Lookout from Tongue point over whitehaven beach

After stocking up with food at Airlie we sailed out to Whitehaven, managing to do all the walks the island has to offer, we headed for the long white beach. We made use of the kayaks and headed up Hills inlet, the northern end of the beach, clear water and lots of stingrays to be seen.


Whitehaven is populated with tourists throughout the day, so we arrived early one morning and took the opportunity to run like nature intended on Whitehaven beach.

The weather began to deteriorate so we made for Nara Inlet on Hook Island. Here there was a 170m walk to a cave where the aboriginees use to live. There was also a interactive thing where you press a button and you hear pre recorded stories from the aboriginees. What ever money they use to earn , they had to take it to the police station where the white man took all their money and if the aboriginees wanted some of their money they had to apply for it and instead of getting 3 pounds they may only get 2 pounds, depending on who was manning the desk at the time. They also had to get permits to go into town, say they had one from 9 – 3pm . the police would come round to make sure they had left and then come round again soon after 3pm to make sure they had arrived back home. What a horrid life!!
