A new website has been developed specially for superyachts wanting to visit Australia, but there's much information there that could be useful for the 'normal' long-range cruising yacht as well - weather and tides, suggested itineraries, quarantine (particularly challenging in Australia) and other formalities.

The website also includes links to Government information and ‘How to Enter’ Australia. It also features Australia’s latest industry news. The website is a portal to the Australian Superyacht industry offering a one stop shop for those interested in coming down under.
