Readers tell us their favourite boating and fishing destinations in our Garmin giveaway.


In our Garmin GPSMAP 78SC giveaway, we want you to tell us what makes your favourite hideaway so special. Here are your thoughts on some of Australia’s most inspiring boating destinations.


Dawn Nockolds on Walpole, WA

"Walpole being on the south coast of Western Australia is idyllic for boating. There are two inlets, two rivers, the unpredictable mouth out to the ocean with all the moods of mother"





Scott Spyve on Yellow Patch, Moreton Bay Island, Qld

"Yellow Patch has a great anchorage, next to a beautiful orange dune that it gets its name. Our family go for a weekend and fish for estuary fish, the kids climb the dune and we fish the islands on the way home for reefies. And Garmin gets us there safely."

David Gerke on Wineglass Bay, Tas

"Glide into Wineglass Bay’s crystal clear unpolluted Waters, throw the pick and watch the flathead scatter 10 meters below, a quick plunge over the side will guarantee a bounty of cray"
