Residents on a remote island in the Northern Territory were shocked to see what looked like a Viking ship sail past yesterday.
Police say they received a report of residents seeing the unusual boat off the coast of Elcho Island in Arnhem Land.
Northern Watch Commander Gary Smith says the 15-metre boat was a replica Viking vessel on the home stretch of a world tour.
“Police and local rangers patrolled the area and came across the vessel with swords drawn,” Watch Commander Gary Smith said.
