Brisbane -  Australia


Heading southwards, we sailed inside Fraser Island and through to Brisbane. While most international cruising boats make their way right up the river to pile moorings off the Botanical gardens, we happened to sail into Moreton Bay on a weekend, and when we spied a fleet of local boats ending a regatta and entering a creek mouth, we followed.. and fortuitously found ourselves in the extremely hospitable 'Queensland Cruising Yacht Club' A pile mooring was arranged for Fallado right at the entrance to Cabbage Tree Creek and we spent several enjoyable weeks there before continuing on further south. Aboard with us was an additional crew member, Helmut's younger daughter Birgit, who had flown in from Germany. She would stay with us as we stopped off in the Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Ballina, and Port Stephens, then fly out from Sydney
