A New Day for Wattle:
Support the Restoration Fund
Look what we’ve done since 2009 – raised nearly $1.8 million in support, and received over 40,000 hours of volunteer labour worth $1.6 million. We are so close to getting Wattle back in service! After slipping for painting and minor works, we can apply for Marine Survey – our ticket to operate. We just need $200,000 to finish this wonderful project.
Would you support us at this important time? We'd welcome any contribution towards this amazing historic vessel, and all donations are fully tax deductible.
Or use bank deposit to:
Wattle Restoration Account

What We'll Do with Your Donation
See our illustrated page of Tasks Ahead! We'll slip and repaint the tug, finish the fitouts, buy safety equipment, pay insurance, licences, and organise bringing Wattle into survey. And it's your donation that will make this possible.
How We'll Express our Gratitude
You will be thanked in our online record of benefactors and on our Donors Board (although, if preferred, your gift may also remain anonymous).
You'll be able to join our public steamings for free, and receive discounts on charter steams.
And best of all, you will know you have contributed to a new life for an irreplaceable aspect of Australia's rapidly disappearing maritime heritage.
