Whitsundays

Before hitting the Whitsundays we found a beachside camp named Funny Dunny (no toilet humor here). You could still see reminders of Cyclone Yasi at Wunjuna, the nearby fishing village alongside the inlet.

Airlie Beach has been one of the few places we have booked ahead - to see Xavier Rudd with backstage passes!...

... Well, almost. Magnums Hotel has its stage surrounded, so we found a very unique vantage point. Heres a taste of the sort of music we've come to love on our trip. 

A day trip north of Airlie turned out to be one of our most memorable. We found Hideaway Bay, recommended for its secluded and protected beaches.

On arrival however, it was obvious that a party was brewing onshore...

...luckily we had planned for a picnic so were able to load the kayaks and escape to the nearest island...

... Perfect spot for a proposal!

Back shoreside the crowd had grown and a yacht club party was in full swing.  It didn't take long to find out their club was named after Shag Island, unbeknownst to us, the place place of our engagement! They took great delight in this and we instantly became part of the crew, now known as Shaggers!

We thanked all the shaggers for their well wishes and headed back to Airlie for dinner, in time to see the sunset, and make a few calls... A beautiful day.
