Wow, what can we say but wow! Fraser Island is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit.
Although we didn’t see any dingoes, we saw quite a bit of the tourist hotspots because we hired a 4WD for a day and explored a bit.
Lake McKenzie is breathtaking and even my photo doesn’t do it justice.
The Kingfisher Bay Resort is yachtie friendly so we ate there, had a hot spa and even better, a hot shower.
We moved up the west side and spent a couple of days just soaking up the scenery.
As we were leaving we saw a shark fin swimming about which I had never seen before so that was a bit exciting!
The weather is awful with strong winds, rain and cold so we are tucked up safely in Port Bundaberg Marina for a week. It’s a chance to service the engine, do laundry, reprovision and rest a bit.
This marina is cruiser friendly too with courtesy buses to Bundaberg daily, markets on Sunday and they have a cruisers lounge where about 40 fellow boaties had a bbq last night with meat supplied by the marina.
The local IGA and the Pub both have courtesy buses and will come and collect you and return you if you have shopping or want to eat out. Plus we get a 10% discount at the marina for being Shaggers! We may stay awhile,
Freya over and out xo
