This is a pictorial journal of the holiday that the Trundle Family took during October 2002 - we went to the Queensland Whistsunday Islands, reknown for being a fabulous place to just potter around in, off the coast of Queensland and wedged in between the mainland and the Great Barrier Reef. We had intended this as a recon. trip to check out the charter boating opportunities, hence the extra focus on big boats later in the photos.
