The next mooring we made for Island Head Creek and one of the most comfortable and beautiful places we have been in Queensland so far. With lots of mountains and lush mangroves it really was a great wilderness. Again being part of the Army's training area you can't go on land but we spent five days enjoying the fishing and very comfortable water. The weather was perfect each day and the fishing wasn't too bad except that the mud crabs seem to be hiding somewhere?
Leaving Island Head Creek we made for Hexham Island for a short overnight stop. The next day we made for South Percy Island. A very beautiful island with a great beach and rock pools. Unfortunately the Anchorage was very prone to surge with the 5 - 6m tides we were experiencing at the time. Moving to North East Percy Island the next day didn't improve much.
