Bareboat your way to Whitsunday events
There are so many awesome Whitsunday events throughout the year. In case you need more reasons to come to the Whitsundays, we’ve got an event calendar chock a block full of all kinds of different events. Fun, exciting, challenging, sporting, whether you are a spectator or participant, there’s plenty happening.
Of course you’ll need accommodation for these events. Have you thought about hiring a bareboat for your event accommodation? Once you have booked your boat, you can then park it in the marina for a low berthing fee to access the events on the mainland or the Whitsunday Islands. In some cases, you can even take your boat to the event, and anchor up right there! How cool is that?
Either way, you will get a relaxing holiday in addition to the event, so grab some friends, make a week of it and let’s go bareboating!
