Australian Boating Holiday Hotspots

boating holiday Australia

With over 290 marinas available, Cobra RIBs recommend Australia as the ideal destination for your next boating holiday. With a wide range of locations along both the east and west coasts of Australia, you’ll find no shortage of locations to visit, sights to see, along with a myriad of services and facilities available for you and your party.

Australia plays host to some of the most popular cruising grounds in the world, so unsurprisingly some marinas can get overcrowded in peak seasons. Some also offer better facilities than others.

To help you decide where to go, we have teamed up with our new Australian partner Mac Marine Group to describe the best marina hotspots to visit for your Australian boating holiday.
