Five Day Itinerary

Day One

* Follow the suggestion for day one in the three-day itinerary - it's such a great start to a holiday.

Day Two

* Cruise across to Riviera Nautic for a cafe latte to start your day.
* Then head for the Bunga Arm. This is a fantastic stretch of water with the ocean beach lying just beyond the sand dunes. Cruise along the Arm until you come to the 1st blow hole and moor onto the beach.
* Be sure to be on deck as the sun goes down, so that you see the wonderful sunset with all the colours extending down the length of the Arm.
* When you spend the night here, you fall to sleep to the sound of the waves breaking on the ocean beach.

Day Three

* Start the day with a swim or a run along the beach and then you'll have justified a huge cooked breakfast. We often have breakfast while slowly motoring along the Arm - it's a meal like you'd never experience at home.
* Wattle Point in Lake Victoria makes a nice destination for lunch, and this is also a good spot to swim. You could start with the swim, then set out a delicious range of antipasto foods to be eaten in total luxury and informality on the deck.
* From here you can head to Duck Arm a very pretty and very sheltered spot for the night. Here, you can moor on the beach just inside the entrance, swing from one of the buoys or drop your anchor. Our favourite spot is the buoy just inside Picnic Arm. Gently swinging here while reading and sipping a glass of wine - it's hard to imagine anything more restful.

Day Four

* After breakfast, head for Paynesville if you need supplies, then for Sperm Whale Head for a barbecue lunch. You'll be watched greedily by the kangaroos. There are some excellent walking tracks here so that you get some exercise!
* The Tambo River is a lovely contrast to the open lake waters and a great place to head for an overnight stay. If you're on a cruiser, you can go as far as the Cliffs which is very peaceful.
* If you're on a yacht, stay closer to the mouth of the Tambo as you won't want to waste too much sailing time motoring along the river. Sometimes you can be lucky to have the wind is in just the right quarter for a gentle run up the river until you come to a bend!
* The Tambo is a favourite fishing spot. The best catches are usually in the evening and early morning. And on hot days, swimming in the river is blissful.

Day Five

* Head to Raymond Island for koala spotting and lunch. Wouldn't it be lovely to linger over lunch for the whole afternoon - but you need to be back at Riviera Nautic by 3pm to end your holiday.
