Leeuwin Sailing


Each year the Shire of Dardanup offers a group of Shire residents, between the ages of 14 and 25 the opportunity to receive a full scholarship to participate in a Youth Explorer Voyage.

The voyages are operated by the Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation on the sailing vessel STS Leeuwin II, which is a full working ship.

Successful applicants are involved in most aspects of the ship operations. This program is designed to help young people build many life skills including self-confidence, teamwork, leadership and communication.

In 2020, the voyage departs from Bunbury on January 16, 2020 and returns in Fremantle on January 22.

Scholarship Applications for 2020 are now open and close on Friday, November 1.
