Lucinda

Jul 18 to 24  Lucinda lies directly opposite the southern tip of World Heritage-listed Hinchinbrook Island. The eye-popping pride of Lucinda is a six kilometre jetty stretching far out into the Coral Sea. The jetty is the world’s largest bulk sugar loading facility and is so long it actually curves with the earth.

When conditions are right, you can sometimes see the dugongs and sea turtles at play. There is also a smaller jetty with ample opportunity to catch Mangrove Jack, Coral Troat, big juicy mud crabs and the fighting Barramundi which are all in plentiful supply. 

All the above fish species are theoretically available but we had to satisfy ourselves with a few bream and whiting which were still very tasty treats.

We have a game of golf at the local 9 hole course and meet one of the locals – a beautiful yellow-bellied black tree snake !
