'Island In The Sun' | Original Artwork
Fitzroy Island Turtle Artwork
Our first ever experience of Fitzroy Island and it really was heavenly. Beach to ourselves, soft coral fields swaying in the current and a perfectly positioned turtle that obliged ever so willingly to be a model.
The highlight was Dave calling a couple of children over to see her with their mother. The family were on holiday and had never experienced seeing a turtle in the wild before.
As they exited the beach excitedly I overheard the older sister squeal to her younger brother:
“did you know… That nice man called us over and there was a TURTLE! Like a real life turtle, it was swimming like us.”
Sometimes things are better shared.

Shipping at SEA
We take delivery seriously around here.
Your order will be printed and carefully backed up us at SEA and sent to you via Australia Post.
We visit our local Australia Post Office weekly on Friday. All attempts are made to ensure we post more frequently if possible.
Larger items will be sent via Courier. Pickup times vary using our courier service.
Our small prints are neatly packaged in their own rigid flat mailer (which are 100% recyclable, yay!).
Larger prints are carefully rolled and shipped in tough mailing tubes.
All prints are carefully wrapped and/or rolled in acid free tissue paper.
Backing boards are used on flat postage to ensure that corners do not get damaged in transit.
*Please note: We are based in Port Douglas, which is a regional area.
Next day delivery is not an option for postage from our location. We have been shipping items for years, with different suppliers and have found that Australia Post, standard shipping is the sweet spot for cost & timely service.
Parcels usually take up to 5 business days within Queensland and at least 2 weeks when shipping interstate.
Rest assured, we do everything we can to ensure you receive your artwork or giftware in a timely manner. Your parcel's shipping time is ultimately out of our control (sorry... we don't run a freight company and don't make the rules).
Free shipping is offered on orders over $100.
Orders under $100 will incur a small postage fee of $10.
We have made this decision as we can no longer rely on untracked postage services. They are simply too un-reliable and un-predictable.
International shipping incurs a $25 AUD fee. This includes tracking your package via Australia Post.
Our listed freight charges for international shipping do not cover framed or stretched artworks. Please contact us directly for a quote on framed artwork.
International shipping times vary between countries, typically it takes between 7 and 21 working days. If your order is a priority, please email us as soon as possible with your order number and we can try our best to get it to you in time.
