Fraser Island 4x4 Posted by Jeffrey on October 18, 2003 in Rainbow Beach, Australia
Yesterday I got back from a 3 day 4x4 / camping trip on Fraser Island and had a spectacular time. I had never driven a 4x4 before, especially not offroad, so the LandCruiser was tonnes of fun! The group of people that I went with (there were 9 of us) was great, we had the best time. We drove along the beach a lot, and swam and floated down Eli Creek (freshest water!) and saw shipwrecks, sand-dunes, dipped in natural ocean pools, watched sharks, turtles and rays hang out at Indian Head. We camped and cooked together, swam in the fresh water of McKenzie Lake (clear blue water on white sandy beach!) and saw Dingos and other animals, enjoying the wild. Fabulous. The pictures can be seen in the Fraser Island Album (http://www.jeffothy.com/australia/gallery/fraser) (but at the time of this writing they have not been posted yet. I'm staying on Rainbow Beach tonite as well, and then I'll probably catch the bus up to Airlie Beach (to go sail the Whitsunday Islands) tomorrow or the next day.
