Staying with family in Brisbane, when we discovered the world's highest coastal sand dune was on Moreton Island we figured we should go for it 8) :D Delighted when Brian & Sharon were able to join us - and drop us off at the starting point for the climb - that made it a straightforward up & down. Very hot and of course, soft ground all the way even with the occasional steps built in.

Went to the beach after this with snorkels - swam out to Tangalooma ship wrecks and shredded feet and hands on the jaggy surface :roll: :lol: Lots of colourful fish out there. Amazing day :D
