    Where is that? Cotton Tree Caravan Park? Can't think of any other place in maroochy where you can get on the beach like that. If it's somewhere else - where is it?

    Great photos. I was lucky enough to grow up in the home of the black swan. Is Maroochy High still there? I have fond memories of my five years of servitude in the place. Must be Cotton Tree - I cannot imagine anywhere else getting that close to the beach.

    Is Pincushion Island still there ??? And which bank of the rivermouth is it on ???

    Cotton Tree is correct. Great spot.

    Like you Brian I spent much of my youth around Maroochy, the old man had an onsite van at Cotton Tree so we were there almost every week end. The mouth of the river is now on the southern side of Pincushion, the difference from 30 years ago is amazing..

    Thanks to Tin Bits for giving up the site for me.. Too breezy for him apparently...:lol:
