Whitsunday Islands

The 74 Whitsunday Islands lie between the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, a massive stretch of coral teeming with marine life. The perfect spot for sailing.

When sailing through the islands there is a picture perfect moment at every corner, with so much to see. Most of the islands are uninhabited and they’re characterised by dense rainforest, hiking trails and white sand beaches. The jewel in the crown is Whitehaven Beach, it may be the best known beach of the Whitsundays, for its pure white silica sand. It’s got to be a must see on your list when planning your sailing journey.

Many of the other islands serve as a day-trip, camping, snorkelling or diving destinations. Plus, if you want to hop on to land, from Airlie Beach there is a range of tours on offer, including helicopter and seaplane flights with aerial views of the Whitsunday Islands and farther out to sea.

Port Jackson

Port Jackson, consists of the waters of Sydney Harbour, Middle Harbour, North Harbour and the Lane Cove and Parramatta Rivers, is the ria or natural harbour of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The harbour is an inlet of the Tasman Sea. What a choice of places to sail!

Port Jackson has continued to play a key role in the history and development of Sydney. Many recreational events are based on or around the harbour itself particularly the Sydney New Year’s Eve celebrations and the starting point of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. The ultimate race to watch for any inspiring sailor and a sailing goal for a more distinguished one.

The waterways of Port Jackson are managed by the Roads & Maritime Services. Sydney Harbour National Park protects a number of islands and foreshore areas, swimming spots, bushwalking tracks and picnic areas. The perfect sailing location that gives you so much choice.

Hamilton Island

With its abundance of spectacular waterways, it’s no wonder Hamilton Island offers all sorts of ways to sail around the region. Whether you’re new to sailing, or an experienced sailor, Hamilton Island offers plenty of ways to enjoy this magnificent part of the world.

Swimming in the crystal clear waters, visiting Hill Inlet and snorkelling the surrounding island reefs will certainly ensure beautiful memories are made.

Port Phillip Bay

Sail down the Yarra and into Port Philip Bay for a spectacular view of Melbourne’s skyline. You will see the spectacular city skyline and bustling activity of Melbourne’s Port.

With 260 kilometres of coastline, Port Phillip is 35 times the size of Sydney Harbour. The bay has safe, sandy bay beaches stretching from Sorrento, on the Mornington Peninsula, to Queenscliffe, on the opposite side of the Bay. But it is the area closer to Melbourne, on the southern side of the bay, that interests most people.

The beaches along this stretch include St Kilda, Elwood , Brighton, Sandringham, Beaumaris, Mordialloc, Frankston and Seaford. Water temperatures in Melbourne are cool all year round but it gives a stunning landscape to view for any budding sailor.
