Design a Ferry of the Future!

Passionate about boats, design, engineering, the environment or simply love drawing and colouring?

SeaLink has launched a ferry design competition encouraging South Australia’s primary and secondary school students to visualise your dream ferry of the future. Students should get as creative, tech savvy or as innovative as they can for a chance to win one of ten family trips with SeaLink.

Primary school students can let their imagination run wild and be as artistic, creative, and inventive as they can. From slippery slides for stairs, a games arcade, to a concealed helipad, the sky (and seas) really is the limit!

Secondary school students should take the opportunity to apply their learnings from STEM subjects and draw on eco-friendly transport solutions for inspiration, by designing a ferry which further nurtures sustainable best practices.
