Photographing Cooloola: Double Island Point

Double Island Point – Julie Hartwig

By Julie Hartwig, Tin Can Bay Camera Club

This issue we look at photographing Double Island Point. This rocky headland stands over 90m above the surrounding Coral Sea (Pacific Ocean) and delivers stunning views of Wide Bay to the north and Teewah Beach to the south.

Vehicular access is restricted, but local operator Surf & Sand Safaris provide access through guided tours which include a beach drive to Double Island Point, Lighthouse visit, drive south along Teewah Beach to the Freshwater Track, then a forest drive along the Freshwater through the national park back to Rainbow Beach. These tours are great options for photographers.

If you’re keen on foot power, you can walk up to the Lighthouse. Access is by road from the Teewah Beach side. Care is required when exploring the headland. There is no access to the lighthouse.

Happy snapping! More tips next month.
