- Event Description
Woody Island often gets overlooked as just a quick stopover at the northern end en-route to Fraser Island. I’d like to explore Woody, the three islands in the vicinity, and the coast of Fraser down to Kingfisher Bay.
Friday – Meet at Urangan Boat Harbour and paddle to the northern tip of Woody Island, head down to campsite at Jeffries Beach. Maybe in the afternoon explore the coast of Woody Island and walk to the historic lighthouse.
Saturday – Paddle across to explore Little Woody Island, and the two or three creeks on Fraser Island opposite. Possible 24km round trip
Sunday – Explore Picnic and Duck Islands off the south of Woody on the incoming tide. Head across to Kingfisher Bay to one of the restaurants for lunch (bring money). Take the afternoon outgoing tide back to camp. Approx 10km each way.
Monday. Pack up and return to Urangan around lunchtime so we aren’t fighting the incoming tide too hard early. May be able to go a little earlier but can discuss that strategy with the group at the time.
Camping Permit required, to be arranged either as a group or individual – discuss closer to event.
