The Last Eden
Unique, remote, beautiful PORT DAVEY
Cruising Helmsman magazine – February 2017
Abel Tasman may have sailed right past it in 1642, but the chart he produced showed only a smooth coastline, keeping beautiful unique Port Davey hidden for another one hundred and sixty years. Until in 1798, along came Matthew Flinders with his good friend George Bass in the tiny Norfolk, out to prove Tasmania was indeed an island.
With stunning photographs and detailed descriptions of anchorages and attractions, the article is complete with historical details and interesting anecdotes of the aboriginal clans and early pioneers.
Phil Ross, editor of Cruising Helmsman says,
“You just know you have a great issue of Cruising Helmsman to read when you start with a front cover image like this.
The February issue is out and it includes a update from the venerable Jack and Jude Binder regarding one of their favourite cruising spots: Port Davey on Tasmania’s west coast.
This couple continually sail around Australia and publish DVDs and blogs to assist others to do the same. Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour may certainly be on the wild side of Tasmania, but Jack and Jude provide all the detail you need to make a safe trip for yourself to enjoy this amazing part of Australia.
