Destination - Roslyn bay.


Sailing from Great Keppel Island toward Roslyn Bay which is seen here in the distance.

Closing in on the entrance to Roslyn Bay and marina.

Inside Roslyn Bay
Roslyn Bay is protected from the elements behind an enormous volcanic outcrop that is thought to  have been formed more than 50 million years ago. 
From the top of this outcrop, the Keppel Islands are clearly visible. 
Nearby Statue Bay and Double Head are popular fishing destinations for Black Jewfish, Cod, Tuna, and Mackerel.

 Roslyn Bay Harbour is quite busy as it is home to ferries departing for Great Keppel Island, along with Keppel Bay cruises, recreational fishing boats, 
 bare-boat charters, and Local fishing trawlers.

Keppel Bay Marina
North Queensland's largest marina is also located in Roslyn Bay having 400 berths and 
a waterside garden cafe. 
A variety of colourful gardens, shrubs, trees, and bird life make this marina a very attractive destination.
