Marina Queensland Cruising Yacht Club (Shorncliffe, Queensland)

Things to do in Queensland

You can travel around Queensland making supply stops in marinas that are hidden along the coast, but if you want to know the interior of the territory, the best option is the Brisbane River. Here you can do all kinds of water sports, from kayaking to paddle. In the Brisbane Riverwalk we find a floating walkway of 20 kilometers between the lagoon, gardens and palm trees. Another option is to sail the Brisbane River on a gondola or even steamboat.

If what the captain wants is to follow the coast, he will discover that it is constantly accompanied by the Great Barrier Reef, a World Heritage Site, such a wonder that can be seen from outer space, and it extends from Port Douglas to Bundaberg. No need to mention the joy it represents for the divers.

The Great Barrier Reef can be explored from the surface hopping, in your boat, from one island to another, where you can also find different types of accommodation, ranging from five star resorts to small enclaves which blend with the landscape, always diving under the clear turquoise waters to enjoy the rich biodiversity and several sunken wrecks. With the wind in the sails, you can set sail from Port Douglas, or, if you wish, rent a boat and go anchor in bays and piers such as Cid Harbour. You can also hire a captain or receive sailing lessons in any of the yacht clubs and perform different activities. Do not miss the chance to stop at the Daydream island tourist resort, with shops and restaurants teeming with life, before continuing your adventure.

If you are looking for tranquility, Mission Beach has over 14 kilometers of beautiful beaches with crystal clear cobalt blue waters. It is a perfect base for visiting Dunk Island and Hervey Bay, which is an aquatic paradise where you can practice water sports during most of the year. Finally, the next stop is Gold Coast, a paradise for surfers. With your boat you can go from there to South Stradbroke where you will find some of the cleanest breakers for surfing, although the longest waves in the world are currently in Superbank.
