Paradise -Hinchinbrook & Goold Island QLD, 22nd June 2019

Sailing past Lucinda Jetty, it's the longest service jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. At 5.76 kilometers long, the jetty is nothing short of an engineering masterpiece with its length following the curved contour of the earth. Sugar takes 22 minutes to travel along the conveyor from the on-shore storage to the ship loader.

Jurrasic like World Heritage listed Hinchinbrook Island is entirely uninhabited, only 40 adventurers are allowed on at any one time. We got to enjoy it's beauty when sailing past.

Staying overnight at Goold Island, we had a chance to explore the coastline, but we are starting to get weary of crocs.
