Waking up in the bush can be cool but also remembering we share it with nature isn’t so cool...
With alomost Everyone nursing a heavy hangover the birds thought they would wake us up at 6:30am...
We are going to leave the campsite at 9am today to explore some more of the island. It’s raining this morning so I’m sure the weather will depict what we do today. It’ll be interesting how the terrain holds up.
Today us girls are driving alone without our tour leader. It's the first time both drivers have driven on these conditions and in such big cars. As the law states you have to be under the legal drinking limit to drive the tour cars one of us drivers failed the breath test. With this minor hiccup, we organised our drivers and headed out.
Our first stop for the day was at the Champagne Pools, it was cold and raining but we made the most of it and had a quick dip before heading back to the cars. We then headed to a lookout and saw over 5 tiger sharks, 2 sting rays, 3 turtles and a lot of scared tourists....
Once our second driver was under the legal driving limit we swapped drivers, got back in our car and headed to a natural water river. Always 18 degrees and always fresh water we gathered some pool inflatables and went up and down the stream a few times. The best parts of our trip would definitely be the spontaneous detours and unplanned sights we saw.
Later in the afternoon with the rain and wind continuing we managed to get back in our cars and visit the shipwreck famous on Fraser Island. Shipwrecked in 1935 the cruise liner sits 3 stories deep on the sand bring thousands of tourists every year to the Island. The weather conditions didn't give us much of a break with rain and wind so we opted for a quick history lesson, photo op and back in our cars before heading back to base camp for the night.
Arriving roughly around 5:30pm we all had a chat before starting the cooking and of course followed by a few drinks. I had to best vegan food this trip and it was so nice for them to accommodate on such short notice.
We thankfully went to sleep fairly early compared to last night. Sharing a campsite with over 150 others it's the perfect opportunity to meet new people who aren't on your trip and mingle with other groups!
Tomorrow is our last day on tour and it's always so difficult to be with people for 2-3 days straight and then go separate ways. Our group bonded over a lot, being only girls it was so nice to just have girl time and enjoy company of like minded people who are there for the same reasons as you are!
