After leaving Airlie Beach we headed down to Hervey Bay with an overnight stop at Kroombit cattle Station! This was a bit random but good fun, we learnt how to crack a whip, rode a mechanical bull, learnt to lassoo and then had to catch a goat, then we went on a horse ride and mustered the goats and got them into another field!
The next day we had a day of sitting on a bus as we left at about 11am and didnt arrive in Hervey Bay until about 5pm! There isn't much to do in Hervey Bay, so the first day we walked to the supermarket and the marina and that was it!!
On Thursday we went over to Fraser Island, which is a island completely made of sand! we were in a jeep of 8 people and all got turns in driving the 4x4 over the sand! We visited some really pretty places and swam in the fresh water lake. We camped over and had an amazing dinner of steak and fried potatoes! then we went and sat on the beach because you cant make any noise after 9pm, but we all star gazed and it was so beautiful! we saw 4 shooting stars! The next day we did more driving, the driver said it was the worst conditions for driving in but we all did very well! there was a lot of soft sand so we got quite stuck but there were people in worse situations so we did the tourist thing and laughed and took pictures!! We got back to Hervey Bay about 6pm, and we so glad to be able to have showers as we had got very dusty! We then had a night out with the people from our jeep and found that there really aren't many young people in Hervey Bay as the nightclub was pretty empty, especially for a friday night!!
Off to Rainbow Beach this afternoon, so will probably do very little and just enjoy the sunshine!!
Hope its cold and rainy at home!
