Got to Rainbow beach on a night bus from Airlie beach. We checked into Dingo's backpackers (An original name), grabbed lunch and headed for the beach We chilled out on the beach for a few hours, walked up and down the beach, headed back to the hostel, bumped into a friend from college in the car park and got briefed on the next few days on Fraser island, regarding groups, driving, food etc. We met our group, had dinner and a few beers and had an early night!
Up early, had pancakes for breakfast and got another briefing and driving the trucks and took off at 9. We met our guide Kevin and then headed off to catch the ferry to the island, we then drove off up a gorgeous beach and in through some real off road in places where you would be afraid to walk
Woke up early this morning by Annie who was convinced that there was a dingo sleeping in a bed in the dorm next to hers, it just turned out to be a Sweedish girl! We got up, had breakfast, and then headed for a swim in a river to blow the cobwebs out from the night before! We then stopped off at a ship wreck and some sand dunes and then headed off to some cliffs overlooking the beaches. Following that we headed on to a place called the champagne pools, had a swim there and then did some fishing and headed back to the camp, hung out with our group, had some more drinks and hit the bed!
Up at 7:30, cooked breakfast, piled some weary bodies into the truck and took off to visit a lake in the middle of a rainforest that was surrounded by a sand dune, slightly random! We swam there for a while and then went back to the truck, had lunch and made our way to the mainland, where we cleaned out the truck and checked back into Dingos for the night, had dinner and then slept like a baby!
Up at 9, grabbed breakfast, said goodbye to our group and jumped onto a bus to Brisbane!
