Earlier Greenpeace expeditions have been in little more than ill-fitted vessels but the new Rainbow Warrior is a custom-designed, eco friendly and state of the art creation.
On the free tour you can see one of the world's most environmentally friendly ships. There will be a chance to meet the captain, visit the control room, see the helicopter landing pad and note the satellite communications system where live footage can be streamed directly from the live action to the media.
The family friendly event will also feature face painting and other activities for children
You will also be able to learn what you can do to help save the reef.
A fascinating outing for families and a worthy cause for all Australians.
