Young Endeavour undertakes around 20 eleven day voyages each year, mostly along the east and south coasts of Australia. On each voyage we embark 24 young Australians - the Youth Crew - and nine specially trained Royal Australian Navy Staff Crew.


To sail in Young Endeavour apply for our ballot (which is like a lottery). The ballot opens twice each year. To increase your chances of being selected, we recommend applying for as many voyages as you can.

The voyage program for 2022 is currently under development. Subscribe to our e-newsletter to be the first to hear about new voyage dates and destinations.

The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme is closely monitoring health advice and government restrictions related to the novel coronavirus.

The health and wellbeing of staff crew, youth crew and the wider community remains paramount. Participants will be notified directly should the evolving situation require the Scheme to reconsider delivery of the Young Endeavour Youth Development Program.

For further information please see the COVID-Safe voyaging measures currently in place for all youth development voyages.
