Thanks guys. We have done Lake Maquarie (Sydney) to Yamba in a Piver
Nimble so we are aware of this part of the coast, but thats not to say we missed a lot of great places. We stayed at Newcastle and decided to go to Broughton Island instead of Port Stephens last time. But I regret not going and we will surely get there this time as I have heard it is beautiful. We stopped at Coffs as my mate used to live there and his Dad still does.
Sydney Harbor is a definite place we want to go. I have scanned google earth
and found a few places but I am not sure how suitable they are to get in. I will ask more direct questions later on. Do you think it might be worth a stop at Tassie? Are the island in Bass straight worth a look?
I guess the east coast
is not much of a drama for us but our concerns are more about Bass straight and the treacherous looking coast of Vic and SA. Google
maps doesn't show a lot of easy safe harbors along some sections a few 100km long, just rock cliffs
But on closer inspection
there are small bays which you can sometimes zoom in on to find boats anchored. So who has cruised this area?
Here are a few pics of our last trip because everyone loves pics.
First 2 are Broughton Island, Forster and a new years eve gale which had us rip a jib
and break a shroud
. last pic is Christmas
morning. Felt good to see the sun and the wind
die back down. Good experience though.
We will try to take good video and pics of this whole trip.
