RON MOON leads our convoy off the mainland of Queensland to spend a few days exploring the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island.
This gem off the coast of south-east Queensland is a haven for four-wheel-drive adventurers, fishers and tourists from around the globe, and it’s a must-see for anyone who loves a bit of beach driving and the sea breeze.
In this episode we trek along the eastern beach and venture inland to the rainforests at Central Station; Ron tries stand-up paddle boarding on the spectacular Lake McKenzie; and we criss-cross the island as we tour to its northernmost and most secluded section.
We run into a familiar faces on our travels, grab a meet pie at the famous bakery at Eurong Station, and learn a thing or two from a history lesson with Ron.
It’s always important to keep an eye on the tide on Fraser – or on any beach – and to stick to the speed limits. Also watch out for folks and dingoes wandering about. Most of the tracks are one-lane, so don’t fang along recklessly and always be courteous to other drivers.
4x4 Adventure Series: South-East Queensland part 2
We sample a taste of the many adventures to be had on Fraser Island, before we stop at the beautiful Kingfisher Bay Resort to wash the sand off, enjoy a cocktail and bid the island farewell.
Fraser Island is a place we keep coming back to, and we’re pretty sure this won’t be our last visit.
