Location: Mackay, Australia

Today was a relaxing day spent finishing up the last of our Oceanography scientific research papers and others spending time onshore. Leah assembled a team to go provisioning for food for the final days of the trip, while others enjoyed laying out on the local beach, and a few went to see Australia’s beauty on a long nature walk. After dinner, the crew had a night out on the town before heading off on a 75-nautical-mile passage to the Whitsundays.
