We managed to burley up this large white shark while targeting mako and blue sharks off Burnie, Tasmania. The shark swam around the boat for approximately seven hours and it will be an experience we will never forget. This is the second white shark that we have seen in the space of three months. Let's hope this species continues to thrive in Tasmanian waters.

On November 21st 1987 therefore, the ship sailed to Burnie, and returned the next day. A restored steam train, from the Don River Railway (which is an operating railway museum situated in Devonport with its own section of railway), formed part of this two day event and did two return journeys between Devonport and Burnie. Passengers on the Abel Tasman to Burnie, returned on the same day aboard the steam train. The locomotive was MA2.
