The Tasmanian Anchorage Guide is published by the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania to enable passage planning and to provide details of possible shelter usable by small craft cruising on the Tasmanian coast. 

The information is provided as a guide only and is intended for use in conjunction with the Australian Pilot, Australian charts and other cruising publications.

The Tasmanian Anchorage Guide has 7 sections and a detailed index that cover the Tasmanian coast starting from Hobart and traversing the coast in an anticlockwise direction – in the same direction as the Van Diemens Land Circumnavigation cruises.

Mud-maps of most anchorages and cruising areas are included adjacent to their descriptions.

1 – General information about cruising in Tasmanian waters.

This is the sixth edition of their Tasmanian Anchorage Guide, now with coloured maps of all their recommended anchorages around Tasmania, it is an essential guide to cruising one of the most beautiful and secluded cruising areas in Australia.

It was originally prepared in 1992 for participants in the Van Diemen’s Land Circumnavigation cruise. The Tasmanian Anchorage Guide provides significant coverage of most of the anchorages in Tasmania in the following sections:

  • Hobart to the Freycinet Peninsula up to Coles Bay
  • The East and North East Coasts
  • The Furneaux & Kent Groups
  • The North Coast including the Tamar River and King Island
  • The West Coast including Macquarie Harbour and Port Davey
  • The D’Entrecasteux Channel includes the Huon River Recherche Bay and Bruny Island.

A detailed description of each anchorage is provided highlighting: how to approach, relevant lights and leads, where to anchor, what wind and sea conditions it is suitable for, whether it is affected by swell and what facilities might exist.

Some of the anchorages are covered with a high level of detail, especially the secluded but extensive west coast anchorages of Macquarie Harbour and Port Davey, including information on bushwalks and points of interest.

The Bathurst Harbour coverage includes the passage to Melaleuca Lagoon with soundings shown on a 1956 hand-drawn chart from A.C.N. Wyatt off the ketch Saona. An introductory section covers the history of the Guide, relevant marine charts and publications, biosecurity issues, passage distances and coastal radio stations.
