About Fraser Island
Fraser island is the largest Sand Island in the world. That means we literally step on the sand soil whenever we’re on the island! Its length is 123 kilometer and 22 kilometers wide. It’s listed among another Australia heritage site such as Uluru and Great Barrier Reef. The island is named after Eliza Frazer, a survivor from a shipwreck that landed on the island. Fraser island is home of about 50 species, it has over 100 lakes (and that makes Fraser island a places with largest number of lakes in Australia after Tazmania). If you want to visit Fraser Island, you can choose between Hervey Bay, Maryborough and Bundaberg. My departure point was Hervey Bay.
When choosing the tour, my option was narrowed down to the two providers below:
- Fraser Explorer tour (link here: http://www.fraserexplorertours.com.au/fraser-island-tours/fraser-island-day-tours/hervey-bay-day-tour.html) and
- Fraser Free (link here: https://www.fraserfree.com.au/fraser-island-tour/1-day-fraser-explorer-tour-from-hervey-bay?/fraser-island-tour/1-day-explorer-tour-from-hervey-bay)
Maheno Ship Wreck
The journey towards Maheno Ship Wreck was exciting, we passed the the Seventy-five Miles beach along the coast before stopping to the wreck. The ship was just stood there, like a set from “Ghost Ship” movie. It’s beautiful, it’s eery, and it’s picturesque. We stopped by just to take the picture and enjoy the scenery before moving to the next stop.
Pinnacle Colored Sand
Along the way, the tour guide often reminded us of Dingo. Dingo looks like a dog, but it’s also somewhat like a wolf. Sadly, I didn’t encounter any Dingo that day, despite rigorous and continuously warning and explanation about Dingo.
