OK, so the marina is a bit daggy and the town is a little run-down, but the sunrises are spectacular. We enjoy going inland wherever we can. We travelled up the Burnett river only an hour after low tide and at no time saw less than a meter under our (1.2m) keel.
The marina population here consists mainly of live-aboards who are friendly and very helpful. And of course the shops are within easy walking distance. On our way back North, we hope to visit Maryborough by going up the Mary river.
