Honey Moon Bay

where babies love happens

This is where everyone went in the 90s and early 2000's for their honeymoons.. ya know how i know that? 'cause now everyone that visits this place has kids around the same age ;)

A quick grab shot as we drove out of the place from our few nights camping there (chaos, tickles and da boss). This image is 4 landscape orientation shots stitched together, it was taken pretty well in the middle of the day hence the light is somewhat flat, however with the use of the Polariser the sky and the greens get a great kick to give it a little more to combat that overhead sun and the life of a mediocre image :).

This place is perfect for families with kids, the swimming , snorkeling etc is excellent, the sheltered bay means the water is particular calm, even more so than the water from the bay a few hundred metres out, which is pretty calm anyway. Perfect for a clever hungry shark too methinks ;)

Here you can see a typical day in the life of the holidays at Honeymoon bay, 30 odd degrees Celsius and the routine consists of a quick dip followed by a lazy lay on the beach, in the shade of the overhanging trees or in the sun, whichever you prefer, you can also sprawl out on the grassy knoll at one of the beach if your not a fan of the sand :) This is repeated through the day with intermittent breaks for food and beverages :)

I hope all you northern hemisphere inhabitants in the grip of the cold winter enjoy this one ;)

  1. it's a great spot, and top pic. Reminds me that we are long overdue for a spot of camping down there ourselves. Best I start whispering this into the other halfs ear

    as far as camping goes, its one of the best locations – the facilities are pretty minimal, ie dunnies provided but that's it, bring everything else, but Curracong and Culburra are only 10 and 25 minutes away. Be sure to check out point perpendicular and watch out for the shakey snakeys – we had a red belly just down from the tent :)

  3. thanks for the advice +Gerard Blacklock, we have camped here a couple of times before, it's just been more than a couple of years since we last did. It's a great spot for swimming, and snorkelling out along the front too.
    I forgot to mention….a toilet is a luxury item. 10 nights on Fraser, and the toilet was done by using a shovel!

    :) thanks your way too kind – to be honest my posts are more just ramblings – i do wish I had the knack of creative writing, i sure I will look back and cringe at the grammar etc – but that said, there is a reason why I become a engineer, that's to avoid writing stuff :) I draw good.

  5. I used to camp here with my family every Christmas when I was very young (not much older than Chaos) – very fond memories of the place – and the walk out to target beach for the surfing
