Hobart to Southport Passage / 1000 Nm / 16 Days / Cat 1 Coastal Passage

The Hobart to Southport passage is a Cat 1, – 1,000nm passage from Hobart, Australia’s most southern port, to Southport on the sunny Queensland Gold Coast. This is a unique opportunity to sail the famous 630nm Sydney to Hobart Race course in reverse while stopping at a number of ports, islands and anchorages to enjoy many of the sights along the passage before continuing north to Southport.

We will plan around the weather and select from a number of stopover options that include

  • Port Arthur
  • Wineglass Bay
  • Flinders Island
  • Eden
  • Sydney
  • Pittwater
  • Broughton Island
  • Port Stephens
  • Iluka
  • Coffs Harbour
  • The route we take and recommended anchorages are based on careful research, professional meteorological advice and detailed local sailing knowledge.

The Tasmanian coastline includes some of the most extreme maritime scenery in Australia. The voyage starts with a visit to the nineteenth-century convict settlement of Port Arthur and unforgettable views of the towering dolerite cliffs of Cape Raoul, Cape Pillar and Tasman Island. Then it is north along the East coast to Maria Island, the stunning Schouten Passage and Wineglass Bay with bright white beaches and pink granite mountains rising steeply out of the sea. We then head across the Bass Strait via a possible island stopover, to the safe harbour of Eden, before continuing on up the coast for our next anchorage in Sydney or Pittwater.

The central and northern New South Wales coast provides us with the opportunity to stop at picturesque locations such as Broughton Island, Port Stephens, Iluka and Coffs Harbour, as we trek north and take advantage of the beautiful changing nature of this section of the Australian coastline, as we sail toward warmer weather and clearer skies.
