Seisia

9/08/2005

Arrived at Seisia – what a superb location, campsite complete with beach shelter, right on the beachfront overlooking the Torres Strait islands, and with endless sandy beaches in both directions as far as we can see.

Had to get up early (5.20am) to catch the 6.30 ferry, which was a great idea as there were only about 6 passengers on it, and the trip was very smooth and fast on dead flat water – it usually gets quite windy later in the day; and the afternoon ferry was standing room only, absolutely packed full.


An added bonus was the chance to watch a spectacular sunrise over the islands.

Seisia itself doesn’t have much, just the campground, a service station/mechanic and supermarket. It is very quiet, although people in general don’t stay long at the campground as they usually leave their boats and caravans further south and find they get bored up here once they’ve seen the sights.

Janene and Phil brought everything with them, and have been here 5 weeks already, they are even thinking of staying on after we leave, they like it so much.
