Come along and join Kat and Caron for a lazy Saturday stroll around Coochiemudlo. We will jump on the ferry to begin our Coochiemudlo Island escape, then a delightful wander around the island on the incoming tide.
It is a short 4-8 kilometre walk, however is very interesting with a variety of habitats including long sandy beaches, Bribie Island Pines, Scribbly Gums, Brush Box, Melaleuca Wetlands, Mangroves, Casuarinas and Pandanus.
English Explorer Matthew Flinders was the first white person to land on the Island on 19th July 1799 in his ship the Norfolk. Flinders called the island 'Sixth Island'. The Aboriginal families had called it "Kuychi Mudlo" for generations. It was a place where they sourced the sacred red ochre stones used as body decoration and as red pigment for their shields and skin.
We will be stopping for a cuppa and a home-made treat along the way. Who knows maybe even a swim.
Don't forget there is a nice café on the island if so if you're not quite ready to go home feel free to stay on longer and enjoy a swim/ lunch etc..
