This is Clump Point and the boat ramp during the 3.3 m high tide at 8:45 am on Sunday 22 January 2012. I was standing on the Clump Point Jetty when I took the photo. It is at Narragon Beach which is between Clump Point and Bingil Bay.
Clump Point is between Mission Beach and Bingil Bay in Far North Queensland, Australia. The closest town is Tully.
This is the first time I’ve seen Clump Point at such a high tide. It usually looks like a long hill meters above waterline with gently sloping sides covered with long grass. There has been a boatramp there for many years now, but when I was a child (in pre-boatramp days) we occasionally went out on the point for a bit of adventure and some of my cousins would roll down the grassy sides of the hill. I think it was a bit wet there today for that sort of thing.
I went there today especially to photograph the high tide and got it as Nth Mission Beach and the Clump Point jetty as well. I got to Bingil Bay after the tide started going out. I could tell by the high water mark that the water didn’t get up to the top of the sand at Bingle Bay as there was over a meter of dry sand at the top of the beach. I have loaded photos taken at North Mission Beach during this king tide.
