great views of the boat from the harbour side. There is a lot of information to get gained from the information boards along side of the boat. Very interesting indeed!

We have always loved seeing anything to do with our seafaring past - and this little ship The Duyfken is well worth seeing. How did they make these, oh so long journeys in such a small craft.!! Beautifully made little ship and so much history...More
