Photographer's Note

Eli Creek is the largest freshwater stream on the east coast of the island. It is an area of exceptional and pristine beauty. There are a number of wooden walkways and a short, circular route runs up one side of the creek and down the other. It is possible to swim in the lower reaches of the creek. (about 1.5 metres deep). On a hot day it is very cool and refreshing. Taken in midwinter, but it's still warm enough to swim. (25c). Nearest towns are Rainbow Beach, & Hervey Bay. Both are over 50 km away.

Eli Creek is not far from the Maheno shipwreck, which "centurion" posted recently. The ocean surf beach is in the distance. Almost the entire island is made of sand, & the water is so clear, you can see the ripples in the sand on the bottom of the stream.
