If you’re a bit sick of land and want to take to the water for a while, NSW has plenty of places you can do just that. Whether you’re only wanting to get out for a day, are keen to make it an overnighter, or you’d like to make it a week (or even more), there are lots of spots to visit.
Before you head off on your next adventure, remember to give your vessel a careful looking-over to make sure you don’t arrive at your destination only to find a trip-ending problem. Or, you can just trade in what you’ve got now for something nice and new for total peace of mind - use our online finance quote tool to find out just how low your monthly repayments could be!
Day trips ahoy
Whether you’re a tourist or a local, getting out in the Harbour is an awesome experience that’s vastly different from taking it in on land. Venture out and take some pics of two of Australia’s most iconic landmarks; the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
The natural beauty of the Tweed River and its surrounding flora and fauna makes for a perfect day out for everyone. Take your boat past Stott’s and Ukerebagh Island and gape in awe at the breathtaking Mount Warning.
Sightseeing off Newcastle’s coast may include a few whales if you’re lucky (and it’s the right time of year i.e. June to November) plus some incredible landmarks like sea caves, cliffs, islands and wrecks. It’d really be quite difficult to get it done right in just a day so make it a weekend and tick all the must-sees off the list!
Each of the destinations we’ve listed really can fall under any of the day/weekend/week-long headings, honestly. Tweed River’s abundance of surrounding sights combined with its absolute serenity makes it an ideal place to spend either a day or an entire weekend. And keep your eyes peeled for a dolphin or two!
The Mighty Murray
Pack the skis and cruise at speed with someone in tow; slow things down and take your time; cut off the engine and throw in a line; pull up to the bank and moor on a stump for the night. You can easily spend a week or two on the Murray for some well-deserved R&R.
Just an hour out of Sydney, the Hawkesbury River will never fail to deliver brilliant experiences. Launch your boat, cruise out and unwind in the midst of some of Mother Nature’s most amazing work - varying types of landscapes and wildlife in and out of the water (including dolphins) are just the tip of the iceberg.
