Ahh ... the serenity

Anchored in Gayundah Creek - what a backdrop!
There are some elusive barramundi in the Gayundah Creek.
Every day at low tide (and they're very low at the moment) we go fishing along the run-outs along the creek and every day we see barramundi but have been unable to attract one to a lure.

The side creeks can be a bit creepy - especially in an inflatable dinghy and even more especially when a crocodile slides into the creek just ahead of you!
Gayundah Creek is a beautiful sheltered anchorage below some of the huge peaks of Hinchinbrook Island. With the wind blowing at 25 to 30 knots out at sea, it's a great place to be. There's just enough breeze coming through to keep the mozzies and midges at bay.
Today we're heading up to Cardwell and will tie up for a couple of nights at the slipway bays within the old marina precinct.
