We have just returned from a Fraser Island family getaway, and…. “WOW!” You can see why it’s known as Gods Country. Now for those of you who read our newsletters from afar and have never seen or heard of this magic natural phenomenon, Kerri and I thought we would share some images with you from our trip and take you on a small (but impeccably pretty) trip from the comfort of your living room armchair. Fraser Island is situated right on our doorstep here on the Sunshine Coast, just a two hour drive from the front doors of Camping Country Australia, and it just happens to claim the remarkable status as “The worlds largest sand Island”.
Whilst Kerri and I have both been there before, it has been quite a few years between visits for both of us and it captivated like never before. We didn’t just sit on our hands and soak up the beach – with only a few free days at our disposal we really made the most of our time on the island. We got actively involved in loads of adventure covering countless miles across, throughout, along and around this amazing paradise. We swam in pristine lakes, drove through tall timbered rainforests, floated down 40,000 year old springs and spent hours soaking up the views from many of the incredible scenic lookouts… and the greatest thing of all – “It’s all mother nature in her natural state!”
Enjoy the pictures and feel free to leave a comment below if you wish.
