Our time in Australia has been spent catching up with lots of family and friends, attending several weddings and the Christening of our Godchild. We have also managed to squeeze in a week of very rustic camping on Fraser Island with friends. One of Dean's most favourite places!
Fraser is a great place. A chance to get back to basics and see a very different side of Australia. We free camped (where you just find a spot on the beach and set up camp) for 7 days with no showers, no bathrooms, no internet... OK. Thats not strictly true. One of our friends had an iPad with him so I got to check in every now and again!
The real beauty about our trip this year was going in October. No mosquito's or flies, not too hot and not too many tourists so you had the beach all to yourself to drive along at your leisure!
Here are just a few pics from our trip to give you a flavour of what it was like!
The main road!
Doing the dishes, Fraser Island style!
Cute visitors to our camp. This one little guy, who we called 'Ernie' came to see us everyday. I was terrified the first time and eventually got used to him sniffing around the tent at night!
As we loaded onto the ferry and prepared to head home, I got one last glance at the island reflected in the windows....
