We spent a full day at Fraser Island and it didn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to get back for a longer stay. We were going to take our car across on the ferry but decided that we would spend our day there driving around in circles and end up missing all the best sights, so we booked a 4 x 4 tour and we weren’t disappointed. We went with Fraser Island Adventures and our bus driver/tour guide Kevin was a wealth of information and full of good ‘ol aussie humour. I really can’t say how much we enjoyed ourselves with Fred even having a swim in Lake Mckenzie which is a fresh water lake on the Island. Such an amazing place. We left at about 6.15am in the morning and didn’t get back until about 7.15 pm. We were totally exhausted.
We had had enough of the Bruce Hwy and full to overflowing caravan parks so we decided to change our non-plan and head inland to Kingaroy. Of course I won’t mention Murphy’s Law again but it just happened to be -4C this morning in Kingaroy and the weather during the day wasn’t much warmer. We arrived early so walked around town and visited The Peanut Van and bought some yummy fresh peanuts and a jar of peanut paste, which is a bit like peanut butter. We think we will head off to Toowoomba tomorrow and have a couple of days there. We’ll see where the road leads, and also start acclimatizing ourselves for winter in Melbourne.
