Over 65 Mackayites gathered for our Beautiful Places Walk off the coast of Shoal Point on Sunday March 30.
The day started with a picnic and then local Morrie Pearson led the group over the sands and towards Little Green Island at low tide. We saw a wonderful array of wildlife including a variety of soft and hard corals (including one affectionately named 'blobby'), crabs, shells and birds.
The event was covered by Channel 7 and the Daily Mercury. The pictures below say it all! For more pictures go to the Mackay Conservation Group facebook page.

The weather looks good so we will be going ahead.

The picnic will start at 12pm, but the walk not until 3pm.
