Day Three- Rainbow Beach Adventure Company - Dingos Tour. Road trip day seven east coast Australia
2 min read. Created 2018
Early morning start after a long night isn't always the best idea. We packed up camp and was on the road by 8:30am this morning.
Our first stop was a tea tree lake located 45 minute drive in land. The water was so clear and full of tea tree minerals. Although the water seemed very brown it's just as clear as the water i've seen anywhere on this trip. The minerals are intended to condition and help your skin remove bacteria and toxins on the surface of your skin. It was fairly cold this morning when are arrived so a few of us went only half way in before calling it a day. It was however great to feel my skin afterwards and know that it has had a little detox.
We had some lunch at the lake before taking the journey back to the ferry to cross over to Rainbow beach... About 20 minutes into our return our lead vehicle was experiencing some difficulty driving... As "Brendo" our driver got out of the car he was shocked to see the wheel had come off the hub and was pretty much dislocated off the car.
After some serious man power and about 15 minutes later, the car was situated close enough to the side of the road 4wd's could get through. We got a tow back to the beach and waited for a recovery vehicle. #drama
In the mean time we used our resources from the trailer to our full advantage and had some drinks and exchanged stories to pass the time. It's times like these when you make the best out of any situation and having a group of girls where everyone was understanding and accepting of the situation made it all that much better....
After about 30 minutes, we were picked up and taken back to rainbow beach, grabbed some dinner and came down to write these past few days on my blog. It's now 11:30pm and I have to get a morning bus at 7:40am so I am definitely going to sign off and get some sleep.
It's been an amazing 3 days. When traveling it's easy to become easily attached to like minded people. This trip has taught me that I can travel on my own, I can make friends without needing a friend to help me and most off all that the friends you make on these trips near or far will always share these memories for a lifetime.
A big shout out to Brendo our Trip Leader who no matter the circumstance made us feel comfortable and make sure it was always first priority we were having fun. I would 100% recommend Dingo's if you're looking for a tour of Fraser Island. It can be a little pricey depending on the time of year but both tours I've done have been highlights and I am already planning when I'm going to come back and do them again.
