Fraser Island - lake trekking

A few weeks ago I headed back to one of my favourite places ever, Fraser Island. Dad organised the trip and my little bro Jake, Ben and I headed along. It was just a weekend trip but Dad had organised a pretty hefty schedule, something I've been guilty of doing in the past.  Intense planning also comes complete with pros and cons (pros you get to see lots, cons you leave really tired :p)

Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the World and is know for it's beautiful fresh water lakes - some with crystal clear drinkable water, others coloured by the surrounding tea trees and all complimented by gorgeous white sand - paradise. 

In two days, we visited 6 lakes, a ship wreck, the natural cathedral of coloured sands, camped inland, made friends with kookaburras and drove over many many kms of sandy bumpy tracks - fun times :)






































Even though we have just recently moved we are moving again, thanks to the owners wanting to move back into their own home (how dare they!). The clan has dispersed and it's now just Ben, Gremlin, the chickens and I moving into our own pad. I'm excited for the new adventures that lie beyond and I apologise in advance for this blog going a tad quiet whilst we move and get settled. 

See you guys on the flip side!

  2. Amazing Fee, your pictures are incredible, the sight of the paradise alongside with you guys is perfect for this Friday!!! I wish I could also visit it physically someday and pet the kookaburras, ok, hahaha not petting kookaburras I would admire them from a comfortable (for them) distance :) - Golden jelly shoes (yay) and the picture of you with the peace sign puts the largest smile on my face, you are too cute girl! :) - I'm very (very!) happy for your new adventures on a pad for only the three of you.

    1. These kookaburras came so close you could almost pat them - well maybe if you gave them food (although a big no no on the the island!) You definitely should put Fraser on your travel wish list for one day, or you know Queensland, Sunshine Coast :) I'm excited too for our new adventures - Fee and Ben-ifying our new place :) Thanks for your nice comment!

    1. Aw thanks Jane and I definitely agree about the unpacking part I got a start on that today and it's made me a much happier kid than I have been feeling the past few days, lifting and dragging, loading and unloading - horrible!

    1. When I'm in shorts and a tshirt here with the flan blaring it's easy to forget the other half of the World. At least you can wear tacky christmas sweaters! :) :)
