STS Young Endeavour is an Australian tall ship. Young Endeavour was presented as a gift from the United Kingdom for Australia's bicentenary of colonisation in 1988. She operates as a sail training vessel and is operated by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The vessel was designed by naval architect Colin Mudie and is brigantine rigged.

The ship conducts voyages for young Australians aged between 16 and 23 years. 24 'youth crew' are selected by ballot process twice a year, for an eleven-day voyage.
