Two Days on Fraser Island, the World’s Largest Sand Island

Our Four-Day Itinerary to Tropical North Queensland

The last time I set foot in Tropical North Queensland, I was twenty-three, a backpacker and I had barely any money with me. I stayed at hostels out of necessity, and eating out in restaurants was definitely not something I could afford.

We were definitely overdue for another visit so we decided to spend four nights at...

A Day Trip to Moreton Island

We booked an organised day trip with the Scenic Day Tour Group. Moreton Island is about sixty kilometres north-east of Brisbane. It is a popular day tour from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. A bus picked us up...
