Great Barrier Reef Yacht Charter

Does a Great Barrier Reef yacht charter inspire images of lazy afternoons, laidback Aussie humor and perhaps a cold beer at dusk?

How about, "Throw another shrimp on the barbie...". Ahh, the distinct memory of summers past. Growing up in Queensland, I'm probably the best person to tell you, exactly what you're missing. I can't say enough about the riches of North Queensland and the benefits of yacht charter around Cairns. It really has got something for everyone, and each attraction could stand-alone and still be impressive.

One of the highlights of a yacht charter in North Queensland is The Great Barrier Reef. It is one of the world's seven natural wonders; Bedarra Island Resort is within easy sailing distance: it is one of the worlds top ten. If you'd like a break from your Australia yacht charter and the beautiful oceans of North Queensland, visit the Daintree rainforest: one of the world's most ancient. What better place to go for your sailing vacation?

A little bit of trivia for you - The Great Barrier Reef boasts the biggest structure of living organisms on earth. It stretches for around 2500 km along the coast of Queensland, resting only 50km from the coastline, in the North. As a protected national park, some of the coral and sea life that you'll find here will blow you away. Like the Whitsunday Islands, a sailing vacation in Northern Queensland will provide you with everything you could want, from five star luxury, to idyllic and tranquil perfection. You need not stray far to find sheltered bays for anchoring, resorts with moorings, or fully services marina's.

The types of yacht charter available in The Great Barrier Reef include motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and even the occasional super yacht charter.

Cairns is great for bareboat or crewed yacht charter all year, however the best time for a sailing vacation in Cairns, is from April to September, during the cooler months. The summer months tend to be very hot and humid and are prone to sharp burst of tropical rain and there have been cyclones years ago. Summer is also the high danger season for box jellyfish, which are generally best avoided for maximum enjoyment on your sailing vacation.
