We finally managed to escape the floods in Airlie Beach and heading down to Hervey Bay on another over night bus. The journey wasn't too bad and it was nice to know we were getting away from the rain finally!
Once we arrived at the hostel, we thew our backpacks in the room and headed straight for the beach which was totally amazing. The long white sand and blue sea was beautiful. The sea was like a warm bath which was so lovely and it's our first expericen of the Oz beaches.
The next day we went to Fraser Island on a day trip. We got the ferry over which took about 45mins.The island is so amazing, there isn't any 'roads' there and the main highway is the beach. All the verichles there have to be 4x4 so it was really weird seeing a 4x4 coach! There are only 2 hotels on the island too. We saw some dingos which are wild dogs and you shoudn't go near them as they can attack you. On the ferry back home, we saw some dolphins in the sea which was amazing.
Next stop Noosa!
