We leave sunny Hinchinbrook for a week of rainy and windy conditions during which we still manage to explore North Island, Dunk Island, Mourilyan Harbour and Russell Island.
What a majestic, spectacular island Hinchinbrook is, especially seen from Zoe Bay. It is very reminiscent of the Polynesian islands, with steep jagged peaks straight down to the ocean.
No visit to Orpheus Island is complete without a snorkel at the now abandoned giant clam nursery located at Pioneer Bay. This post shows you why.

Rattlesnake is a disappointment, but Orpheus is a beautiful island where we snorkel and hook up with Frenchies!
Despite the crowds we had three lovely days at Magnetic Island, exploring its beautiful bays, stretching our legs and catching up with friends.
Our dawdle to new territory for us, from the Whitsundays to Magnetic Island, is the start of new adventures.
