 The Wild Creatures of Diamond Islet

picture 37

Jack and Jude take you on a tour of this very remote Coral Sea Islet during sea bird breeding season. Thousands of majestic Frigate-birds, the males with red inflated throat sacks, look after their featherless fledglings, as well as rare Red Footed Boobies, Crested Terns and so many others in vast numbers. Jude explains their different traits in this lay person’s tour of a far flung breeding colony.

Sailing Fast Outside the Great Barrier Reef

Our grandchildren wanted to see stormy sailing as they are so used to seeing Banyandah sitting placid like a sleeping giant. So we put together this video of our 660 nautical mile passage up the Coral Sea, driven by gale force winds. We even hauled in a giant fish at the end!

Fast Sail Coral Sea

We used our very long pole to get the GoPro camera away from the boat for a better perspective. Haven’t had the courage yet to fly the camera from the kite while at sea….
