Day 44 - Cape to lakes

Day 44 - Cape to lakes
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

AS DESOLATE the sand islands are, they have many resources which have supported Aboriginal people for many thousands of years. During the last ice age when the sea level was 120 metres lower than it is today, and when Moreton Bay was a large floodplain, Aboriginal people lived on these sand hills for around from 18,000 to 6,000 years ago on various settlements in these pristine locations. With the rising of the sea level, the islands were largely abandoned with the resources becoming scarcer, but returned after a few thousand years to live comfortably with the abundance of marine life in the island's lagoons.

Today's trek starts from North Point. I head across to the isolated Honeymoon Bay to watch the sunrise before heading over the top of the volcano to the Cape Moreton Lighthouse. After exploring the area, I head down to the start of the ocean beach sweeping the length of Moreton Island, and start the long trek. I stop at Blue Lagoon, and explore the lagoon and the nearby Honeyeater Lake.
