Once we'd built our castle we decided to go for a swim; Whitehaven is on Whitsunday Island which is a National Park, there are basic toilet facilities and so we headed there to change.. The toilets/deck are raised and I stupidly dropped my lip balm over the edge - right next to a LARGE lizard (goanna?) and when Hubby was bravely retrieving it he came across a Green Tree snake and also (more scarily) a brown snake.. So we kept to the path after that!
frisbee and beach cricket before we boarded the boat for lunch on our way to Hook Island.
