Fraser Island


 Ian and I spent one glorious day on Fraser Island. It it is the largest sand island in the world and is spectacularly beautiful.
 We booked with a tour group who organised the whole day for us (such a relief!). They also had the most amazing (and kind of terrifying) 4WD buses that whizzed over the sandy bush tracks and zoomed along the sand dunes. We scored a seat just behind the driver!
We started off with a walk in the rainforest... and tried to avoid things hitting us on the head.
Then ran around between Eli Creek and 75 mile beach.


Explored the Maheno shipwreck. I love the layers of rust and barnacles - some amazing textures.

Had a visit from a little plane with a pilot who looked the part (he was even wearing aviators!)
 Then finished the day with a swim in lake McKenzie.

 Then jumped on the ferry home where we met the Ferry Fur Ball. I don't think she was very happy about us invading her ship.
Outfit Details:
Dress: Vintage, gift from my sister
Bag: Beacons Closet
Shoes: Clarks originals

Ian wore his sun safe rash-shirt and his new hat from 'The Man Shop' :)

    I love your skirt-waist dress Rebeccak. :D
    And gee, this post brings back some memories.

    My family and I had a holiday on Fraser Island! It was fun, but also scary with driving around and getting bogged and well... We actually cut the holiday short because in the end we didn't want to wreck our only car!

    The shipwrecks and snorkeling around there was amazing though!

    xox,
