From arid outback to the biggest natural harbour in the world, Australia is a country of diversity. Yacht charter in Australia could take you to the shining metropolis of Sydney with its world-famous beaches, a private island surrounded by the incredible Great Barrier Reef, or diving with pelagic creatures off the wild and rugged coasts of Western Australia. Yacht charter is undoubtedly the best way to experience what this incredible country has to offer – in the Great Barrier Reef alone you’ll find thousands of reefs, over 900 islands and endless anchorages. Whether you are seeking a tranquil escape to secluded islands in tropical waters, fine wine and dining in unspoiled coastal towns or a week sailing alongside the finest yachtsmen at a Sydney regatta, Sailo can design the perfect luxury yacht hire itinerary for you.
Best Time To Visit: Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef are best visited in winter (April – November), Queensland and Sydney are best from November to late January.
Key Cruising Areas: The east coast offers many itinerary options - see beautiful beaches and iconic Australian landmarks in Sydney, or head north to the Great Barrier Reef. On the wild west coast see incredible wrecks, rare species such as dugongs and whale sharks, and excellent wine regions.
Don’t Miss: Take a charter from Cairns to see why the Great Barrier reef is one of the seven wonders of the world. With a private Great Barrier charter you can escape the commercial dive areas and explore the quieter ribbon reefs and private island resorts. Dive and snorkel amongst a kaleidoscope of marine life, partake in some game fishing, and enjoy BBQ dinners under an incredible night sky from the deck of your yacht.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: The gorgeous area of Margaret River is famous for its boutique wine producers. Here you can hop from vineyard to beach to ancient forest, and be back in town in time to dine at one of the many award winning restaurants. Try the marron at Cape Lodge, paired with a glass of local chardonnay.
Best Local Dish: “When you see the sea, eat fish”. In the heart of the barrier reef on Lizard Island, heed this advice and dine at the exclusive Salt Water Restaurant. Enjoy local produce with incredible views of blazing sunsets.
Local Culture: Visit the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park to see the world’s most concentrated area of significant Aboriginal Heritage sites, complete with a traditional lunch of emu and kangaroo! Sail to an exclusive anchorage within the park to swim, fish or hike to spectacular waterfalls.
Best Beach: Set in incredible lazuline waters and surrounded by coral reef, the powder-soft white sands of Whitehaven beach are hard to beat. Stretching over 7km, even in peak season you can still feel like you’ve found a private paradise.
Sailo recommends: The fireworks of Sydney are second to none. Venture Down Under in December to watch the harbour light up under a myriad of colours, from the comfort of your superyacht, for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve.
