Bluff Point

Today I went for a walk in a section of the Capricorn National Park called Bluff Point. As it's name suggests, it's a bluff, with some awesome views of the surrounding beaches and island.

It's about 15 minutes south of Yeppoon, towards Emu Park. The walk itself takes around 45 minutes to do the loop, and while some sections of the walk are somewhat steep, it's not too taxing on the old legs. There are several lookouts along the walk, one each for the northern and southern aspects, as well as one facing east towards Great Keppell Island, as well as a general one right on the top. I managed to get some great pictures from each of these, so make sure you check them out here.

Bluff Point also has a really nice picnic/BBQ area, which hopefully we'll take advantage of one day soon, and is also right next to Kemp Beach, which is one of the few surf beaches up here in Yeppoon. Don't get your hopes up though all you surfers out there, because the waves pale in comparison to ours in SA, and from what I've seen, you're bound to get more action trying your luck at Glenelg rather than up here!

It is still interesting to occassionally see what you are up to.
