It has been some days since I posted the previous part of our tour:

However, it should not be anything but a financial problem to stay at Kingfisher Resort for a longer time.

This is how it looks from the sea.

On this morning we had booked a 4WD tour across the island.

It looks like a road, but in fact it is more a soft beach inside a forest. It was impossible to make a realistic photo while driving.

Took us more than 1 hour for the 19 km ride across Fraser Island.

The Pacific awaits.

75 mile beach, with slightly high tide in AUv2.

And, as foreseen in OZx, ...

... the solid beach can also be used by other mobility toys.

A short ride further north the wreck of S.S. Maheno can be seen.

And nearby some of the famous Fraser dingoes. They are the genetically most pure dingoes on this planet, as they did never mix with dogs, like they do on the mainland.

Returning from the beach via Eurong...

... towards Central Station...

... and Wanggoolba Creek. The water is so clear, you can´t even see it in real life.

A few more kilometers back comes Lake McKenzie.

A perched freshwater lake.

Quite refreshing after the long 4WD ride!

And, precisely shown as ever, we follow the bush track "home" to Kingfisher Resort.

Great comparison shots, Gerold.
I like the 4WD bush tracks.
Looks like a lot of fun.
I drove mostly 4WD cars until today.


Cheers

On this island a 4WD is not only in its element, it is mandatory. Those parents driving their children to school in a 4WD are something different...

Fantastic Gerold!  How deep was that creek where you couldn't see the water?

Fantastic even in real the island was. The creek must have been around 30-50 cm - difficult to say. The water is all rain water filtered by the sands of the island.

That must have been a fun trip Gerold, very interesting place to say the least.  Great job with the shots both sim and real, I like That ship wreck! :)

It was fun, indeed. Though some of the ladies in the car commented "all my organs have been rearranged" after that ride.

A very enjoyable tour Gerold.

A great place to visit but watch out for those planes on the beach.

Thank you Martyn. Signing is extensive there, and only two planes in use. So it is not too hard to keep an eye on them.
