Day 23 of Australia Adventure - Fraser Island  to Noosa., Australia   - May 9th 2010

Get up this morning feeling quite good and no hang over. I make it over to the Dingo Bar for breakfast, which is really good today. Then we hang out and wait for the day tour of Fraser Island.
We meet the buses for our tour which are 4wd mini buses, in which we go on 2 of them.
We head off and into the other part of the island up all these sandy roads. We almost collide with someone else in a jeep who is going the wrong way. We make it to this nice lake called Lake Mackenzie. An amazing spot of a white sand beach and a fresh water lake. The water in the lake is that green colour and its quite amazing.

Jumping into the water, it is very fresh but very nice at same time, many people are here as well.
We take many photos and swim around for a few hours. Then we dress up and have an amazing outdoor bbq lunch prepared by the outfitter guys. Lots of food to eat and bbq sausages, beer and wine as well.
Afterward we are off in the bus again to head to a rainforest area. We go for a hike of the area and shown many types of trees, plants and see many creeks full of very clear water, quite amazing. It is a bit of a short walk but still worthwhile the trip.

Then is back onto the bus and onto the next adventure.  We make it out to the coastal side and near the beach area. We are 4wd down the beach of the coast and into the waves. Quite the experience, we then stop for a bit to take in the sights. Here we have bit of an afternoon tea and beer for a while.

In the area we stopped there is a nice creek nearby and the waves from the ocean are crashing amazingly. Too rough to swim and do anything as you would be carried out to sea and tiger sharks are in these waters as well.
Then we continue to drive and end up on these ferries where the buses just drive onto them and are carried across to the mainland, quite neat.
On the mainland we are heading to the city of Noosa, we see several kangaroos on route.

Finally after a few hours we arrive at our hotel in Noosa. We are staying at some really nice apartments, our building has all the essentials to live in, including a balconey, very nice.

Tonight we head off into town to go for a big dinner at some restaurant/bar. An included dinner, on arrival at our table are 2 imposters who are pretending to be other Contiki and joining our trip. Ends up they were only in for the free champagne to which the one dude dropped on himself.
Overall it is a good dinner, I have a chicken something and beer, very good.
As furthermore tonight, people are doing more karoake again tonight, as I am not a big fan of that, I decide to call it an early night and head back to the apartment. Early to bed which is nice as I have not slept a long time yet for this trip at all. Stay tuned for next adventure.
