New Public Moorings and Reef Protection Markers for Bareboat Charterers in the Whitsundays 4:26pm, Thu 22 Feb 2018
There is a new complement of public moorings and reef protection markers recently installed around the Whitsundays, allowing bareboat charterers more options for secure overnight anchorages and help protect remaining coral cover.
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service announced an additional 60 moorings have been added to the already 85 that were in place, bringing the total mooring count to 145! Some were added to anchorages that already had some in place, while others were installed in bays and anchorages that previously didn't have any which means more places for bareboat charterers to explore.
Chalkies Beach: 9 new moorings - a great alternative spot to the southern end of Whitehaven Beach as it has the same white silica sand and some snorkelling.
