Continuing our holiday in 2016. Thinking I'm only halfway through the places we visited in 2016, it won't be that long and we will cross the sea on the Spirit of Tasmania for another 3 and bit months away in our winter. Later in June 2017.
Emu Park in Queensland is on the East Coast and is home of the famous Singing Ship Monument, it's not far from Rockhampton.
Emu Park was first discovered by Captain James Cook in 1770. It overlooks the island of Keppel Bay, including the Great Keppel Island. Emu Park is a popular tourist spot, and has won several tourism awards, and features fishing, surfing, boating, and unspoiled beaches.
We also visited Yeppoon and several other beaches along the way - no photos as the day was rather windy and nothing of great value to add.
The monument does sing/hums due to the wind.
