Kingfisher Resort, Great Woody Island, Urangan Boat Harbour (Hervey Bay)

Early next morning we left for Kingfisher Resort further north but still on the west coast of Fraser Island and spent the day playing on the beach and chasing crabs, swimming in the clear blue water, as still as a mill pond, and chasing Daddy! Oscar spent hours sculpturing small rocks into ‘artefacts’ (like the aboriginals mum’). His plan is to sell them …not too sure about the chances of that happening.

As the wind came up we headed for the protected side of Woody Island – a quiet night with just turtles and dolphins for company. Next morning we sailed in to Urangan Marina/ Hervey Bay, ahead of a big wind. We were happily tied up by the time the wind hit us – sounded like something from Scott of the Antarctic blowing through the rigging, but clearly wasn’t given that we were still walking around in shorts and T-shirts!

The boys enjoyed the Wet Side Water park (I recommend that one), Gerhard worked and we restocked and refuelled the boat.
