If you have a boat you have the freedom to go anywhere and do anything without restrictions or danger of border closures. Once you’ve set sail the world is yours and so let’s see what Australia has to offer the footloose and fancy free.
The Whitsundays, Queensland
Known as being one of the best places in Australia for relaxing and indulgent vacations, the Whitsunday islands can provide you with some of the most incredible boating experiences as well. Offering pristine white-sand beaches and calm crystal-clear waters ideal for relaxed sailing and cruising, the stunning scenery in the Whitsundays will truly make you feel like you’re in paradise. With mesmerizing corals, colorful fish, and an abundance of interesting marine life such as stingrays and sea turtles, the Whitsundays also provide some brilliant snorkeling and diving opportunities, making it an ideal boating destination for anyone from families to those who’d simply like to taste a little slice of heaven.
Sydney Harbour, New South Wales
If you’re looking for a more urban boating experience that allows you to enjoy the stunning city skylines, Sydney can also be a wonderful choice. The eye-catching scenery offers views of some of the most iconic landmarks in Australia, such as Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, while the beautiful protected bays and pristine swimming spots can provide a number of unique experiences for any type of traveler, from fine dining and exciting diving opportunities to festivals, extreme sports, and even whale watching.
What’s more, Sydney also offers some of the best boat hire options in the country. Whether you’re a family looking for a smaller vessel or even a large party in need of a luxurious yacht, you’ll surely find the right boat for your needs in Sydney Harbour.
Perth is a big city and so, as usual, there is a lot to do. It’s also a great place to start if you wish to explore more of WA whilst travelling Australia. If you want to sail in Perth in style you should have a look at this luxury yacht based there. Whilst you’re in Perth, make sure you check out Fremantle and the famous prison there. There are some great tours that you can take around the prison that are really cheap and I really enjoyed them. It’s a great experience for a small price. The town of Fremantle itself is a nice place to look around as well and if you are wanting to relax on the water for a day there then you could check out this sailboat – renters of this boat often see dolphins! It isn’t expensive either.
The Gippsland Lakes, Victoria
Situated around 250km southeast of Melbourne and fed by five major rivers, including the Mitchell, Tambo, and Nicholson rivers, the Gippsland Lakes system is among the largest tidal waterways in Australia. These sheltered waters stretch from Lakes Entrance to Sale, linking together the Victoria, Wellington, and King lakes. Covering around 420 square km, the Gippsland Lakes provide mesmerising waterfalls, stunning marine life, as well as an abundance of outdoor activities such as fishing, water skiing, and camel riding, truly offering an ideal adventure for any size and type of boat.
