Camping weekend at Lake Cootharaba

Nine of us had a great weekend camping at Elanda Point and paddling Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Weather was very kind, light winds and sunny days. Friday we paddled across the Lake to Fig Tree Point where we encountered a friendly goanna, then paddled on up into the Noosa Everglades and back. Lots of bird life seen inc. black swans & pelicans in great abundance.

Saturday we went up Kin Kin creek as far as is able to go. Later most of us ventured out on the walks, the kangaroos seemed to be watching us as much as we were watching them.

Sunday we headed out early on almost ripple free water to Teewah Landing and walked to 2kms each way to the beach. as luck would have it we were there as the ice cream van came passed and some of us couldn’t resist. The ocean seemed gloriously blue after 3 days of brown lake.
