but was later changed bythe captain (we're thinking maybe Captain Cook thought the name sounded so idle and dead).Turn south on the magnificent Rainbow Beach and find the Double Island Point. With beautifuland great stretches of unspoilt sandy beaches and fishing spots, the island is among the bestwater spots in the region perfect for countless water activities. The point attracts many marinecreatures, particularly dolphins and whales, which are a common sight to these shores on themonths of July to November. If you enjoy diving and perhaps the easy-breezy snorkeling, thenWolfRock will definitely deliver. A breathtaking formation of four volcanic pinnacles and is simplyregarded (and rated) as one of country's top 10 dive spots, Wolfrock is nestled a short distancefrom the island.While the southern point caters to diving and swimming aficionados, find that the north shore is asurfer's paradise. Consider a good swell, a right-hander breaks over sand, and as much as 300meters in perfect conditions. Pretty amazing, isn't it? On the other hand, you may find the sitelacking the usual comfy features like accommodation, let alone a guesthouse or a motel. But worryno more because the many hectares of national park and amazing beaches are perfect for setting-up camping tents to host other activities like sightseeing and the ever-enjoyable fishing.To get to the island you must travel one and a half hours from Brisbane. There is a Shell DrivewayService Station situated in the corner of Poinciana Ave and Moorindil St. in case you need to refuel.Moorindil Street will then take you to the Noosa River Vehicular Ferry, which will take you to ashort trip along the spectacular waters and sight of the Noosa River.The ferry operates from 0600 to 2200 hr, Mondays through Fridays (on weekends they service from 0600 to 2359 hr).If you're coming from the Rainbow Beach, you will need to journey Freshwater Track and TeewahBeach.Double Island Point is famous for its all important functioning lighthouse. Back when it was built in1884, it has gone through several fuel modifications; burned oil first, vaporized kerosene in 1923,then converted to electric power, and in 1992 it got a taste of the solar power.
