Two hour flight to Horn Island, then a very expensive bus and ferry ride across to Thursday Island. This is like a real frontier town – very utilitarian. For a very small island (it takes about two hours to walk around the coast) it has a surprising number of vehicles. Lots of boats parked around town,
I don’t understand how the island supports itself – everthing has to be imported, and with the distances and transport involved must be very expensive.
Roast dinner at the motel – we travel all the way to the tropics for roast beef.
