a camping trip of ridiculous proportions

Cooloola Beach, Great Sandy National Park

3 Comments

From Brisbane we traveled north through Sunshine Coast region to Great Sandy National Park, which includes Cooloola beach and Fraser Island. First was Cooloola beach. We camped a couple of nights, mainly just relaxing and walking up and down the beach. The beach is brilliant for walking on – when the tide recedes it’s wide, smooth, flat and packed hard. Also makes it good for driving on. I did some fishing – this is where my kinship with the swallowtail dart first developed. Over the next week or so I would catch nothing but small, crappy darts. I also fossicked for cockles to use as bait. In Eastern Australia they’re called pippis and grow much larger than the ones I’m used to.

  1. It looks really fun…I’ve never been here…

  2. Pippis remind me of a journey we once travelled where its abundance meant that our fellow compatriots yearned for a delicious spaghetti marinara.

    The resulting marinara was only slightly better than eating a bowl of blue metal aggregate.
