A journey from Sydney by boat, the Woomera, to Gladstone where the narrator and her husband meet some local Aborigines and go hunting. They voyage up the Queensland coast through the Whit Sunday Passage, past Fraser Island, stopping at Bowen and landing at Townsville. Their destination is an island station where they stay for several weeks. Aborigines, bush hospitality, the scenery etc, are all described interestingly and often amusingly. (PB)
