Not what the guide books say Oct 01, 2012
Erm….not much going on here to be honest. I wanted to visit the quarantine station but when we got there all of the buildings had been turned into offices except for one. This building is what is left of the history.

Walking along the dirt track you can view the graves of the 13 Vietnamese meningitis victims who died here in 1920. Taking the other path you will climb a moderate dirt track arriving at Shelly Beach. Good for collecting shells but lots of seaweed so no good for swimming.

Walking along the beach for about ???kms to Rowes Bay you will arrive at a caravan park where you can catch the bus back to Townsville.

Not worth the $7 return bus.
