Established in 1946, Southport Yacht Club is known worldwide for its exceptional sailing and power boat fraternities, award winning boating facilities and its exceptional and exclusive waterfront dining.

The Waterfront Restaurant within the Main Beach Clubhouse also went through extreme upgrade in late 2008, having the western end of the clubhouse knocked down and completely re-built, the waterfront restaurant boasts a relaxing atmosphere complemented with exceptional seasonal menus whilst the Compass Room offers an exclusive setting for corporate, private functions and wedding receptions all year round. We are proud to invite you to visit Southport Yacht Club, acknowledged to be second to none on the East Coast of Australia.
