'Southern Swan' is a three masted barquentine built in Denmark in 1922 from Danish oak frames.
Southern Swan regularly crossed the North Sea as a grain carrier between Denmark and Greenland for the Tuborg Beer Company until 1969. With ice being a constant hazard in these far northern waters, the ship's bow was strengthened during the initial construction to cope with any light ice work. She was purchased in 1969 as a private vessel and extensively refitted to make extensive ocean voyages, including service as a sail training vessel with the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets.
She participated in the 1982 Tall Ships Race from Philadelphia to Portugal. In 1986 after appearing at the World Expo in Vancouver, Southern Swan sailed to England to join the Australian Bicentennial First Fleet Re-Enactment for the historic voyage to Sydney.
