Sensational Adelaide

Heading towards Schouten Passage by James Atwell

Fantastic Freycinet

The first indication that we were in for a special day in Freycinet National Park was the views of the Hazards range we had heading towards Coles Bay, the departure point for our return 4.5 hour cruise to the stunning Wineglass Bay. The whole group had been looking forward to this day and we were rewarded with glorious weather and not a cloud in the sky, making the day even more memorable.
