📸 — Noosa & Fraser Island, Australia

We left Noosa and drove to Hervey Bay to catch a ferry, rent a car, and do some 4WD’ing on Fraser Island. It was quite an adventure just to get there, but here are some highlight pictures of the trip… it was beautiful and you can read the story of our island adventure here.

Random facts we learned about Fraser Island:

  • Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world
  • If you have the chance to visit — consider doing a 4WD on your own camping trip. Most tour groups only get 20–30 min in each location.
  • The wild dingos are the healthiest and most pure bread dingos in the world and live on Fraser. They are most pure bread because there are no other dog like species that live there, and on the Island it is a protected area so the fish and food are much bigger and healthier for them to eat.
  • You can find trees that are no where else but on Fraser Island called — “Black butt eucalyptus” & “Burt bottoms” and “elf” something 😌

The sand in Noosa would absorb your feet if you stood still for too long.

You can actually learn to make a guitar while drinking coffee. Oli really wanted to go but it was closed.

Meat pies and Ginger Beer — my new fav.

🔊 Sound on for this one. When you walked in the sand it made a weird noise.. kind of like a white board marker!

Both mangos cost $4 each. I think my right hand one is the winner.

A lake that is surrounded by tea trees. It makes the water turn colours and taste like tea! (its apparently good for the skin).
