Fraser Island Day 3

Today was 4-wheel driving day on Fraser Islands infamous beach stretches

And as you do, planes just land and take off at random

It was a shame it was so cloudy. The incredibly clear and blue water of Lake McKenzie just doesn't come across so well in the photos

Maheno wreck

The stretch just before Champagne pools

So called because when the waves break over the rocks, it looks like champagne!

Clear clear water!

Fraser Island Day 2

Channelling our inner whale like echo location

It was windy so lets hope the waters are not too choppy for whale watching

When you don't have sunnies, goggles will have to do for wind protection

Spotting the first set of mother and calf

They came very close to the boat! and one swam right underneath it

Because whale watching is such exhausting work...

Our "share" burger for lunch

The plan was to watch the sunset but the clouds never cleared

Oh well no reason not to enjoy the seafood spread

Fraser Island

We had a mini break to Fraser Island to celebrate Jonah's birthday and to use up our expiring frequent flyer points. We had never been before and it was a surprisingly good time! Our home for our stay was the Kingfisher Bay Resort with most of our transfers included as well as whale watching and 4 wheel drive hire. Here is a short pictorial account of our weekend away...

Spoilt by freshly baked birthday cookies in the morning!

It was a day of multiple modes of transport starting off with a plane to Hervey Bay

Our transfer from the airport was included but we expect a limousine!!!

Once we've checkecd into the main island reception, it was onto a bus to head to the wharf

A little boy enjoying all the modes of transport

It was then onto the ferry to Fraser Island!

It was windy outside!

Our last transfer, a trolley to take us from the pier to the hotel building itself

The swamp behind the pool, turn around and you see...


Happy hour!

Jonah's birthday meal. A bush tucker inspired menu.

Birthday dessert

Unfortunately this dessert a big tasted awful and I eat most desserts!
