Next it was onto Emu Bay, which as Yeppoon it also has a real tropical, friendly feel. One attraction I had read about in Emu Park was the "Singing Ship Monument". I had no idea what it was but wanted to check it out. The Singing Ship commemorates Captain Cook's Bicentenery in 1970 and marks his discovery of the bay in May 1770. The memorial represents the billowing sail, mast and rigging of his ship Endeavour. Concealed organ pipes use the sea breeze to create eerie music. As it was quite a windy day we were treated to some amazing singing.
This morning we headed out of town to Mt Hay to do some more fossicking, this time for "Thunder Eggs". I hear you ask "What is a Thunder Egg?"
