Make Your Next Yachting Trip to Brisbane Special with a Membership at RQYS

Are you planning a Brisbane yachting trip for some time within the next few months? Are you a member of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in Manly, Australia? If not, then now might be the perfect time to enrol. Not only do we have fantastic facilities and amenities in Manly where you can moor or store your yacht, but we also have a secluded island getaway near Brisbane that can make your next yachting adventure that much more memorable.

Our Yachting Brisbane Destination

When RQYS members go yachting up to Brisbane, they can drop anchor at our island getaway destination, RQYS Canaipa. This outpost of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron and is a true one of a kind retreat. Situated on the northeast tip of Russell Island, the RQYS Canaipa location offers a rustic and remote getaway from the bustle and crowds that populate so many coastal areas. Moor up at our anchorage and enjoy the views—especially splendid around sunset time. Alternatively, come ashore and enjoy a drink, have a barbeque or take a dip in our swimming pool.

Regardless of how you choose to spend your time at RQYS Canaipa, you can be rest assured that you will have privacy, peace, and quiet. This part of the island is private property belonging to the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, and only members are allowed to access and use the area and its facilities. There is even a full-time caretaker on the premises who watches and take care of the property, helping to ward off potential trespassers.

You don’t need to be a billionaire to get a private island getaway. Instead, just become a member of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron and then plan a yachting vacation up to Brisbane. RQYS Canaipa is about a three-hour drive from Brisbane but is located just across the water from the Australian coast. If you are taking a boat trip up to the area, it’s easily accessible and a great place to choose as the home base for your trip.
