The coastline of Australia is ideal for the adventurous charterer. Ancient cultures sit side by side with cosmopolitan cities, while natural beauty abounds in the miles of deserted beaches that ring the continent. The Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands are headline acts for superyachts heading for an Antipodean adventure. From underwater caves for divers to shallow coral gardens for snorkelers, these stunning waters deliver off-the-beaten-path cruising at its most spectacular. These breathtaking excursions seamlessly complement the ultra-luxurious atmosphere of your luxury charter yacht.
Offering an endless supply of attractions and activities, the far-flung land of Australia promises action, excitement and unbelievable scenery whenever you venture ashore. The bright lights of the cultivated cities combine with tropical islands to make a spectacular alternative cruising destination for those looking to venture to the southern hemisphere. Dotted along the east coast are Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns, all providing social outlets, while natural beauty flourishes in the miles of beaches along the coastline of Queensland. Combine a few days of swimming, snorkeling or diving in the coral-rich waters of the Great Barrier Reef with time spent ashore on one of the idyllic Whitsunday Islands, then hop on a helicopter tour to Hunter Valley to explore the vineyards.
While the coastline is too vast to explore in one charter, there are endless itinerary possibilities that encompass both the bright city lights and chilled tropical islands. Due to its sheer size, the country has a variety of climates. The temperate south has cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers. In the north, a tropical climate prevails with a hot wet season and warm dry season. The best time to visit is from November through March, while the ideal diving conditions around the Great Barrier Reef are from September through to early December.
