Sydney Harbour is home to the iconic Opera House, which stands guard over the waters of this luxuriant city. Here, you can have a true taste of Oz in one of the local cafes or enjoy the fare of one of the city’s Michelin-star restaurants during an Australia yacht charter. And while dining, don’t forget to sample some of the incredible local wines on offer. In town, visit the Royal Botanical Gardens, shop at Darling Harbour and take in the sights from the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Further north, you will find The Rocks, a historical site preserved from one of the Sydney’s first settlements. Sydney’s sophisticated flair includes many art museums and galleries.
Travelling from Sydney, New South Whales, north, you’ll pass Brisbane, Queensland’s bustling capital located on the Brisbane River. Continue further and you will arrive at the Coral Sea, located off the coast of Cairns, Queensland. Here you will find one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, the Great Barrier Reef. An Australian national treasure, the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, comprising more than 3,000 individual reef systems, coral cays and picturesque islands — there is nowhere else in the world quite like it. Home to more than 400 different types of coral, as well as rays, dolphins, sea turtles, giant clams, some pushing 120 years old, and more than 1,500 species of fish, the marine life here astounds. Running parallel to the coast of Queensland from Bundaberg to the tip of Cape York, the reef sits 15 to 150 kilometers off shore, and can be as wide at 65 kilometers in some spots. A truly life-changing experience, enjoy swimming, diving and discovering this incredible locale during an Australia yacht charter.
