Hope Island & Cooktown, then Lizard Island.

Spent a couple of days at Hope Island, then off to Cooktown, followed by Lizard Island. This is a picture of the anchorage, Watson's Bay, Lizard Island. Pretty spectacular.

The Low Isles

Spent a day and night at the Low Isles, a very nice spot, the lighthouse is automated, so no light keeper but a caretaker in residence. Also some uni students on site doing reef research.
