Nara Inlet

Located at the southern end of Hook Island, Nara Inlet is a deep fjord-like expanse, surrounded either side by magnificent lush green slopes which dive down into the clear turquoise waters and fringing reef. Navigate your way to the end of this scenic and secluded bay where you’ll find the perfect anchorage for stepping ashore and exploring your beautiful surroundings.

No visit to Nara Inlet should be without a trip through the bush to the Aboriginal caves in the steep wooded hills surrounding the inlet, showing signs of Aboriginal habituation going back some eight thousand years. The recently developed Ngaro Sea Trial cultural site is a must on the itinerary in order to learn more about the traditional owners of the Whitsunday Islands and the history of its indigenous inhabitants.

Bordered on both sides by piles of shells and decorated with intricate markings and paintings, these slices of ancient history are worthy of a quick stop before moving onwards to the rock pools and beautiful waterfall. Flowing only during the rainy season, the delightful rainwater filled pools and cool cascading shower of the waterfall provide a welcome relief from the warm Australian sun. Just before dusk, head back onboard for an evening refreshment as you gaze out across the bay watching the yachts bobbing up and down against a backdrop of lofty green hills and catch the last warm rays of the Australian sun before it dips down over the horizon.
