The Molle Islands

 

These islands are coral-fringed, with steep grassy hills and covered in dense native bush. Our plan was to land on the small patch of sand on the northern tip of South Molle, the largest of the four islands and make our way to the top of Mount Jeffrey to take in the view of the surrounding islands. The down side was once we reached the summit the views were obscured by thick sea fog. We ended up hiking across to the opposite side of the island and scrambled our way to the balancing boulder.
