The theme of the Workshop was Vessel Restoration and the River coupled with a hands-on Workshop to develop the new ANMM/AMMC Travelling Exhibition, Australians and their Boats. The Workshop featured plenty of delegate interaction, participation, and learning about staging low cost exhibitions. 


The Workshop began on Thursday 18 October with a cruise aboard Paddle Steamer Pevensy from Echuca Wharf, and concluded on Friday 19 October after the AMMC Annual General Meeting and a light working lunch.
