Mooring at Gladstone or Yeppoon, Australia

Heading to Gladstone/Mackay area and looking to leave 36ft yacht preferably at a pile mooring or other. Even contemplating leaving it on anchor for a few weeks in a suitable spot. Can anyone recommend a suitable anchorage or better still a pile mooring.

Re: Mooring at Gladstone or Yeppoon, Australia

The marina at Gladestone ran by the Port Authority is as reasonable as you will get these days. Considering, the service is friendly and amenities good. They have a few swing moorings, but I would be phoning ahead to check availibitity. They might even know the details of the piles around the corner.

I believe Gladstone marina now has a 3 week limit, you should be able to get a mooring or anchor at Rockhampton, contact the fitzroy motor boat club FMBC. Read Cruising The Coral Coast for details.
