East Coast Trip: Fraser Island

I booked a 3 day 2 night camping safari trip to the worlds largest sand island, Fraser Island. With the company Pippies we were put into groups of 8 to drive our 4-wheel-drive vehicles around the island and rainforests. We slept in our private campsite and breakfast, lunch and dinner was always provided. There was enough for seconds so it was pretty decent!

Day 1:

  • Driving along the beach (everyday)
  • Central Station Rainforest
  • Lake McKenzie
  • Maheno Shipwreck

 

Once we got back to campsite, some of us went up a red sand dune to watch the sunset. If you’re going don’t bring alcohol unless you want to be drinking sand too!

Day 2:

  • Champagne Pools
  • Pinnacles
  • Indian Head
  • Tea tree lake

The tea tree lake was so good for ex-foliating your skin, you could even brush your teeth with the sand!

Day 3:

  • Eli Creek
  • Hammerstone Sandblow.
  • Lake Wabby

When you got into Lake Wabby it had those fish that eat your dead skin so that was a weird experience!

Driving the 4-wheel-drive vehicles was such a funny experience because the car was bouncing around like crazy! For days it sounded like someone was revving the engine because someone must have been driving the car like a racecar and blew a hole in the exhaust pipe…I swear it wasn’t me.

Group 4!

Whilst driving we were lucky enough to see dolphins in the ocean. I also saw Dingos,  a snake on the beach and in the campsite I met a few crazy iguanas.

When I arrived back in Rainbow Beach I was so exhausted I was asleep by 9pm. Now I’m on a 18 hour bus journey to Airlie Beach, fun times ahead!
