Another highlight was the boat trip in Keppel Bay, from Rosslyn Bay to Port Alma. Islands and beaches in the amazing Great Barrier Reef, the home of the snubfin dolphin, mangroves and the Fitroy River Delta. Peak Island, under the highest level of protection, to keep it as secure as possible for the flatback turtles.

I am so glad that the Keppel and Fitzroy Delta Association (KAFDA) is working so effectively to protect this beautiful place.

Ginny Gerlach from KAFDA gave us a lot of information about the planned coal loading facilities threatening the special environment of Keppel Bay and the Fitzroy Delta.
