Discover: Queen Margarethe Bay

As seafaring vessels, Integrity Motor Yachts have cruised a significant amount of 60,000 kilometres of Australian sovereign coastline.  There are so many remote bays, hidden coves and uninhabited islands to discover so let’s start with Queen Margarethe Bay.

On the southern coast of Shaw Island – one of the southernmost islands in the Whitsunday Group – sits Queen Margarethe Bay.  Only a two to two and half hour 9-knot cruise from Hamilton Island, it is rarely visited and best in a northerly or westerly.  The bay is fringed by reef and you can anchor easily between them diving directly from the boat on the bommies.  There are no moorings, but the anchoring is pretty straight forward as the bay gently deepens.  The reef is not the best the Whitsundays has to offer however, you are guaranteed to have it to yourself.

Ashore, there is a large white sandy tree-lined beach with an idyllic creek running to its eastern edge.  The creek empties into a lagoon just behind the foreshore and is complete with sea turtle and plenty of shady places for a lunch picnic.  The expansive beach gently slopes into the Coral Sea at a slow pace making it an ideal place for young swimmers to enjoy water play.  As part of the Green Zone, there is no fishing however, it is great a place to swim, kayak, SUP, snorkel or simply enjoy the solitude.
