Day 1 - Peeling back the sands of time

Day 1 - Peeling back the sands of time
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

ANTARCTIC frontal systems bring rain and snow to the southern coasts of the Australian continent. Some of these frontal systems make it all the way here to the subtropics, but have to pass vast areas of inland desert to get here. These deserts suck out all the moisture bringing perfectly clear skies and cool winds.

The top end of the Great Sandy National Park makes for a spectacular start to this journey. They say the journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. The start of this 1041 kilometre hike starts at the pristine Rainbow Beach passing a spectacular formation of sand cliffs unlocking clues to the natural history of the massive Cooloola Sandmass. Double Island Point marks the end of the beach and the end of my first day. From there I am rewarded with a senationally clear night for star gazing.
