6 TENPS sailing trip to Coburg Peninsula During October school break four club members sailed to Coburg Peninsula. After 24 hours they anchored in Alcaro Bay. A trip ashore revealed a wide variety of coastal plants as can be seen in accompanying photos. A highlight of this anchorage was the walk to Cape Don lighthouse constructed in 1917. The second anchorage just a few miles east was Popham Bay. This bay is quite long and deep and well protected. Forest with infrequent fire; by David Liddle At the bottom of the bay is a creek which is now protected as a marine reserve. This has resulted in an abundance of marine wildlife which accompanied us as we paddled over coral bommies upstream.
