Club Whittley Queensland was founded on 21 August 1996 following a most enjoyable and enlightening Whittley Rally arranged by Northside Marine at Sanctuary Cove.
Buoyed with the success of the inaugural Whittley Rally, the Club Whittley Queensland Committee have arranged many day, weekend and extended outings at anchorages extending from Caloundra to the Marine Stadium, Southport and The Tweed, with extended trips to the Whitsundays and Hervey Bay.
Every second year a national Whittley Owners rally is orgainsed by one of the nation's Whittley clubs ( VIC in 2014, NSW 2016 and Qld will be 2018). These rallies are very popular and members have the opportunity to meet the Whittley Family, Neville and his son Alan, who generously spend time speaking with everyone.
Club Whittley Qld was incorporated in August 1998 and today has over 80 boats registered. We maintain close relationships with both Northside Marine & the Whittley Family.
