Well I assume you mean the boat is on the coast - not in central Queensland - a bit high and dry if it is
Anyway, wherever you will be starting your trip from (Mackay?) then Moreton Bay down to Southport/Gold Coast is worth a week before your trip starts to get serious and you enter the treacherous/dastardly and dangerous waters south of the border - if you can, try not to make landfall in NSW - your boat will become infested with cockroaches
Let us now when you hit Moreton Bay - Manly Marina, which is probably the biggest marina on the east coast has some great eateries and pubs within walking distance.
Enjoy the new boat and delivery trip
