Reel Women Jetty, gateway to one of the most beautiful spots in North Queensland

The Reel Women's story poem reflects the traditional role of the jetty as a meeting place for fishing and passing time with friends, especially for the island's women. The story celebrates the long friendship of three women, who became a symbol of island life.

Elsie Robertson, Linda Thimble (Lindy Lou), and Veronica James (BJ-Bonnie)

 

  • REEL WOMEN

    With their fishing gear and bucket they would walk

    And on the jetty they will talk

    Laughter and jokes they will share

    The lines are set and their minds are at rest

    To catch a few is on their list

    Speaking to others and giving advice

    Sharing their skills and thrills, and telling the tale

    Of the big one that got away

    To all real Women, you're the best

    Forget you not, From the rest.
