This photo was taken at the peak of the king tide that happened at about 8:45 am on 22 January 2012. The water came to its usual place for a king tide – up to the roots of the palm trees that line the beach.
North Mission Beach is near Tully in Far North Queensland, Australia.
Clump Point is just north of North Mission Beach. I have loaded to RB a photo of Clump Point during this same king tide event.
