About This Boat

See the fantastic Benaraby coast in Australia aboard the 21' Pontoon Boat! Benaraby is a town 20 kilometers south of Gladstone in Central Queensland, Australia. This small community is located on the Boyne River and is the access point to Lake Awoonga, which has a stockpile of Barramundi, Saratoga and Sea Mullet waiting to be caught!
