How to embrace a slower pace of travel in 2021

As 2020 draws to a close, there’s a lot for many of us to reflect on and in Australia we’re lucky to be able to start spending some more quality time with mates and loved ones after being separated through lockdowns and border closures. We're also ready to embrace a slower pace of travel for the future.

We’re going to go ahead and call it - 2021 is the year of slow travel. The year that we continue the trend of 2020 and get out and explore the incredible backyard that we have in Australia and may have overlooked in the past. 

What exactly is slow travel? A holiday or trip that emphasises connection.

If you’re looking to connect to nature, wildlife, your loved ones and even yourself, you can’t go past a holiday that allows you to travel without a set itinerary and no end destination in mind, one that is completely about the journey.

For the ultimate slow travel bliss, pack your bags, grab those loved ones and jump on board a bareboat sailing charter with us along the untouched western coast of World Heritage-listed Fraser Island (the largest sand island in the world).

How does it work? Basically, you get to hire out your own private sailing yacht (no license required), choose the number of days you’d like to spend on our protected oceans and bring your own food, drinks and other holiday essentials - we’ll sort the rest.

A bareboat sailing holiday means you don’t need to set an itinerary, you can spend one night or five at an anchorage and you’ll get the chance to really immerse yourself in the nature and beauty of this spectacular region.

While on charter you’ll witness a coastline that seems to stretch forever, small islands that hold a wealth of local history, a variety of wildlife, world class fishing action, amazing sunsets and shipwrecks to explore.

If you’re keen to bring some slow travel into your life, check out our bareboat charters or send us an enquiry and we’ll help you start the planning process.
