Day 5: Fraser Island
Wake up early (hangovers are no excuse!) to a breakfast of toast and cereal before getting back in the cars to head further north. Arrive at the Champagne Pools to cleanse under waves crashing over into the natural rock pools, creating the bubbles where it gets it name. Then back to the cars again for a short drive to your next destination. Climb the stunning Indian Head (one of the few rocks formations on the island) to spot the amazing marine wildlife that can be seen off of Fraser Island. If luck is on your side, you can normally spot: humpback whales (August – October), sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, huge rays and many schools of tropical fish. Next a drive back to your camp for lunch and then onto our next location. A short drive down the beach is the largest creek on the eastern beach; Eli Creek. Take a walk up the boardwalk with a rubber ring and float down these serene waters, which pumps up to 4 million litres of fresh water into the sea every hour. The second to last location of the day is a short drive from Eli Creek and your camp; the Maheno shipwreck. As the sun lowers in the sky watch the rusty wreck against the sea sky and incredible coloured sands seen up the coast. Finally, a short stop at the Pinnacles on the way back to your camp. Seen from the beach, this sand formation is a prime example of the coloured sands seen all up the Fraser coastline. Arriving back at your camp to take a breather after an amazing day, wash away the sand in the amazing amenities block just a short walk from our campsite…… then more food! As part of your Fraser family you cook spaghetti bolognaise together with garlic bread followed by another night of socialising under some of the southern hemisphere’s most spectacular stars.
