Newbie Saying G'day

G'day to the people on this site. I'm 62, live in North Queensland and a retired motor mechanic. The reson I'm visiting your group is to get some feedback on some ideas about cruising the top half of Australia.
Hopefully there are some other Australians using the site. I enjoy reading the forums for 2 reasons, firstly the wonderfully well mannered, civilsed manner in which queries are treated and secondly the wealth of knowledge available from the group.
I have some queries regarding marine diesel engine fuel consumption but will post them in the correct ( hopefully ) section.
My plan is to take a diesel cruiser from here in Cairns and follow the coast to approx the same latitude on the west coast of Australia. Rough calculation of about 6,000 NM. This would be done in stages as camping ashore and fishing most areas would take up quite some time.
