Launched in 1986, Leeuwin II is Australia's largest ocean-going tall ship and is dedicated to challenging and inspiring people on adventurous ocean voyages.

Voyages on Leeuwin II are designed to assist and educate people, develop Australia's youth and the wider community in terms of leadership, team skills, community spirit and environmental awareness.

The Foundation offers adventurous voyages along the Western Australia coast between Esperance and Darwin. A wide range of programmes is available to suit all ages and interests from short 3-hour sails to 12-day voyages.

The activities on board are designed to encourage teamwork, communication, problem solving and leadership.
