Deal island, Kent Group, Bass Straight

The Kent Group make a most interesting stop over. The main island, Deal Island, is the sight of the old village that housed the lighthouse keepers. Nowadays with the light automatic one of the houses is a museum and another is the home of the resident warden. This is a volunteers job which changes every three months. The runway is decommissioned so there are few visitors. East cove is the best anchorage with good holding in sand. West cove is available if there is a strong westerly forecast. Entrance through Murray Pass is easy.
The wildlife, many birds and marsupials is very tame. Good walks.
