Boating Guide to NSW
Residing on an island continent, Australians have always been drawn to the sea, with approximately 85 per cent of Australians today living within 50 kilometres of the coast.
From First Nation Peoples who sustained communities for tens of thousands of years from the bounty of our shores to European settlers arriving by sailing ships, the ocean has always been an integral element in Australia’s evolution.
Abundant coastlines, waterways and river systems lure us to their shores year-round to mess around in boats of all sizes from paddle boards to super yachts. Australians have won accolades on the world stage for our maritime endeavours, while most of us learnt to swim not long after we learned to walk.
Aquatic activities are in our blood and boating is no exception, with almost 2.6 million Australians living in a household with a boat (according to a 2016 Roy Morgan survey).
In the book Boating Guide to NSW: Short Stays and Long Weekends you’ll find inspiration, ideas and planning tips for your next NSW boating adventure.
Whether you plan to voyage along the entire coast or simply cruise to a nearby bay for lunch at a waterfront restaurant, this guide will help you plan your next boating getaway.
