Wilson Reef Survey
Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 30
Wilson Reef lies about 30km north of Cape Melville on the Cape York Peninsula. While our focus is on what is under the water the area has some unnamed sand cays which are used as nesting sites by seabirds including the Brown Boobies and Sooty Terns.
The reef is named after Peter Wilson, a New Zealander whose ship crashed on the reef in 1927. It would be great to be able to name a reef, but we don't want to do it at the expense of the hull of our boat!
