Went over to the Montes couple weekends ago, we had 2 boates, launched from Fortescue. Weather turned it on, on the way home as usual haha. I havnt been since 2000 still the place is amazing.

 Looks absolutely amazing and I am very envious as I would love to spend some time there.... One day !!

It always amazes me that back in the day the military would use places like this for nuclear testing. It's appalling they found these isolated places of paradise all over the world and detonated massive nuclear explosions's a bloody shame !!

At least it looks like it's recovered nicely   



My fishing spots are so secret........... even the fish don't know where they are !!

Nothing like a bit of radio active contamination

Arrrh, there is nothing like a bit of radio active contamination to increase the size of the muddy gene pool and their DNA.

I don't know how true the story is, I was told the only things left alive on the Islands after the first test was cockroaches and crabs.

Thanks for the great pics it's a bloody marvellous place that's for sure.

Hate to ....

Sun, 2016-03-20 11:23

Hate to have a boat like that, I'ds scratch it, get red stains on it and ink it...not suitable for my fishing or island hopping...

On another note youre a tease...stop playing and go back to work and earn a dollar!

 To anyone taking the trip , heads up watch the newish set of traffic lights at the second mine road in. Dump trucks running pretty well much 24/7 Across The main road
