A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Tuesday 9 March 2010

I do recall describing Pumicestone Passage as shallow with lots of shifting sandbanks, and this probably proves the point. I may have failed to mention that Bribie Island is also narrow, and there are some fears that the ocean is about to break through its northern tip and restore the course of the passage to one that it's had many centuries earlier.
The main shipping channel to Brisbane does run quite close to shore on the ocean side, which is I suppose one of the reasons that the navigation beacons can be seen from ships at sea.
