Port Hacking is a pretty waterway just to the south of Sydney. The heads of Port Hacking are about 18 nm south of Sydney heads and so it's an easy day sail.

Warning: Not all of the channel markers were shown on my recent charts including the relatively recently updated Navionics chart.

There is an overhead power cable running from Burraneer on the north side of the port to Maianbar on the south side. My charts show this as 12 m above MHWS and the signs on approach say that the maximum vessel height is 9m, but I had no problems passing under at high tide with a 15.5m mast. My estimate is that at the northern end the cable is more than 25 m above MHWS.

Be aware that even in the national park side of Port Hacking there are many high speed power boats and ski boats operating. You will get a quiet night's sleep but be prepared to be woken up early by the power boats who seem to start at first light.


Describe here the berthing options of this port. Are there moorings or you have to anchor? Do most boats moor side-to, stern-to, or bow-to? Etc.

There are a few anchorages around Port Hacking, the main one being South West Arm. Be aware that you need good depth of tide to pass through the channel on the way through Port Hacking, my estimate would be that 1 m above MLWS would be a good guess of the least depth in the constantly shifting channel, so take that into account (and your draft) before estimating the tide level you need to enter.
