5 Night Itinerary - North
We’re inviting you to explore the Fraser Coast! We love everything about the Fraser Coast, especially the fact we get to explore the iconic Fraser Island (K’gari). We have put together this 5 night itinerary sailing our northern anchorages on your own private yacht.
There is so much to see and experience! Did we mention from July to September you can witness the mother and calf humpback whales playing in the bay? It is a bucket list experience.
Remember: our team is here to advise you on the best anchorages to suit the current weather conditions at any given time and this itinerary is just a guide.

After a comprehensive briefing by a licensed skipper, you’ll be taken out of the Great Sandy Straits Marina and be able to head off on your sailing holiday. The first anchorage for your 5 Night North itinerary is Moon Point. Here you can enjoy a stunning sunset with some drinks and a cheese platter. Don’t forget to check out Pelican Bank on your way north, you will marvel at the stunning white sand and crystal clear waters.
