Gateway to The Great Barrier Reef

Australian Superyacht Services welcomes you to Cairns and the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef & Wet Tropics Rainforest; the only place on Earth where two World Heritage-listed areas meet.

Captain Pat McLoughlin and Nikki Guimelli are your agents in beautiful Cairns. Whatever your requirements and no matter how large or small your vessel they have the experience and local knowledge to ensure a smooth and seamless Tropical North Queensland experience for your vessel, guests and crew.

Cairns is located in Queensland, 1682km North of Brisbane, 2407km North of Sydney or 2551km North of Australia’s capital city, Canberra and at 16’55.5’S, 145’47’E. Cairns is a nominated First Port of Entry.

As well as being the closest port to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns has all the amenities that any visiting vessel could hope for. Australian Superyacht Services pride themselves on offering a premium class service including pilotage, immigration (including the superyacht crew visas), quarantine and customs clearances, berth bookings, cruising permits, provisioning, guest liaison and support (including private plane/helicopter arrivals and departures), bunkering, refits and works and of course the seamless transfer of vessels throughout Australian waters. We can also take care of the paperwork and applications for vessels wishing to charter in Australian waters.

Here we enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year, a relaxed friendly and tropical lifestyle, beautiful surroundings, tropical islands and of course the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns itself is a modern city with a brand new Domestic Airport as well as an International Airport with gateways to Australasia, Asia and beyond. The city is vibrant and alive with world class shopping, dining, entertainment and cultural facilities. Outside of the city you have the tropical islands and resorts, Cairns and regional resorts, stunning national parks and breath-taking vistas in every direction.

With our extensive experience of the Superyacht Industry, Australian Superyacht Services will ensure that your vessel’s visit to FNQ (Far North Queensland) is unforgettable.
