Amazing Fraser Island

Trailblazer Tours Fraser Islandtrailblazer toursfraser island3 day safari

Fraser Island is one of Australia’s most precious natural destinations. This carefully protected World Heritage site is the world’s largest sand island with over 100 fresh water lakes, uninterrupted beaches, ancient rainforests, and fascinating flora and fauna.

The best way to really experience Fraser Island is to stay over night. I was lucky enough to join the 2 day 1 night trip over to ‘The Island’. This trip has been specially designed for Global Village students to enjoy the natural beauty of Fraser Island without having to miss any classes. Of course the 3 day tour is also available for students to enjoy that extra night.

To get to Fraser Island Trailblazer’s does a pick up from Noosa in the trusty 4WD Troupie followed by a trip on the Manta Ray barge. If your lucky like me you can see dolphins swimming alongside the barge.

The first stop is Basecamp, otherwise known as luxury camping. Tent style accommodation but with a proper bathroom and roof over your head! All food is provided so there is no need to use the communal kitchen.

The first attraction was Lake Wabby, the emerald lake. A quick drive up the beach and a short walk through the sand dunes brings you to this beautiful fresh water lake. A swim here is a must! Further along the beach is the Maheno Shipwreck, a very interesting story and The Pinnacles, often called the rainbow sands.

Saturday night  a visit to The Beach Hotel is a must, make sure you bring a pen as you can leave a message on the pub walls! Just dont walk back to basecamp alone…i had my first snake encounter!

Day two is an early start with a beautiful rainforest walk, here you can see the biggest tree on the island. It took 7 people to get around it. We then had a swim at Lake Birrabeen, the whitest sand and clearest water you will see!

The drive back to Noosa was along the beach of the North Shore, a perfect way to end the trip. From the dingoes to the white sand everything about Fraser Island is facinating and beautiful. The trailblazers team ensure your trip is an unforgetable one. If you are interested in doing a Fraser trip discount cards are available, further discounts apply if you book as a group of 4, so get some friends together so you dont miss out on the Fraser Island experience.

Cheers,

Maddy

“Bush Tucker” Delights For Some Elementary Students

On Tuesday some lucky Elementary students attended a Bush Tucker demonstration by renowned indigenous chef Dale Chapman.  Taste testing was a part of the demonstration and on the menu was Emu kabana, Bush Tomato dip, Lili Pili jam, Wild Mint and Bush Tomato cheeses, Lemon Myrtle tea and everyone’s favourite Davidson’s Plum jam drops. Those who attended filled in worksheets and took lots of notes to bring back to the classroom. Students then presented what they had learnt to fellow class mates.
