Yacht charter in Australia with Fraser Yachts

Australia, surrounded by the Pacific and Indian Oceans, is a vast country offering visitors a wealth of culture, landscape, wildlife, and diversity. Home to the stunning Whitsundays and the revered Great Barrier Reef, the continent of Australasia is increasingly a yacht charter haven due to the variety of enjoyment it provides. Whether it’s a city break in Sydney or a scuba diving trip of a lifetime, there is something for everyone in Australia.

Sydney opera house
The iconic Sydney Opera House dominates the skyline at one end of the world-famous Sydney Harbour, rivalled only by the equally notorious Sydney Harbour Bridge which sits opposite. At Fraser Yachts, it is possible to organise a day charter on board a superyacht in Sydney where guests will enjoy outstanding views of the city’s magnificent architecture, in addition to cruising to nearby coves and taking in the views from the National Parks of the local area. Why not end the magical day by returning to the Harbour to attend an Opera in the distinctive building that is so synonymous with the city?

Alternatively guests wishing to enjoy a longer charter experience may opt to depart from Sydney, taking time to enjoy the cosmopolitan atmosphere by dining in one of the many renowned eateries on the water or heading out to the theatre before moving on to the Hawkesbury River the next morning to experience the blissful contrast of isolated bays and calm bush surrounding.  Although Sydney is enchanting all year round, the best time to see the city and the nearby area is generally considered to be between October and April.

For guests with more time at their disposal, and who wish to travel between April to October, the Whitsundays are an ideal place to charter a superyacht for a week or more.  Situated amongst the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland and boasting incredible landscapes, secluded beaches, and the whitest sand, these islands present a paradise for any visitor, and are best explored from the luxury of a superyacht. Guests wishing to embark on a superyacht charter in the Whitsundays will have their pick of 74 islands and a whole host of activities to enjoy. Marvel at the local culture while roaming around caves adorned with aboriginal paintings, wonder at the sea life of the area by partaking in the world-class diving and snorkelling on offer in the region, or discover the many beautiful species of birdlife and butterflies while hiking through the National Park on Lindeman Island.

Indeed, place names around the Whitsundays hint at just how much wildlife there is to be seen; Butterfly Bay, Manta Ray Bay or Turtle Beach for instance. For those who just want to luxuriate in peace and beautiful surrounds the Whitsundays are perfect, simply breathe in the exquisite scenery from the relaxing comfort of the sundeck whilst at anchor before a deserted stretch of beach.

Fraser Yachts has a local team based in Sydney with expert knowledge of the area and the endless possibilities yacht charter in Australia offers. To make an enquiry about superyacht charter in Australia please contact us.
