The schooner 'Enterprize' is a replica of the ship purchased by John Pascoe Fawkner in 1835 to transport passengers, livestock and supplies from Tasmania.
The replica is owned and operated by the 'Enterprize Ship Trust', 2 Ann Street, Williamstown, Victoria. It is available for charter, by individuals and groups, in Port Phillip Bay and the waters of south eastern Australia, and also re-enacts her namesake's crossing of Bass Strait which resulted in the founding of Melbourne.
