Inskip Boats

I enjoy watching the variety of boats that can always be seen on the water around Inskip Point.  I took these photos in between photographing the Terns yesterday. 
The Barge which takes vehicles over to Fraser Island comes into Inskip Point and lowers its ramp for vehicles to drive on.  It has not quite reached the beach in this photo.

There are always small fishing boats moving around somewhere.  This one was heading out the channel toward the open sea. 

This boat was under sail and heading north up the Great Sandy Strait.

This one appeared to be a large and luxurious house-boat which had just left its overnight anchorage.

This one was still at anchor. Was it staying another day or just slow to wake up?

Extra:  There has been another wash-out on the Point.  This one was west of the previous one that occurred a couple of years ago.  It was so large it almost took out the road onto the Point.  The large trees were either washed right out or were about to come down and it was definitely safer to cut them right down.  The sea is very powerful and constantly re-shaping the shoreline.

For more photos from around our World visit Our World Tuesday. 


  1. Great boating shots!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River , Canada.

  2. It's good you've taken photos so that you can show what the area looks like before any more wash outs happen. The weather there looks cool and refreshing.

  3. Great idea for a blog post and great water pics!

  4. Wonderful boats and photos. I would like to have one of the houseboats. Thanks for sharing your world, have a great week ahead.

  5. Must have been a joy to breath the air.

    Please have a good Tuesday.

  6. I do love your water and boat shots!! It looks like a great place to be! Hope you have a good week!

  7. I'd love to spend a day on the water. It's too hot here. Imagine working everyday on those boats.

    And regarding washouts.....a bit scary. I'd hate to be walking along the shore when one of those came around.....I have a bit of fear of water:)

  8. Great boat shots!!!I love that last shot!Have a great day!


  9. Hi there - yes it was rather wet in Queensland last week - not the best one to choose to go for a holiday - but we still had a great time. I've just about managed to get my pictures organised!

    Cheers - Stewart M

  10. Great pictures you show. Wishing you a good day :)

  11. A great series and shows the power of the sea and nature. (I was glad you said about that top photo that it was still on the way toward shore -- I thought at first 'that would be a pretty good jump' ;>). I could live on a houseboat!

  12. Nice to see the variety of sea craft which visit your area.

    Water is indeed a mighty powerful force, especially in stormy conditions. It is a constant, and usually losing, battle to stop erosion from the sea along our coastlines.

  13. I thought I’d let you know that I stepped into the void caused by Springmans decision to close down World Bird Wednesday by setting up Wild Bird Wednesday (!) on my photoblog at Paying Ready Attention – Photo Gallery.

    Feel free to visit and link.
