I was amazed by Dwayne as he shared some of his family’s stories and culture with us, he spoke of the family’s traditions (sitting under the Macassan Tree talking and cooking traditional food), and back in the day when his ancestors canoed all around the Marine Park living and hunting.

I was also amazed at the fishing. The reef is close to the camp and I didn’t get sea sick as I could clearly see land. I caught large Barra 80cm + coming off the reef OMG and large Queenfish swimming past me that day.
