"My No.1 'beach' in QLD" Fraser Island by backpackerbaby
Fraser Island Travel Guide: 166 reviews and 465 photos
If you're adventurous and have enough time, head to Hervey Bay and join 4 other backpackers at one of the many hostels there to form a self-drive camping tour group. You guys will take turn to be the driver of the 4WD and to be stuck together for the following three days. YES, it's a 4WD! No other vehicles can travel on the island. Even some 4WDs got troubles before. Not adventurous enough? OK, there are some dingoes scattering over the island, which always target at people's food, so when you're cooking or even sleeping, haha, don't feel strange if one of the un-invited guests comes to you. How does it sound now?
Hey, don't be scared by my words above, it's just for fun. The fact is, I was so desperate for joining one of the backpacking tours at Hervey Bay! Unfortunately, I had just enough time for a so-called one day tour on a 4WD 18 seater with a more mature group. I believed that it would be much more fun and suitable for me to be in a camping group, though I'm super afraid of dingoes or even dogs! If I could do the trip again, I'd definitely make myself to Hervey Bay first.
Though the weather wasn't so nice on the day of my visit, I saw some special faces of the island. Though my groupmates were mature, I met some nice people and had a nice chat at the BBQ lunch. Though I wasn't the driver, I got the chance to sit in the front on the way back when it's high tide and I shot the above pic which really gave me an adventurous feeling.
- Pros:Beautiful lakes, amazing sand blows, superb beaches, excellent camp sites, super nice drunk locals....AWESOME!
- Cons:Dingoes can be quite scary, particularly at night!
- In a nutshell:Camping is a MUST! 1 day is simply not enough.
