A Dugong Sanctuary…

Clairview is a nice place to spend the night and break a journey up the Bruce Highway. A cabin by the sea, a meal on the deck of the tavern, a park for the kids to play in, a paddle in the calm waters… and, according to this article, its a dugong sanctuary! Who knew?

XPLORE - Out & About

The waters surrounding Clairview on the sunny Capricorn Coast was declared a Dugong Sanctuary in 1997. Even the casual observer can spot these magnificent mammals from the shoreline as they feed on the sea grasses.

Ps: We photographed this magnificent Dugong in another location (we weren’t so lucky to get up this close at Clairview!)


About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the red earth touching a blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a warm turquoise blue sea…

A few years ago we graduated from work and re-entered the classroom of life where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Cheers, Baz & Janet

  1. I didn’t know about Clairview and it looks like a great place to visit. Thanks for sharing this post.

    I saw the other day in the QWC newsletter about your blog being added to the National Library Archives. Congratulations on a well-deserved accolade.

    1. Thank you! I’m still a bit excited about that event! Clairview is a tiny beach place between Marlborough and Sarina, a fishing spot just off the highway. We’ve stopped there for a picnic lunch, but I’m told it’s a nice overnight spot too.
