Out of interest, why are they called Holbourne ? I know of the island of Foula, west of the Shetlands, that were owned by the Holbourn family...... This family name being my family name. So to me to see islands with the same name but with an extra 'e' is interesting
Not easy to find much information. We will be sailing through the area in a couple of months and were interested in Holbourne. It is just outside the sailing area of the Whitsunday sailing guide and all I have read says, "sheltered reef anchorage on south-west". And, of course the fun stories about disappearing ships.
But it does sound like it's not visited that often, so maybe it's a good stop.
