Everyone had bigged up Fraser island to me during my travels so I was hoping it would not disappoint me, believe me it did not and has turned out to be my highlight of Australia,

So whats so good about the island???? Well firstly we had a cracking group of people to travel with not only in our car, but the other cars which topped of the whole experience.

So our car.....of course off road specialists Macdonald and Hodgson.

Not so off road specialist Gordon (sorry man your driving sucked!!) from Singapore
Team Germany volley ball team Elina and Lea
Cool Dutch duo Karim and Yolanda
and the domestic blues from Portia and Carl..have you guys made up yet???

not to mention the other cars....Alexa, Gitta, Josh, Callum, Sabine, John, Peppa, Becky and the mad Irish guys (even the bug eater) and all the others.......

Oh the drinking, our games of YEH HA and the gate crashing/mid strength/scissor sister Ozzie wankers that turned up and the hangover in blistering heat.

So apart from all the sand, that gets everywhere the big draw to Fraser island is the miles of empty beeches, spectacular inland lakes and remoteness.

On the first day we visited Lake Wabby, with its large sand dune heads over looking the lake in which the fish bit you. Very strange feeling. Although we had a grueling long hot walk through spider infested rainforests to get there. Laters that day we camped at Lake Elis (i think cant quite remember the name)

The next day with stinking hangover we drove up the beech via a ship wreck to Indian Heads to views large schools of fish, sharks, rays and dolphins. A dip in the champagne pools resolved the hang over and later more drinking and star gazing was on at Eurong station.

Final day we visited the magnificent Lake McKenzie, which looked more like a tropical island than lake and the quite central station for cockatoo spotting in the trees.

So we all survived the wild dingos, apart from the irihes sausages and the 3/4 days will be some of the best in my memory from OZ....
