Get out of Brisbane for the Commonwealth Games

Do you live in Brisbane or the Gold Coast and want to escape the hustle and bustle of the Commonwealth Games in 2018?

With the Commonwealth Games coinciding with the Queensland Easter school holidays, why not take the opportunity to escape to the peace and quiet of the Whitsunday Islands? You could even rent your home out on AirBNB and make some money while you’re gone.

Just a short flight north of Brisbane, the Whitsundays offer perfect sailing and boating waters. There are 74 islands to explore, countless bays and inlets, with coral reefs, plenty of marine life, and some of the most beautiful sunsets you’ve ever seen. Even though it’s school holidays. we reckon you can still find some secluded spots and be the only people on the beach!

Hire a bareboat yacht, catamaran or power boat, and you can explore these beautiful islands at your own pace. We’ll guide you with a comprehensive boat and area briefing before you set off on your own itinerary. You don’t need a licence or sailing qualification, just enough experience to handle the boat safely.

If you would like to talk to an expert about choosing a boat, whether you have enough experience, or just how bareboating works in general, give the team at Whitsunday Escape a call. We can then help you pick the best boat/s to suit your needs.
