The Duyfken Replica was built in Western Australia in 1999, as soon as you step on board you are taken back in time to the 1600s.
There are lots of old relics such as maps, tin plates, and navigating instruments like a compass and sextant. The cannons, ropes and treasure boxes make it more exciting for the kids.
The guides were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, we took the tour at our own pace which was fantastic for kids. My 10 year old loved the Captain’s Cabin and the ‘poop deck’.
The Duyfken Replica is located behind Little Creatures in Fremantle Harbour and is open Wednesday to Sunday 11am – 4pm.
We opted for the short tour, 10 – 15 minutes. Adults $7.50, Seniors $5.00 and, Children $2.50. There is also a full audio tour available (not recommended for children under 4), which takes approximately 25 minutes. Adults $12.50, Seniors $10.00 and, Children $5.00.
The Duyfken Replica exhibition has Eftpos facilities and they have merchandise for sale also. Prams are not allowed inside the ship but they can be left at the entrance. The last Sunday of February and March is pirate dress up day for the kids.
