Winter is hitting, so we are heading towards the equator! We still have a stack of images to edit from our Lady Elliot Island trip, but in the meantime we are going share the last few weeks spent on our northern sojourn.
Tannum Sands is a few hours north of Bundaberg and its the first place we started to see the “Beware of Crocs” signs along the coastline. This place looked like it was made for them with inland estuaries spilling into the sea with muddy banks, but the locals thought you would be pretty lucky to come across one of them.
Next stop was 8 hours further north to the town of Bowen. We had definitely escaped the winter here!! While the east coast from Brisbane down to Victoria got smashed by a crazy rain event, we were in 29 degree sunshine. We didn’t see a single cloud in our 6 days here. Some of the bays around Bowen were divine.
Horseshoe Bay was the “bomb” swimming spot with super clear, warm water and some beautiful rock formations at either end of this scooped out paradise. The travelling oldies from down south and the European backpackers were all over it. Can’t blame them it was the Jewel of Bowen.
Stayed tuned to the website over the next few days/weeks where we will be rolling out some more gold from our Great Barrier reef adventures, also a Panorama of the Buderim falls complete with behind the scenes video clip and our single favourite Turtle image. Also there is less than 48 hours before we start our bi-yearly SALE… details will be dropping real soon!
