It took a couple of hours to drive from Rainbow Beach to Hervey Bay, we had a pizza from Dominos for lunch it was yummy!!!
We only had it because it was cheap Tuesdays and it only cost $5-bargain! We are staying in a hostel with the company who we are going to Fraser Island with, it is nice to be in an air conditioned room instead of the van for a night! We had to attend a safety meeting at 6pm, they basically just try and scare you into being sensible while on the island. We met our group who we will be spending the next 3 days with, there are 2 Irish couples, a Scottish couple, a English girl and us, they all seem cool so should be a good laugh.
We had to be up early as we had to meet the group at 7.30am at the 4x4 to talk over the equipment and how to use the car
The first place we went to was Lake Wabby, its pretty cool, theres a massive sand dune that dips into the lake. The weather is pretty dull so we couldn't enjoy the lake to its full potential, walking back to the beach we got attacked by mostquitoes. We were suppose to camp on the beach but weather got worse as the afternoon went on, the wind was pretty stronge and the clouds looked quite black, so we went to one of the campground as its abit more sheltered. We had a BBQ, which was yum. It rained all night and I didn't bring a coat or jumper onto the island with me, the moral of the stroy is don't ever listen to boys when it comes to clothing!! Everyone got pretty drunk so it was still really fun!
The next day we were suppose to be up and on the beach by 7am, but due to the drunk antics last night we weren't ready until half 7, however it didn't matter because a ranger came up to us and told us the beach was in a bad condition due to all the rain so he advised us not to go up there until after high tide at 11am because we would just get stuck in the sane
On our last morning on Fraser, the weather was a bit better YAY!!! We went to Lake Mckenzie, our favourite part of the island. Its a fresh water lake, so blue and lovely white sand. We had a nice morning swimming and chilling. Alot of the group got sunburnt even though it was abit cloudy. Alex was quite pink as he was in the water for about 2 hours with no sunscreen on-naughty! Lake Mckenzie was our last stop on the island. We had a really good group which made up for the rubbish weather, I think if the weather had been beautiful we would of enjoyed it more and the scenery would of been more specatular. I think both me and Alex were expecting more from the trip purely because it is so hyped up in Australia, but we still had a good time. When we got back on to the mainland we decided to have a massive dinner, we had chicken burgers and chips from the chip shop was stunning!!! We were stuff!!!!
