On the 4th to the 7th of August we were back on Moreton Island for the Nudgee College immersion week. The boys were keen to perform maintenance on the weeds targeted last year in the Comboyuro campground. We focused on removal of Prickly Pear cactus and cleaned rubbish along the dunes .

We also helped plant some native she-oaks along a section of Cape Moreton heavily degraded in the past by the now thankfully extinct feral goats. To get there we walked into a bay littered with marine debris but when we walked out it was pristine. Another area we cleaned of debris was Honeymoon Bay and Northpoint.

The boys were keen for a game of touch football which was closely followed by a refreshing swim at champagne rocks were we sighted dolphins surfing through the waves. We had a morning of trekking up Mt Tempest then exploring the islands beauty via the Telegraph track. Sand Tobogganing is always a much anticipated adrenaline activity that never fails to thrill. Flying down the natural and ever-changing dunes highlights both the good and bad techniques of the riders.
