Bundaberg Port Marina 24 45 46S 152 23 57E
Now we are about 200 Nm North Scarborough.
75% motor sailing and just 25 really sailing.
Mooloolaba - Rainbow Beach (a lot of sand and crazy 4x4 motoring on the beach) 52 Nm
Entering Wide Bay Bar and the "The Mad Mile" without any problem.
Tin Can Bay (no atmosphere at all) 25 Nm
Sheridan Flats Shoals. Very shallow at low tide. We cleaned the bottom when we for a while was pushing the yacht through the sand at 1,3 m.
Kingfisher Bay (nice beach but everything closed down because of Covid, sad) 38 Nm
Bundaberg Port Marina (we arrive in the dark around 21:00) 57 Nm
At anchor in very shallow water and the next day we got a berth in the marina. Yes!
We will stay here a week now. Today Friday there will be BBQ and we will meet a few fellow sailors😀🍾.
A sailors life. This is how it works in the galley.
Heading for Rainbow Beach (all these fancy names)
The whole beach is full of these small colourful little crabs

Dark & Stormy (a Bundaberg speciality) - The is the home of the Australien famous Bundaberg rum (nobody else knows about it)
Anyway you mix Bundaberg Ginger Beer and Bundaberg Rum and a bit of lemon plus ice of course. Here you go. Cheers!
It's really nice to be here ... and finally around the corner there will be new adventures to explore. The Great Barrier Reef.
