Jet Ski Social Ride Wednesday 25th April 2018 - Anzac Day Ride
« on: April 22, 2018, 05:03:43 PM »
Hi everyone,


It looks like the weather is going to be awesome for Anzac Day wh


We're planning to leave Paradise Point at around 8.30 and head to Peel Island for a picnic and a snorkel.


Lets make the most of the day we wouldn't have, if not for the awesome ANZACs to whom we owe an unpayable debt. Lets do what they gave up everything for and take the time to remember them with a game of 2 up at Peel  br


Hope to see you then!

I think 1 full tank will probably do it. We certainly don't carry extra fuel to Peel.


If you're in doubt throw 5-10 litres in but I don't think you'll need it!




The weather is still looking cracker for this. There may be a bit of rain over night but the day is panning out beautiffuly.


Make the most of it everyone because the next weekend is looking like a bit of a movie weekend at this stage!

Hi Mandy,

My wife and I would like to come and join you all on Anzac Day as it will be our first time meeting up with other club members,
But we live in Springwood.

What time do you guys expect to get to Peel island?
As I was thinking of leaving from manly and heading over to get a chance to meet up with the group and enjoy the day out.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Mate,


Well it really depends on what time we get away and which way we go. I guess it will be around 10.30 give or take.


See you then!

For those of you wondering about the history of this magnificent Island, I'm currently working on some projects there and have this info I thought some of you may find interesting!


§  Peel Island is also known by its Aboriginal names of Teerk Roo Ra (pronounced took-a-ra) meaning ‘Place of many Shells’ or Chercuba.
§  It was named the Fifth Island by Matthew Flinders in 1799
§  then Peel’s Island by John Oxley in 1824 after Sir Robert Peel, Secretary of State for the Home Department in England
§  Later this was shortened to Peel Island
Its Pre European History:
§  before the Europeans came, Aboriginal tribes from the surrounding islands visited to feasting and ceremonial purposes
§  The island had fresh water and food from surrounding reefs
§  Many middens remain today
Its Post-European History:
At the south – eastern end (Bluff):
§  Quarantine Station (early 1870s until 1910)
§  Agriculture attempts (1906 – 1910)
§  Inebriate Home (1910 until 1916)
At north-western end:
§  Lazaret (Leprosarium) (1907 until 1959)
§  Recreational use (after 1959)
§  The Anglican Church Grammar School (‘Churchie’) leased part of the lazaret buildings from 1968 until 1993
§  In 1993 the island was to be gazetted as a National Park
§  This process was interrupted by a Native Title claim which was not resolved until December 27th 2007, when Peel was gazetted a National Park and Conservation Park under the joint management of Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and the Quandamooka People – the island’s traditional owners.
§  In 1999, The Friends of Peel Island Association Inc. (FOPIA) was formed to assist with maintenance and restoration work, and to promote public awareness of Peel’s cultural and historic values.
The origin of the term LAZARET:
C.R.Wiburd, a former Quarantine Officer at Brisbane, in his article “Notes on the History of Maritime Quarantine in Queensland, 19th Century” gives the following explanation of the term “Lazaret”:
“Maritime Quarantine, as we know it, commenced in 1348 when the overseers of Public Health at Venice were authorised to spend public moneys for the purpose of isolating infected ships, persons, and goods, at an island of the lagoon. A medical man was stationed with the sick. As a result of these arrangements the first maritime quarantine station of which there is any record was established in 1403 at the island of Santa Maria di Nazareth at Venice. The Venetian Authorities framed in 1348 a code of quarantine regulations, which served as a model for all others to a very recent period. All merchants and persons coming from the Levant were compelled to remain in the House of St. Lazarus for a period of forty days before admission into the city. From this is derived the term “lazaret” which has persisted until now.”
There were two Lazarus mentioned in the Bible. One was raised by Jesus from the dead. He was not a leper. The other, after whom the House of St. Lazarus was named, was the leper mentioned in the parable of the rich man and the beggar (Luke 16:1) which begins, “There was once a rich man who dressed in the most expensive clothes and lived in great luxury every day. There was also a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who used to be brought to the rich man’s door, hoping to eat the bits of food that fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs would come and lick his sores…
