We did the two day tour of Fraser Island. Michael didn't want to do the self drive (you can hire a jeep and self tour the island with a load of other backpackers) which was fair enough, so we did a bus tour which has a driver. Warning: It's very BUMPY! The price inluded the tour, an all you can eat buffet (Mick's favourite!) and accommodation. Fraser which is the largest sand island in the world and used to have thousands of Dingos but that population has been reduced to a few hundred due to people feeding them. Everytime a dingo eats from the hand of a human they are killed, which has resulted in many dingo deaths. Awww. Lots to see on Fraser including sand..lake meqenzie (which has exfoliating - guess? - yup sand! A rain forest..sand..marine life - sharks!..sand..a ship wreck and more sand. Awesome! Oh and we took a plane ride too so we could see all that from above. Brilliant!
