Marina Margate Marina Park (Kettering, Tasmania)

Things to do in Tasmania

Tasmania is considered one of the most beautiful areas on the planet. Of special interest to captains is the navigable river Derwent , as they can follow its beautiful coastline, and moor in the picturesque ports that are located on its coast, bearing in mind that that its whipped by the providential wind of Mount Wellington. Mooring your boat and continue the journey by kayak is a great option. After that you can venture into the streets of Hobart and merge with the marine environment of Battery Point. If you arrive to the coastal town of Kattering without a boat, you can take a ferry at the pier towards Bruny Island or enjoy a cruise between the cliffs.

In Bruny Island (which are actually two islands connected by a neck) you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in Tasmania, where you can sail among the native flora and fauna, including the peculiar blue penguin. It’s ideal for swimming, sailing, and performing countless water activities including surfing. Thanks to the suitable wind in Cloudy Bay, in January, an internationally known competition for surfers, called the Bruny Island Classic, takes place.

While navigating amongst the dolphins, you can also observe the migration of whales and be amazed with large colonies of Australian sea lions upon arriving at Friars rocks. The local wines are quite famous as well as the rest of the food (we recommend all kinds of cheese and fudge, a type of traditional nougat of various flavors). If you wish to get to know the history of the place there’s an Adventure Bay Museum, where the secrets of the tribes and the whalers are embodied. This city also has all the modern comforts - pubs, comfortable accommodations and even a spa. From Bruny Island you can direct your boat to Kettering, in the D`Entrecasteaux Channel, where you can moor into the shelter of the harbor among other yachts and picturesque fishing boats.
