Double Life in Far North Queensland

As I woke the first morning on Double Island, with the insistent rays of the Far North Queensland sun streaming through the bedroom’s long, linen drapes, I had an intriguing realization – I didn’t actually know what this island looked like. It had been dark – with a humid tropical heat that came as a blissful contrast to Sydney’s winter chill – when our plane landed outside of Cairns, and the island was as pitch black as the surrounding seas upon our arrival by boat later that night. Never having seen a picture, I lay in bed and tried to imagine what was waiting for me outside

Island Movie: Shutter Island

Martin Scorsese is the latest director to take movie goer’s to a private island. And along for the ride is Leonardo DiCaprio who is not stranger to private islands, owning one in Belize himself.  Dicaprio plays US Marshal Teddy Daniels who visits a hospital for the criminally insane on remote Shutter Island to investigate a disappeared murderess.  It is a complex tale of who is insane and who can be trusted, with Leo riveting as a troubled cop. The movie is playing in theatres around the world right now
