Polly is 126 years young

The Polly Woodside is gearing up for a big birthday bash and, for the first time in five years, the public is invited to come along and join the party.

Celebrating the 126th anniversary of her maiden voyage, the birthday party will coincide with Polly Woodside’s family day, to be held on Sunday, November 6.

The party will contain plenty of action, with roving pirates, face painting and arts and crafts activities sure to keep the whole family entertained.

While it was closed to the public during the South Wharf redevelopment, Polly Woodside received its own gift in the form of a $3.6 million refurbishment.

The upgrade was to ensure the ship’s future, with The National Trust of Australia (Vic) CEO Martin Purslow saying: “(The renovations) will enable the ship to be more sustainably maintained so that it can be accessed and enjoyed by future generations.”

As part of the celebration, Southbank Local News is giving away tickets to the family day.

It is easy to win. All you have to do is go to our website - southbanklocalnews.com.au and become an online subscriber. The first six people to do so will win four-tickets packages to the event. Who you take is completely up to you!
