Bookings for the Voyage of Discovery now open - early bird to March 15
Alma Doepel "Voyage of Discovery" Fundraiser
As part of our contribution to the Australian Heritage Festival, we are running a Voyage of Discovery aboard the Lady Cutler. Due to remedial works at the wharf, we cannot commit to our annual Open Day lest remedial works are still in progress. Instead, we will take a look at Alma from the water, cruise through some of the ports and the waterways around Alma. We will learn about the history of the Alma Doepel and about Melbourne's rich Maritime Heritage.... so join us on Sunday 18 April 2021.
Take a look back at the last Cruise aboard the fabulous Victoria Star
The "Leap Day" Cruise on board the Victoria Star 29 Feb Star 2020
To celebrate "Getting Back to Normal" the Alma Doepel Supporters Club will host another Cruise as part of the Australian Heritage Festival. This will be one of the Festival "Curtain Raisers".
This fundraising cruise will be the "Alma Doepel Tour of Discovery", and will be held on Sunday 18 April - boarding at 11:30am departing 12 noon and returning 3pm. Lunch will be served on board and you can choose from the new Lady Cutler "Burgers and Beer" menu that offers vegetarian options as well as traditional ingredient gourmet burgers.
Bookings are now open with early bird discounts applying if booked before
Midnight Monday 15 March.

Subscriptions are a major part of funding for the restoration. Covid-19 lockdowns meant our fundraising events could not take place in 2020 resulting in significant loss of revenue for the restoration.
Now, more than ever, we need our financial members.
You represent more than membership revenue, you represent a level of physical community support that potential sponsors look for, when considering applicants. So we ask you to please become a financial member today. If you can afford it, a 5 year membership represents excellent value.
You get 1 year free and you do not have to worry about renewal for some time to come.
So please download the Application for your 2020-21 subscription today.
