      Crab Claw Island Resort

      July 31, 2023 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

      Day trip out to Crab Claw Island Resort for lunch which was a fun 16km of dirt road... but Jenny Golf did us proud (despite the air con giving up on us in 35+ degrees!!!).

      Well worth the trip to experience the resort vibes. It reminded me of being on a beach in Thailand (minus the crocs!!) and lunch was amazing.

      Then our friends (Travis, Nessa, Dana and Bailey) from Bark Hut Inn arrived for a day trip too so we got to spend the afternoon together which was fun!

      Crab Claw Island

      August 16, 2023 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

      We got a tip about Crab Claw Island, so we decided to drop in and check it out. Brett and I both thought it was an island! And you needed to come by helicopter or boat, but it’s not.

      We pulled up and got good vibes, right on the beach and a beautiful restaurant, what more could you want! Apparently midges 😬.

      The first night we had a glorious sunset on the beach, eating the mud crab we had caught that morning and some cheese and dip. Then we had a movie night in the tent, one of our fav things to do.

      Brett and the boys got out for an early fish the second morning. It was a glass off. An amazing morning to be on the water.

      They came back from their fish and could not stop raving about what a good time they had and how many fish they caught. Every flick they got a snapper, queen fish, Trevally, Mackerel or long tom.

      We cooked up some of the snapper, they were delicious.

      Unfortunately, I got sick! A nasty head cold, but this did not stop me from dining out for dinner and lunch at the beautiful water front restaurant.

      The only downside to this amazing place was the midges. We all got smashed. Luckily we had some amazing neighbors who gave us a ton of antihistamines to get us through. Poor Lachie coped it the most.

      Crab Claw Island

      August 16, 2023 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

      After catching some crab, we decided to go to Crab Claw to relax by the pool.

      We decided to put the boat in because lots of people said it was really good fishing, and they weren’t wrong. We woke up bright and early to put the boat in and when we got out there we went to our first mark, but we didn’t get any fish. We moved to another mark started getting heaps of fish, so we drop the anchor. By the time we were done, we would’ve caught at least 20 fish between us, but only one was legal.

      On the first, and last day, we were at Crab Claw we went out to the restaurant. When you sat down, you could see the peacocks and joey’s eating food scraps over the edge of the balcony.

      The only bad thing there was the midges.
