Early start today - we got up at 6.30am to have free pancakes and then met our group at the jeep in the car park. It took a while to get ready to go, as we had to everything onto the roof rack, check we had everything, and most importantly learn how to drive the jeep! Then we were off! We drove to the barge crossing, and once on Fraser Island went to Eurong, which is one of about three townships on the island. Fraser is the world's biggest sand island, so we were mainly driving on the beach. We stopped at Eurong to use the toilet and for drinks, and then James drove us to Lake Mackenzie, which was quite a bumpy ride along a mud track. Lunch was quickly had in the car park and then we walked down to the water. The lake was absolutely beautiful - it had white sand all around it and the water was really fresh and clear blue. We spent most of the afternoon there and then Lisa drive from the lake to a spot further up the island called Polygon.
As the sun was setting we had to quickly set up camp on the beach behind one of the sand dunes, and then Lisa, Daniela, James and I cooked dinner; steak, potato salad and salad. We drank lots of goon that night (cheap Australian 'wine'), played some games and went skinny dipping, which was probably not a great idea with jellyfish around, but it was fun!
