Weary Bay Sunrise

Caught the end of the sunrise this morning at Weary Bay, Bloomfield, Queensland.

Weary Bay is 67 kms from Cooktown….drive the road to Cairns and turn at Lions Den turnoff and continue down 32 kms to Bloomfield. It’s a beautiful beach and you can walk safely along the shore at Low tide. Yesterday there was a Beach surfer flying his kite…and there was beautiful golden sand stretching both directions.

Captain James Cook (Lieutenant at the time) and his men gave Weary Bay its name in 1770 after running aground on Endeavour reef which is North East of Weary Bay. His men rowed ashore to establish if the Bloomfield River was a suitable site to carry out repairs.

Weary Bay Beach is a bush beach, without any bitumen car parks and concrete pathways. It’s a place where you can look from one end to the other and on most days, not see another soul. Sunrise and sunset are perfect times for panoramic photos, as the rainforest hills in the backdrop are lit by the colorful rays from the rising or setting sun. When you look out to sea and the coast you are looking into history, as the view has changed little in the time of European settlement and even beyond into the dreaming of the local Indigenous peoples. The offshore reefs are protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and fishing is subject to marine park and fisheries restrictions. They are home to a diverse array of fish species, as well as marine turtles, rays, reef sharks and more.
