Great Sandy Strait offers a calm-water alternative to the ocean passage outside Frazer Island. The great Sandy Strait runs nearly 40 miles from its southern entrance at Wide Bay to its northern extremes of Hervey Bay. Frazer Island is the largest sand island in the world.
We approached Frazer Island (Great Sandy Strait) entrance at high tide. We received information that the sand bar shifted 100 meters to the north therefore we need to allow for this in our approach. From a far distance you can see the braking waves. The approach looks worse than it actually is. We also see the ferry going across from the mainland and we time our entrance well that we will pass her whilst she arrives on the other side. As we are through a massive waterway opens up called Wide Bay and we decide to anchor just past Tin Can Inlet in around 3 meters for a relaxing lunch.
We anchored for the night at Elbow Point being all by ourselves in this magic tranquil place.
