Further afield, around Metung/Paynesville there are narrow creeks and private berths where one could spend a considerable time aboard without anyone being overtly worried.. but a capital city? Nope. Doesn't happen.

The nearest alternative would be a boat-sized apartment at Yarra's Edge with the boat parked in the marina down below - for ~$10k/year plus costs..

Melbourne is undoubtedly tougher tha Sydney. In Sydney it can within reason be done.

Just checked the marina live aboard policy in WA and read live aboard travelers are allowed in ALL public marinas with facilities ashore for periods up to six months.

Re: Australian Marina's that allow liveaboard

Hi I know no more than that except to say five years or so ago I had my yacht in two or three marinas in Queensland (Cairns and Townsville ) and never had a worry. I only stayed a few weeks in them just the same. Apart from insurance, no one even asked what I was doing. There was only my ex and i and we obviously were travelers. I'm in The Philippines now and are soon to return to Aust.

Re: Australian Marina's that allow liveaboard

HI Emce
No prob in the Philippines? my wife is from Bicol in Luzon and no way will she want our yacht to be in the Southern parts, as low as Bohol; she said and that's it; even there is only a short hop to Mindano but at least better patrolled by the navy...
Cheers
Will

Re: Australian Marina's that allow liveaboard

Hi No no probs here. We're in Samal island marina (yes the one that the rebels took the hostages from) and we were there then but now it would be the safest marina in Asia. (Five or six heavily soldiers patrol the marina itself plus a small naval patrol boat 24/7 plus four armed guards on the marina entry gates.
It was a real pity the kidnapping because the marina is clean and well run. (Cleaner than many in Aust and better run than any I've been in in Aust.
