Day 817 – 821 6/8 – 10/8 Hervey Bay/Rainbow Beach/Bribie Island

Just out of Childers is Snakes Downunder so of course we had to call in to have a look. As well as snakes they have Meerkats.

Lots of lizards.

And snakes in the show. She asked what you should do when you see a snake in the backyard. I said “hit it with a spade”. No sense of humour.

And even more slytherins.

They even had some boring animals.

Urangan Pier & a few of its inhabitants. The pier opened in 1917 to export sugar, coal & timber. The last ship docked in 1985 & since then it has been used for recreation.

Found a new mode of transport to the golf club.IMG_4394_edited-1

Rainbow Beach on a foggy morning. We had to get on the beach early due to the tides. By the time we came back it had mostly cleared.IMG_8948

Double Island Point Lighthouse was built in 1883. The Lightkeepers cottages were built in 1933.

The reason it is called Rainbow Beach.

Quote of the Day

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.”
