Thanks for your responses

Cartela at the Port of Hobart

A big thank you to all those who have contacted us recently.

We have had some great stories of happy days on Cartela.

From tales of school picnics, mutton birding at Wedge Island to Tim Kingston telling us about being the resident DJ on Cartela (and that would have been interesting at times…).

One reader sent in some interesting information about the naming of ferries and place names around the early part of last century in Tasmania.

Cartela in 1914.

We have also had generous offers to help with the project.

One is to help assessing the diesel engines in Cartela. This will be very helpful in the restoration project – when funding is available.

How can you help?

There are various ways you can help the project. Firstly, visit and like our Facebook page

That way we can keep in touch when there is some news to share.
