EXPERIENCE FRASER ISLAND LANDSCAPES LIKE NOWHERE ELSE ON EARTH
I was lucky enough to visit Queensland’s incredible Fraser Island a couple of times over the course of my four-week stay in Hervey Bay. Group tours are generally not my thing and before arriving, I’d be searching for a different way to see the island…as well as an option that was going to be a bit more budget friendly (trips average at around $500).
It turned out that, thanks to a little luck and good timing, I actually got to see the island for free on a few occasions (I’ll be explaining exactly how that happened in “Fraser Island for Free: Is it possible?” – finishing with a three-day, two-night group adventure tour. Despite the trip very much confirming that I am not a group travel person (sharing a tent with couples who are either breaking up, or making up, is seriously annoying and massively awkward at breakfast the next morning!), I am incredibly grateful to have spent more time exploring this beautiful island.
