Whether you have a jet ski, are looking to buy one or are hoping to win one, the most crucial thing to figure out is where to take it so you can get the best use out of it.
No matter where you’re located in Australia, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to tell you the 5 best places to ride your jet ski around the city.
The Murray River
We’re kicking it off with the big one - the Murray River. Spanning 3 states, this one is a popular one for jet skiing and many other watersports.
Spanning from the border of South Australia and right through the Victoria and New South Wales borders, there are plenty of regions to take your jet ski out. Whether you’re a beginner or pro, you’ll find the perfect spot.
Plus, there’s plenty of camping spots to choose from too!
Somerset Dam, Queensland
If you’re located in Queensland, take the trip to Somerset Dam. Just over an hour west of Brisbane, Somerset is a popular spot for jet skiers and water skiers alike.
The best part is, you can turn it into a proper weekend away by camping overnight - remember to pack the essential CAOS camping gear before you leave though!
Moreton Bay Beaches, Queensland
The best part about jet skiing is having the ability to explore - and in the Moreton Bay area, there’s no shortage of places to discover.
You’ll be spoilt for choice for places to launch from and from there you can have a look around Redcliffe, Manly, Clontarf, Nudgee Beach and even take the popular crossing to Tangalooma.
Hawkesbury River, New South Wales
If you’re around Sydney, Hawkesbury River is a popular destination for jet skiing and a visit you certainly won’t regret. With minimal wind and no sharks or stingers, you’ll be able to fly along the water to your heart’s content - just watch out for swimmers and any blind corners!
Lake Eildon, Victoria
This massive freshwater lake is a popular spot when it comes to jet skiing and watersports. Being six times the size of Sydney Harbour, there is plenty of space for a variety of waterport and activities.
It’s 2 hours away from Melbourne so if you aren’t up for the drive there and back all in one day, there are plenty of camping options available - right on the river bed too!
