Expedition Log
Nathan Clark | Day 8
Red Cone Creek and Montgomery Reef

A very early start today as we set of at 0700 to
enjoy the sunrise colour palette at Raft Point.
The light was incredible, and many photos were
taken. After breakfast, we were back out in the
Xplorer for a wildlife cruise through Red Cone
Creek on a fl owing tide. Bird watchers thrilled at the
rainbow honeyeaters and we saw mudbanks full of
bright red fi ddler crabs and a rare giant mudskipper.
We then steamed to meet the tides at Montgomery
Reef. Aboard the Xplorer and zodiacs, we sat
amazed as the reef emerged from the ocean.
