Gove Boat Club

Blue Douglas_Yatch Club 15

The Gove Boat Club is the sailor’s gateway to the Northern Territory. Located in Melville Bay – 12 kilometres from the town of Nhulunbuy, at the top of the Gulf of Carpentaria – the club caters to local and visiting yachts as well as local boating enthusiasts. Facilities at the Gove Boat Club include a dining venue and bar, not to mention one of the best sunset views in the region!

Visiting sailors are always made welcome at the Gove Boat Club and many extend their stay to take in the surrounding region of East Arnhem Land.

If you are keen to try your hand at boating, but don’t know a jib from the tiller, you are invited to join a crew for a day of fun.
