Letting big wind blow by at Brampton Island - 2020 Ep 12 – Join us on this Great Barrier Reef Jewel

We sailed 79 miles to Brampton Island from Middle Percy Island to shelter from a strong blow coming from the South East. Watch our video on YouTube HERE
After sitting out days of wind and rain secure in the anchorage, we were rewarded with some perfect days to enjoy this tropical oasis. They were the sort of days that remind us why we live on a yacht as we explored the macabre abandoned resort, stretched our legs with a climb through island’s stunning vegetation to take in the breath-taking views from Brampton Peak and had beautiful golden sand beaches all to ourselves to enjoy warm, crystal clear waters. Brampton is beautiful.

The sun rising as we sailed from the Percy Islands to Brampton

Flat seas and no wind meant we motored all the way

We were able to complete the long passage and anchor safely just before sunset

The national park walks on the island are very good.

Butterflies, butterflies and more butterflies
