Sail ahoy on sunny Sunday

It was a great day out on the water for our NRL Cowboys House girls, enjoying a Sunday outing with a splash!

A group of 18 Girls Campus students and four House staff caught the SeaLink ferry over to Magnetic Island for a fantastic day of learning, fun, fishing and chilling.

While the wind put a stop to our planned day of sailing, one of the highlights was a tour of the Pilgrim 58ft yacht by our host Paul, who told us all about what life at sea was like.

Other activities included:

  • Dingy tour and feeding the fish in Magnetic Island marina
  • Walk to Nelly Bay with koala-spotting along the way
  • Morning tea under the trees
  • Fishing at the Nelly Bay boat ramp with Fish’n N Fuel’n – we caught one snapper that we released and the girls went oyster hunting
  • Swimming off the beach & in the bay
  • Burgers at Scallywags Café – impromptu karaoke to entertain the whole café!
  • Surprise tour in a stretch jeep with Magnetic Jeep Tours to Alma Bay
  • Swim and lazing at the beach

Thank you to these local organisations for their support!
