Fraser Island and Agnes Water


A little update from Fraser Island. We went on a tour with about 20 other people including a guide and 3 4WD. Fraser Island is the biggest sand island and also one of very few places in the world where the rain forest grows on sand, you found some of the cleanest and clearest lakes in the world on Fraser Island, you can drink the water from the lakes there and the rivers. They also have the most pure breed Dingos in Australia on Fraser Island.

The first day we went two different lakes, Lake Birrabeen and lake Boomanjin.

Lake Birrabeen Lake Boomanjin

As you can see it's different color on the lakes.

The red color comes from the tea trees around Lake Boomanjin.

After visiting the lakes we stopped for a short walk in the rain forest.

You see so many funny shapes on the trees in the rain forest. the one to the left is another tree growing around the tree on the inside and it will slowly kill the tree on the inside because it drinks the nutrition from that tree.

After that we went to the camp. It was already tent set up, we slept 3-4 people in each tent and we had a table set up, bbq, and cocking stove to cock our dinner and around the camp it was electric fence to keep the Dingos out from the camp. It was getting really cold in the evening, the sky was so clear and the stars was amazing. I have never seen a sky so clear with so many stars on before,. It was amazing! We stayed up to midnight chatting to new people about traveling and life. My night sleep that night wasn't very good. I was still dragging around on a bad cold and i woke up during the night few times.The next morning me and Jakob was up before 6 am to watch the sunrise at 75 mile beach right next to the camp that was really cool, so beautiful.

Our first stop on the second day was Eli Creek. Eli creek pours up to four million liters of fresh water into the ocean every hour and you can walk up the creek and float back down. We did that. and of course the water is very clean and you can drink it,

After lunch time we went to Indian head look out and champagne pools. The Champagne pools got the name from the rock pools where the waves washes in and the water foams and bubbles around you. At the Indian head look out you sometimes can spot whales, dolphins and sharks. we only saw one whale from far away and one sting ray. So it wasn't very exciting.
