Fraser Island

From Brisbane, we went to Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world.
More information here.
First day, first contact under the sun:

Eli Creek

The Mahano

You can not only drive on the beach, but also fly from it. The dingos don't mind.

Second day: the rain forest, under the rain...

a strangler fig

One of the lake (not the McKenzie). Although it was cloudy, the colors of the water were incredible, and the water itself was very nice, very clean and not salty at all.

Fraser island provides a lot of wildlife, not only dingos, but also lots of sea birds and fishing eagles, and certainly a lot of other animals we did not spot. This alone is very amazing for a city girl. As we were leaving the island, I saw tree fishing eagles in the sky, fighting for the same fish, and sea birds diving into the sea. I saw scenes like that on TV, but for real, it is breath taking.

GLORIOUS skies, Vero! It's so cool that you got to see so much wildlife and enjoy a climate so different from your own.

We are just catching up with your travels. What a lot of wonderful photos. We love these tours from traveling bloggers. I think we learn more that way than from a regular travel site. Thanks for sharing it all.

wags, Lola

I'd so love to see Fraser Island. It looks like such a wonderful place and I've heard so much about it. My brother and his wife had a lovely vacation there quite a few years ago.
