Moreton Island 1

Moreton Island SE Queensland. After being badly affected from an oil spill which covered almost all the eastern side of the island it is now showing signs of recovery. Some of the tidal creeks are still closed due to the clean up still in progress.

That's a beautiful place. Nice photos. The oil residue on the rocks is not good. Hope there are plans to deal with that too.
