Top 5 places to take your boat out on the water

Australia is home to 25,760 kilometers of coastline, and in our little part of the nations, there’s plenty of it to explore. At Terrace Boating, we think the best way to do that is in a boat. If you’re looking for some great places to take your boat this summer, here are some picture perfect spots to make some memories on the water.

Port Stephens

We have to start with the wonders of our local environment, Port Stephens. From Nelson Bay to Shoal Bay and Lemon Tree Passage to Soldier’s Point, there’s just too many great destinations to choose from.

Popular for boating, swimming and fishing, Port Stephens is an Aussie gem. Marinas abound, and whether you’re in a boat or kayak, there’s something for you. For more information on boating in Port Stephens, see here

Lake Macquarie

Another local area worth exploring is Lake Macquarie. You can try Warners Bay, Swansea Channel or Nord’s Wharf, Marmong Point and much more.

Whether you’re wanting a relaxing day on the water, or you’d like to do some serious fishing, this is the place! For more information on boating in Lake Macquarie, see here.

Upper Hunter

The Upper Hunter may be inland, but it is still home to some beautiful lakes and rivers. For example, Lake Glenbawn and Lake St. Clair are both popular destinations for boats and water sports alike.
