The Davistown Putt Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival is a great event and also an opportunity for the people to celebrate the Central Coast and the culture that is a part of history, heritage and local character.

Many putt-putt boats are still in use on Brisbane Water today. Putt-putt boats usually range in length from 14-18 feet and are powered by either single or twin cylinder two to 10 hp Blaxland/Chapman, Simplex or Clay inboard petrol driven engines all of which make the very familiar putt-putt exhaust sound. Boats today will also often be powered by small one or two cylinder diesel engines.

The Regatta is now one of the principal events on the Gosford City calendar. The Davistown Putt Putt Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival attracts a huge amount of quality putt putts travelling from as far as Queensland and the ACT.

They also look to provide a family focussed day where the local community and visitors can have an enjoyable day in a safe and family friendly environment. The Regatta has the reputation of being the largest event of its kind on the eastern seaboard.
