The Rebuild Independence Group are building a replica of the 45ft U.S Schooner Independence built in 1803. The boathouse is open most days 10.30 am to 2.30 pm. A volunteer guide will tell you the story of the original vessel and the crew. This was the first vessel built in South Australia. The rebuild commenced in 2017 and it relies solely on donations and Volunteers. There is a donation tin if you wish to contribute or for $20 you can have your name on the shed wall. There is a cafe next door to assist with your visit.

What an amazing undertaking! The smell of oregon pine permeates the air. Someone will give you a guided tour and fill you in with the history of the area and ship. For $20 you can buy a 'plank of wood'! Your name is then displayed in the shed. All proceeds go towards the rebuild. A fantastic idea.

Absolutely inspiring to have an idea and make it happen. The volunteer rebuild group will show you around and you can have a look at progress. Some of the wood even comes from Canada! I would love to this beautiful sailing ship have its first launch in a few years time. Who knows when this will be ?
