Birdseye view of The Boat Works Extreme 40 sailing boat in the Whitsundays


Australia is the world's largest island, flanked by the Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans as well as the Tasman, Timor and Coral Seas. With amazing weather and over 25,000 kilometres of incredible coastline it makes perfect sense that sailing is one of the nation's favourite hobbies. They say the only thing better than owning a boat is having a friend with one, and in keeping with that belief there are plenty of outlets around the country that will rent you a charter yacht to allow you to take off and explore the periphery of our beloved, sunburned country.

Queensland is the most renowned corner of the country for yachting vacations, with the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef both magnets for sailing enthusiasts. A tropical climate, stunning scenery, and the largest living organism on earth need no introduction, and there are charter companies that can cater to your every nautical whim should you choose to explore that stunning part of the world.

Heading south to New South Wales, Sydney Harbour provides some of the most spectacular sailing in the country, with the Hawkesbury and Nepean Rivers further expanding the huge area you can cover in and around Australia's largest city.

From harbour beaches to secluded anchorages, exclusive marinas to colourful yacht clubs on the Pittwater, there is something for everyone, without any of the dangers or discomforts of the open ocean.

Victoria offers magnificent, rugged sightseeing for hardier souls, while over the Bass Strait in Tasmania there are maritime options galore. King and Flinders Islands are hidden treasures en route, and around the coast there are endless inlets, rugged capes and the calmer waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel to be explored. Hobart's historic port is one of the country's most famous, and well worthy of further attention.

Western Australia's capital of Perth offers ample opportunity to take to the high seas, the coastline a sailor's delight from the Swan River to the gorgeous beaches and across to the stunning playground of Rottnest Island. In the far north of the state the Kimberley region is as remarkable and remote an environment as you'll find anywhere on earth. As well as the beauty of the oceanfront, there are incredible inland river systems running through gorges and teeming with wildlife, just begging for closer inspection.
