 Australia - Profile

Facts

  • In spite of the large number of yachts in Australia, the number of Australian yachts cruising overseas is surprisingly small and the only explanation for this is that Australia possesses such beautiful and varied cruising grounds that they do not need to go and look for variety elsewhere. From the wind-swept coasts of Victoria and Tasmania to the picturesque harbours of New South Wales, the tropical islands and Great Barrier Reef of Queensland to the huge shallow bays of the Northern Territory, Australia has it all.
  • The island of Tasmania and the Torres Strait Islands are also part of Australia and there are the overseas territories of Norfolk Island, Cocos Keeling and Christmas Island
  • Getting work done: Facilities in Australia are generally good and anywhere near a yachting centre are excellent. For yachts arriving from the Pacific it is a great relief to find a country where everything is available and virtually anything can be fixed. If in need of a major overhaul or repairs, it is advisable to head for a main centre, such as Sydney, Brisbane, Townsville, Cairns or Darwin, where repair facilities are of a high standard and spares readily available. Prices are high however.
  • Due to the large fishing fleet based in Darwin, there are excellent repair facilities of all types and chandlers in the area around the Mooring Basin. Boats bound for Darwin should join the annual "Over the Top Cruise" organised by the Gove Yacht Club as it includes stops in several places that are normally closed to visitors
  • Provisioning: You will find everything you want here, but food shopping in Australia is expensive.
  • Yacht clubs everywhere are welcoming and are also a valuable source of advice concerning repairs or provisioning. Australian charts are excellent and are continually kept up to date. They are available in any port of significant size.
  • Be aware that all Australian marinas require public liability insurance for both domestic and foreign vessels. Most Queensland marinas require public liability insurance for AUD$5million, as do Darwin marinas due to their unique lock systems. See the formalities section for more details.

Weather

The climate varies from one end of the country to the other. It is mainly temperate except for the tropical north and central desert. The north has two seasons, wet from November to March, with the heaviest rainfall after January. The winter months of April to October are drier and more pleasant. The cyclone season is from late October/early November to early May on both the Pacific and Indian Ocean coasts.

Returning to Australia after a 9 1/2 year circumnavigation we were not looking forward to the alleged complications and expense clearing in to Australia (Bundaberg). Nothing could have been further from the truth; we were attended to by very courteous and friendly officials, all done on board in about 1/2 hour and the total cost $330. Needing groceries the marina then called the manager at the supermarket in nearby Burnett Heads who picked us up in his van, took us to his shop and after finished shopping took us back to the boat via the local liquor store to pick up some beer, how is that for Aussie hospitality! Can thoroghly recommend Bundaberg as a port of entry.

The technical details about Bundaberg Port marina are shown elsewhere on this website but is always the case it is the people who provide the services and operate the machinery that make or break a marina.We came into Bundaberg in Octobet 2013 in our Bruce Roberts 53 with a daunting job list involving everything from respraying the top sides, through mechanical work, canvas repair, sanding timber toe rails and galvanising the anchor chain.On the hardstand there is no restriction on doing your own work or if you prefer all the necessary skills are readily available.
We have lifted and worked on our boat in numerous yards in a whole variety of countries all over the world but never before have we received such skilled, helpful and friendly service right from the management through to the operatives on the ground.
The marina is to be complemented on their service, they deserve to do well.
