  2. The Sheer Pleasure of Boating So the idea of owning a boat and being on the water has crossed your mind, what a great idea, how and where do I start. Some thought as to what you think you may want to do and where you want to go on your boat will assist you and us in finding the right boat for you. Whether you want to set a few crab pots in the local estuary, race around the buoys in a sailing club regatta, offshore fish, overnight on your boat, live on your boat, coastal cruise, plan to completely leave your comfort zone and ready yourself to see parts of Australia or the world, in that life changing experience that you have only ever dreamed of. Historically world adventure could really only be achieved by sail, even that, as with many other things about boating has changed. You can certainly sail, in greater safety and comfort than has ever been previously possible, you can motor in Passage-makers, you can have your boat, sail or power, “piggybacked” on to a dedicated boat transporter and go boating in exotic locations without the time or challengers of getting it there yourself. There is just something really special about being out on the water, the solitude or the inclusion of family or friends, being the only boat at your favourite anchorage to being rafted up with 5 or 6 others, boating can offer it all.
  3. Seqwater is the Queensland Government statutory authority responsible for providing a safe, secure and cost-effective bulk drinking water supply for 3.1 million people across South East Queensland. We also: provide essential flood mitigation services manage catchment health and offer community recreation facilities provide water for irrigation to about 1,200 farmers across seven water supply schemes. We are one of Australia’s largest water businesses with the most geographically spread and diverse asset base of any capital city water authority. Our operations extend from the New South Wales border to the base of the Toowoomba ranges and north to Gympie. We manage up to $12 billion of water supply assets - including the SEQ Water Grid - and the natural catchments of the region’s major water supply sources. This includes dams, weirs, conventional water treatment plants and climate resilient sources of water through the Gold Coast Desalination Plant and the Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme. A 600 kilometre reverse flow pipeline network enables drinking water to be transported around the region, from the Sunshine Coast to Greater Brisbane, to Redlands and south to the Gold Coast. Seqwater also manages recreation facilities at our dams, lakes and parks that provide more than 50% of the green space in SEQ outside of national parks. We live and work in the region, so we know how important it is to do our job with a focus on safety, quality, reliability and value-for-money – because we depend on it too. South East Queensland is our home and we are determined to shape and deliver the region’s future prosperity. Seqwater was formed on 1 January 2013 through a merger of three State-owned water businesses, the SEQ Water Grid Manager, LinkWater and the former Seqwater. We also assumed some responsibilities undertaken by the former Queensland Water Commission, such as the long term planning of the region's future water needs.

Save time and simply start your engine, and you’ll arrive at your destination in no time at all. Convenience abounds from both land and sea, with direct and easy access by car and boat. It’s an ideal location for Brisbane residents to head south on the M1 and take Exit 61 with plenty of free and secure parking available.
