STS Young Endeavour Open Day – Newcastle

Visit Australia’s national sail training ship STS Young Endeavour in Newcastle.

Explore the ship, meet the Royal Australian Navy staff crew, and hear from the Young Endeavour Ambassadors about their voyage experience.

2023 marks the 35 year anniversary of STS Young Endeavour. Since 1988 the ship has welcomed over 14,000 young Australians on board, and sailed more than 500,000 nautical miles.

A voyage in Young Endeavour is a challenging adventure at sea for youth aged 16-23 years. It’s a unique opportunity for youth to develop teamwork and leadership skills through an internationally recognised youth development program. Find out more about voyages in Young Endeavour.

Come along and ask the team how you can apply for your own voyage of a lifetime!


Visitors encouraged to wear enclosed, flat shoes and shorts/pants.


If you’re a Young Endeavour Ambassador and would like to volunteer to assist, please email to confirm.
