Superyacht Explorer °a journey of discovery

A superyachting guide to Asia Pacific cruising destinations, with sample itineraries
The Asia-Pacific is one of the last havens of untouched cruising in the world


Visitors to Australia will be spoilt for choice. Moor up in the heart of New South Wales’ Sydney for some of Australia’s most famous icons, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, Taronga Zoo, Bondi Beach, Darling Harbour and Luna Park. Cruising in the inner harbour is truly spectacular, as is tying up under the iconic bridge, and from there it’s a short drive to the majestic Blue Mountains.

In Queensland, the capital Brisbane has good superyacht facilities and is the gateway to  sun, sand and surf on the Gold Coast and the quieter though no less beautiful Sunshine Coast.

In the north, the rainforest meets the reef at the Daintree Rainforest. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the Seven Wonders, and Cairns Marlin Marina, which is on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, is a world-class facility which offers custom-designed berths as well as acting as gateway to the spectacular Reef - without doubt a bucket list destination.

Superyachts have visited Cairns for more than 17 years and the marina is located in the heart of the city, within walking distance to the casino, restaurants, bars and cafes.

Cruise around the Whitsundays and claim one of the 74 islands for yourself. In particular, don’t miss Whitehaven Beach, one of the world’s best beaches.

For those heading inland, Daintree Rainforest in Far North Queensland is more than 135 million years old and is the oldest rainforest in the world.

Don’t miss multi-cultural Melbourne where you’ll tie up in Docklands, in the heart of the city. Melbourne leads the pack in Australian cuisine and beautifully demonstrates the country’s approach to food - incredible quality and freshness, beautifully prepared in innovative surroundings - without pomp or standing on ceremony. Head to Western Australia for a taste of isolation. Take a camel ride along a deserted beach, head into the desert for a taste of real quiet in the vast red interior.

Up north, Darwin is the capital of the Northern Territory and it’s from here that you can most easily reach the Kimberley - a vast corner of Australia, formed of landscapes created before the dinosaurs. Cruise the Kimberley’s river systems to moor up under waterfalls and walk in spots where no human has been before.

Back in Darwin, also known as the Top End, go crocodile spotting on the Adelaide River, swim in the waterholes of Litchfield National Park, or sit down for a meal or drink on Darwin’s bustling waterfront.
