The replica of Endeavour will dock in Albany during its circumnavigation of Australia to mark 250 years since Captain James Cook’s first voyage to Australia and the Pacific.

Announced yesterday by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Albany will be one of 39 stops around the country, including eight in WA.

The voyage will set sail from Sydney in March 2020, before heading South to Hobart and continuing around the country in an anticlockwise direction and returning back in May 2021.

The Australian National Maritime Museum's Endeavour replica last visited Albany during January 2012 and will finally return during the 14 month journey next year.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced $6.7 million in funding for trip.

Events and activities are proposed to take place at each of the stops.

Exact dates of when the ship will dock at ports around the country are yet to be confirmed.
