August boating destinations

Destinations to check out in August include Australia’s western and northeastern coastlines, where spring is making a welcome return, kick-starting the Southern Hemisphere’s yachting season. 

Not sure where’s best to drop anchor this month? Here are some of the best yachting destinations to visit with your yacht charter this August.

Kimberley Region

With spring making a welcome return across the Southern Hemisphere, the Kimberley Region bursts back into life. With average daily temperatures of 21°c, fewer clouds and plenty of sunshine, it’s a haven for yacht charters looking for the weird and wonderful.

Begin your trip in Broome before checking out the ice-white sands of Silica Beach. The tidal Horizontal Falls, Montgomery Reef, Prince Regent River, Hunter River, Mitchell River and King George Falls are all popular destinations to visit in August. 


Nested on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays are a little slice of heaven on earth. Made up of 74 picture-perfect tropical islands, it is the ultimate destination for those looking to head beneath the waves.

Some of the most popular destinations in the Whitsundays include Hamilton Island, Neck Island, Whitehaven Beach, Hook Island, Bait Reef Lagoon, Butterfly Bay, Hayman Island and Stonehaven – each perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving, watersports, lazy beach days and reconnecting with nature. August tends to have few rainy days with daily temperatures hovering around 20°c – perfect for an early spring yacht charter.
