Internationally renowned as a land of adventure and excitement, Australia has so much to offer. The Indian and Pacific Oceans surround this coastal nation. As such, on-water pursuits are always on the agenda. From scuba diving to snorkeling to surfing, the water quite literally will be your playground during an Australian luxury yacht charter. One of the most famed locations in Australia undoubtedly is the Coral Sea, which is located off Cairns, Queensland in the northeast corridor. Below the waterline is the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. This Australian national treasure is the earth’s largest coral reef system. Home to a bevy of sea life, among the 400 different varieties of coral, you can visit with sea turtles, dolphins and rays as your explore.
Farther south along the east coast, you will come to the cosmopolitan capital city of Brisbane.

Farther south still is the Land Down Under’s most recognized city, Sydney.
