Brisbane Monday 25th November
Arrived in sunny Bris bright and early and got train to hostel from airport. Checked in all my stuff and headed out straight away to find my way round city and get my bearings...just in case the sun vanished suddenly! Brisbane was cool but after you have kidna seen the city (which takes hafl a day or so) there aint much to do apart from shop or sit in the gardens or that...luckily for me iw as only staying for one day though. Next day i was up early to get my bus to Rainbow Beach! woo!
Tues 25th Rainbow beach
Long day on bus and finally i arrived in Rainbow beach resort, Dingo's! Was lovely! Got in and made friends with some folk in my room and went for drinks with them.Sadly they were all dong the fraser island tour the next day and was on the thurs leaving...
Wed morning my new roomies arrived and luckily for me there was 2 Irish girls who i got on great with! Rachel and Aine (pronuced onya) so we said we would hook up in a fraser isaldn group so make sure we were together in the group of 11. That day we had our fraser island meeting with the staff. They made us watch a video, we learned all about dingo danger, tides etc etc. That ngiht i chilled with the Irish and we packed our stuff as we were leaving the next day early!
Thursday 27th - Saturday 29th Fraser Island
Well after we got off the ferry we made our way through the bumbiest off track roads in our stocked up 4x4 to lake mackenzie! it was a good few hours drive, with lots of loo stops and bumps in road but we got there in time for lunch follwoign our trusty map! it was totally beautiful!! we swam around in the lake getting to know each other bit better and having a laugh before packing up and moving onto the ship wreck and camp before dark.
That night we camped near the ship wreck off the beach...rachel cracked out the goon and after about 6pm i remember nothing....needless to say the 3 of us drank two bags of goon, i forget how many litres of wine that is per bag, it was rough like. I dont reemmber much of the ngiht but i woke to find i had taken my sleeping bag out of the tent at somepoint and slept behind it ( i then had flashbacks of my vommiting before bed... i didnt want to be ill in tent so sletp outside) i remember waking up with rachel trying to drage me into the tent drunk, she too was very smashed but was like you have to come insdie...the dingo's will get you!i made some noises and selpt outside. Needless to say..we were all very rough the next morning... Though to be fair, the other groups that camped next to us, few girls where still throwing up the next day! iw asn't that bad. Just wait till yous see the pics....haha
2nd day in fraser i powered on, we climbed a area called indian head for veiews, we seen sharsk, sea turtles and stingrays down in the sea from the top of the head! was pretty cool! then we stopped for lunch at a camp then went and found camp for the night. I drank nothing that night and went to bed early as i was still dying...the irsish weren't far behind me! haha
3rd day we drove to lake wabby...well drove to the point of entry then you had to walk 2ks to get to it, over sand dunes!! nightmare!! finally made it there in the end and we all (bar one) stripped off to bathers and jumped in the lake!! after splashing round for while then walked the long road back to car and then drove back to ferry point to get back to mainland for 1pm.
Back in rainbow beach, we all went for showers and we had sand in places you shouldn't!! the joy on being on a sand island! then i met rach and aine and we went for lunch, then we went back to nap, then went for dinner later! We where all on the same bus the next day that was leaving at 7am to noosa for them and for me i was going all the way down to byron bay!!
