Can we stay overnight on the boats or take the boat away for the weekend?
Of course! A AIRBNB type stay is catered for during “off season” months at New Quay marina overnight because of its charming location with many restaurants around the marina. Other members take the boat and stay in seclcuded and interesting places around the bay. Queenscliff is very popular because of its location with a brand new marina and a convenient ten-minute walk to the centre of town.
