Sailing in Crocodile Country – Hinchinbrook Island - Ep 24


Location: Hinchinbrook Island
Latitude: -18.34000000
Longitude: 146.23000000

In this episode we spend a week deep in crocodile country as we sheltered from a strong weather system whipping up big winds and high seas right along the coast. We were very well protected in the waters of the Hinchinbrook Channel running between the World Heritage listed Hinchinbrook Island and the mangroves of the mainland. Surrounded by its pristine wilderness, we may have been safe from the weather but protecting ourselves from the mosquitos, midges and other winged aggressors was another thing. We were also ever mindful of the very real threat posed by the large numbers of huge crocodiles surrounding us. We visited rock fish traps constructed hundreds of years ago by the area’s indigenous people and marvelled at how they thrived in such a hostile environment.
