Our Trip to Sandy Cape

A few weeks ago my family went to Sandy Cape Lighthouse at the top of K’gari. I really like going to Sandy Cape, it is beautiful up there – lovely white sand dunes with no human footprints, real wild dingos, beautiful sunsets from the hill on which the lighthouse stands, the opportunity to go turtling, and the beach there is great for swimming :) 582 more words
