I’ve been travelling past this little island of no more than one to two acres for the couple of weeks I have been in the Torres Strait. There are many hundreds of them, some quite isolated. The wave patterns caught my eye then I noticed the white spot near the shore on this side of the small beach among some low scrub and trees. A closer look showed it to be a small beach shack someone must have taken there in pieces, most likely by dinghy from Thursday Island quite a few miles to the west. Talk about isolated beach shack! It is the only sign of man on the island. There weren’t even any footprints that I could see.
