Julie Burgess - The Story of a Bass Strait Fishing Ketch

The Julie Burgess is the last of a fleet of small sailing vessels that traded and fished in the waters of Bass Strait for over a century. They were the work horses of the early coastal settlements, carrying timer, farm produce and other cargoes along the coast and across Bass Strait before there were ports, roads, railways and bridges. She represents generations of seafaring families such as the Burgesses, who braved the stormy seas and strong currents of the Strait to build the successful crayfishing idiustry.
