When we went into the city on Wednesday this lovely little vessel sailed up the river.
It's a replica of the Duyfken, a small Dutch ship which, in 1606 sailed from the Indonesian island of Banda in search of gold and trade opportunities on the fabled island of Nova Guinea.
Under the command of Willem Janszoon, Duyfken and her crew ventured south-east.
They sailed beyond Os Papuas (Papua New Guinea)and explored and chartered part of the coast of Nova Guinea.
They did not find gold - but they did find the northern coast of a huge continent: - Australia.
Captain Janszoon was the first European to map and record Australia in history so Duyfken's voyage marks the beginning of Australia's recorded history.
I think the replica is used in the tourist industry .
The ship is tiny.
I wouldn't like to sail the seas in a tiny thing like that!
