Triabunna is the largest town on the east coast of Tasmania, Australia and although it has limited facilities for yachtsmen it is a useful start/end point for crossing the Bass Strait and as a stop on passages to and from Hobart.

The entrance channel is well marked and sheltered but quite shallow. Attempt this with a reasonable tide only.


Triabunna is not a port of entry.


There is space to tie up on the main dock in town. Be prepared to make way for fishing boats.

Marinas & Yacht Clubs

There appears to be a new marina on the river opposite town, but I am unfamiliar with it. The phone number is on a board near the entrance. Best to come alongside a fishing boat and contact marina. Very friendly.

  • Delatbabel - I stopped here on several return Sydney/Hobart race legs. It is a popular port for the smaller boats to visit but the entry channel has insufficient depth for the maxi yachts.
