Chili Beach

We saw a few folks in Iron Range Park but overall things were fairly quiet.  I read that Chili Beach is where most folks want to camp so we headed out there and spent the evening.  Not the place to go for a casual swim though!  We saw our first Fawn Breasted Bowerbirds and hordes of Metallic Starlings from New Guinea going to roost on these remote rock islands.

We also spotted some fig parrots which got me real excited but they were too far off for any kind of decent filming.
