Tribal Warrior voyage

The Koori vessel Tribal Warrior sets out to circumnavigate Australia in a timber hulled pearling lugger more than 100 years old. She carries a crew of seven Aboriginal/Koori men. The voyage lasts 648 days. They visit 120 Aboriginal communities, over 26,000 kilometres. This is the first circumnavigation of Australia in a sea going vessel crewed only by Indigenous Australians (V46 ‘Tribal Warrior Harbour Cruises’)
