Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Clive was kind enough and drove me to Rainbow Beach.
There I met up with an old friend, Laura, who I first met in Katoomba, Blue Mountains and then again in Byron. We knew we were both going to Fraser and we said why not together. 🙂

All of us who were going to Fraser Island the next day had to meet up in the afternoon and watch an instructive video for security reasons. What to think of when driving a 4WD and what to think of when seeing a Dingo or two.
Also we just brought a smaller bag each to the island and left our big bags at the hostel in Rainbow Beach. The told us what to bring and everything very thoroughly, except that it’s very cold at night.

So we spent 3 days and 2 nights on the island. We had our camp on Aboriginal land which was really nice. We were supposed to camp but happy me met a Greek couple who showed me some beds and yes that’s where i slept. 🙂

Still outside as you can see, with a thicker mosquito net. And a bit more Dingo-safe :p

What did we do on the island then? We all got to drive, either on the beach or the inland roads. To be honest the inland roads looked pretty rough compared to a flat beach with some creeks you have to pass. I drove on inland roads. Just to clarify, the entire island is all sand. The roads are just a looot of sand basically. As this is the worlds largest sand island and thus also a world heritage. This might not look too rough but it was hard to take a clear picture when it is pretty bumpy all the time.

And when we drove on the beach it could look like this:

The places we’ve visited were Lake McKenzie;
a fresh water lake where the water is so fresh it not suitable for many species. An unexpected turquoise, blue and clear water color which you would not expect from a lake but maybe the Caribbean or Thailand.

Can you see where the water line is on the beach?
