Fraser Island Beach Drive

My mom came to visit for 10 days in May. It was great to have her here and one of the most enjoyable things we did was a tour of Fraser Island. Melissa has written on Fraser Island in a previous post.


We saw three wild dingos on the drive and during a walk of the park we saw a carpet python sitting on a log. Pretty neat.

Our tour included a stop at the amazing Lake Mackenzie.

The drive along the beach through Noosa National Park is amazing. It’s a designated roadway, so it’s one of the few places you’ll find speed limit signs posted along an open beach. A towing company has a wall of shame in their office showing dozens of wrecks that got submerged after the tide rolled in on them. Thankfully we pulled through just fine.
