On our way to the sunshine coast we stopped in at Noosa for a stretch it perfect timing as the sun was on its way down, it was so beautiful on the water.

On our last day we decided to get up and watch the sunrise and venture away from the typical touristy spots and do a little exploring, we found an inland track that bypasssed two lakes and this was in the same direction we wereheading to get on our barge. We found Lake Birrabeen whoch was absolutely stunning and secluded, it is nestle amongst the bush. This was our favourite spot, just as beautiful as everywhere else but untouched an not populated which was very peaceful..

Day 4 we spent at Eli Creek and also visited the Maheno Shipwreck and the Rainbow Pinnacles. There is a dream time story behind the Pinnacles and also an old story about the shipwreck the kids loved hearing these and were so fascinated. Eli creek was a beautiful fresh water creek that joins onto the eastern beach it has a current and you float from one end to the other.

Day three we went for a bush walk to Lake Wabby, this was 2.3km one way through beautiful bush and opened up onto massive sand dunes it felt like we were in the desert, the lake wasnt as clear as the others we had visited but it was fresh water and so refreshing. There were little fish swimming around that suck on your feet. The kids loved it!!

Photos of our Campsite on Fraser, we loved our spot surrounded by beautiful trees and wild life. We had games of volley ball, played cards, told stories and had a camp fire with our new friends on the last night. Amarli especially love making sure she was covered head to toe in dirty sand daily.

On our 2nd day we drove up the eastern beach to Indian head and Champagne Pools. The name Champaigne Pools was given as the waves come in crash into the rocks creating a bubble like effect over the nature made rock pools. The water was crystal clear and there were fish swimming all around us so beautiful.

Oon our first day we spent the day at Lake Mckenzie, this fresh water lake was so beautiful the kids loved it there, they have strict rules on fraser we were not allowed to eat at the lake, and had to sit in an enclosed picnic area to be protected from dingoes. We didnt see any there but did see one on the eastern beach this was the only dingo we seen on our whole trip.
