The Caravel Notorious

Urangan, Hervey Bay, Fraser Coast Area

Notorious is a full size, wooden, sailing, re-creation of a Portuguese or Spanish caravel from the Age of Discovery, researched, designed, and built single-handedly, from salvaged Monterey cypress logs, by Graeme Wylie, at his home in Bushfield, S/W Victoria, Australia.

Launched in February 2011 at nearby Port Fairy, Notorious has sailed over 16,000 nautical miles in the Southern Ocean, Bass Strait, the Tasman and Coral Seas.

Notorious is a Museum Ship and is open for public inspection, onboard and below deck, when berthed at a port of call. Notorious is the only sailing caravel in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia's earliest ship re-construction, and Australia's only lateen-rigged ship.

Hope Island

Hope Island, Gold Coast Area
You would expect anticipation to be fairly high when travelling to a place called Hope Island and this destination doesn't disappoint.

Runaway Bay

Runaway Bay, Gold Coast Area
Escape enthusiasts will adore Runaway Bay and not just for the name. Bracketed by South Stradbroke Island to the east and a colourful canal system to the west, it's simple to see why this northern Gold Coast suburb was originally better known as Angler's Paradise.
