Brisbane Water Entrance

The entrance to Brisbane Water is a tricky one, but it is well marked and not too difficult for a vessel with less than 2m draft as long as you:

1. Stay close to the eastern shore, where you can see the darker water.

2. Approach at about 2/3 of a rising tide.

3. Try it when the wind is from the east or northeast but not when it is blowing strong from the south or southwest.

The sandy shoals to the west should be avoided, especially during southerly winds so stay close to the land.

Once inside there are some lovely beaches and the Bouddi National Park offers some excellent bushwalks and good surfing.

Blue numbers are depths in metres.
