We awoke this morning to cloud and overcast conditions which made it easier to be leaving Hamilton Island.

This was our ferry to the mainland.

Dent Island is the 18 hole companionship golf course of Hamilton Island - a separate island not far across the sea.

Last glimpses of the Yatch Club and marina on Hamilton.

We stopped at Long Island on the way to Shute Harbour.

Shute Harbour - Airlie Beach.
