Imagine a place where you can sail to your heart’s content, far from the superyachting crowd. Imagine a realm where you can indulge your cruising dreams, yet never be far from a safe berth. Imagine a world where you can refit and repaint yourship, all as you soak in the sun and warmth of a lazy day. You don’t have to imagine anymore. New South Wales is that place, and we’re working hard to bring your superyacht dreams to life. We’re the marinas, shipyards, refit companies, agents, and all the other businesses that cater to you and your guests. Your cruise is our mission. And we’re dedicated to making your cruise an unforgettable one. We’re New South Wales (NSW), Australia’s most populous state, with over 7 million people and over 600 nautical miles of pristine coastline. Within our state, you’ll find the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), the Jervis Bay Territory, and of course, Sydney. Sydney, the capital of NSW and Australia’s largest city, glitters like a diamond on the coast. You know about its Opera House and Harbour Bridge, but Sydney is also a world-class superyacht destination, with all the refit services you need and all the luxuries and comforts you crave, all in a magnificent setting.But we’re more than just Sydney. So much more. Just to the north is Newcastle, where you can get your ship refitted at state-of-the-art shipyards. Port Stephens, where you can enjoy game fishing, scuba diving, and wind surfing. Farther north ou’ll find the picturesque towns of Port Macquarie, Trial Bay and Coffs Harbour, all beckoning you to explore them. Beyond them you’ll find new adventures and a subtropical paradise in Byron Bay and the Clarence River. South of Sydney you’ll find the treasures of the South Coast, including Jervis Bay, Batemans Bay, and Eden. But don’t limit yourself to the coastline. In the Southern Alps, you can enjoy skiing and other winter sports in toprated resorts. If you love wine, the Hunter Valley near Newcastle will become one of your favourite haunts. We’ve got so much to offer, and you’ve got so much to enjoy. Let’s get started. The NSW coast Our treasure, your delight. This is what you’re here for: the bustling ports of Sydney and Newcastle. The posh resort town of Byron Bay. The sparkling inlets of the Sapphire Coast. Few places in the world can offer you so many superyacht thrills. From the Queensland border in the north, to the Victorian border in the south, NSW delivers year-round cruising excitement. It doesn’t get any better than this. If you love an easy ride, you’ll love NSW. South-bound ships can hitch a free ride on the East Coast Current, which flows at up to 4 knots along the 100-fathom line. Those tracking north can cruise close to shore to avoid the current and glimpse the many adventures awaiting them on land. It doesn’t get much simpler than this. And go beyond the coast. NSW offers you many navigable rivers, some with challenging bar crossings, but all worth the challenge. With so many places to go, choosing a river to explore may be the greatest challenge of all.
Since prior to the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, NSW has actively promoted itself internationally as a destination for visiting superyachts, attracting over 350 superyachts to NSW waters since then.
