Queensland’s hidden gems: paradisiacal, world class scenes but without the crowds. Often you will have these locations all to yourself unlike the crowded familiar spots like the Whitsundays, Whitehaven Beach, Rainbow Beach’s famous Coloured Sand blow, or the crystal clear azures waters of the Bahamas. You don’t have to drive to far to reach some of the most breathtaking locations including the swirling turquoise waters of Wathumba Creek and Rooneys Point, the coloured sand cliffs of Arch Cliffs, the biodiversity at Moon Point, resort life at Kingfisher Bay, historical shipwreks at Ungowa Creek, the protected waterways of Garys anchorage and Inskip Point, and the quaint seaside town of Tin Can Bay.
The Premier Choice
FOR YOUR FRASER ISLAND YACHT CHARTER EXPERIENCE
Our cruising area encompasses the safe and sheltered waters of the Great Sandy Strait and north into Platypus Bay on the remote western side of Fraser Island. Our home port of Hervey Bay and Fraser Island is a short 3 hour drive north of Brisbane, while the local Fraser Coast Airport offers direct flights from Sydney and Melbourne.
With south-easterly trade winds, Fraser Island provides the ultimate protection for cruising along the western side. The area is very easy to navigate making it perfect for first timers and a stress free sailing holiday. With no moorings and mostly sand bottom, you are spoilt with choice when it comes to finding an anchorage to explore.
Known as the Hill Inlet of the Fraser Coast, Wathumba Creek is a magical, picturesque place with all your favourite activities on offer. Snorkel in the creek with turtles, swim in the crystal clear waters, navigate up the creek in the tender, or walk along the white sandy beaches. It is no wonder this is one of the favourite anchorages.
The coloured sand hills of Triangle Cliffs make for a perfect spot to watch the sunset across the ocean. The stretches of white beach make for a great spot to enjoy a picnic or game of beach cricket.
Moon Point is the closest anchorage to the harbour and provides protection in a variety of winds. The area is full of adventure with close access to Moon Point creek for fishing and crabbing, or Pelican Bank for swimming and relaxing.
