We had an amazing time on both Fraser and Lady Elliot Island. The Sunrover staff organised everything for us and we really had nothing to worry about which made the trip truly enjoyable for us as we've only had a few days and soooo many things to see.
Highlights of Fraser Island were Lake McKenzie, the Campagne Pools and the Indian Head viewing platform. We also really enjoyed driving in the 4WD along the 75 Mile beach - what an adventure. The only negative thing I have to mention is the state of the camp site (kitchen facilities and camping equipment). The tents and equipment are really old, smelly and quite dirty. If I went there again, I wouldn't do anything different but brining my own camping gear. ;)
Special "thank you" to our tour guide Wayne, who passionately guided us around the best spots of the Island passing on all his insider knowledge about local animals, aboriginal heritage and the stunning nature in general. He went above and beyond in order to make everyone in the group happy and comfortable. He drove me and my sister very early in the morning all across the Island to Kingfisher so we could take our ferry and start our Lady Elliot trip. He then picked us up the next day at Hervey Bay airport to drive us all the way back to Brisbane (5 h drive). @Wayne, thanks again for looking so well after us!!!! P.S. You're also a very good cook ;)
I highly recommend visiting Lady Elliot Island especially for divers or those who love snorkelling. I already dived quite a lot in the Great Barrier Reef in different places but Lady Elliot is very special. This time I could only do snorkelling as we were flying again the next day but NO REGRETS!!! Just snorkelling I've seen much more sea life than in may other places I scuba dived before. From all kind of sea turtles (from little green turtles to swim with to 1m big Loggerhead), reef sharks, octopus, clownfish, parrotfish, barracuda, eel and all kind of beautiful coral. Unfortunately we didn't see the Manta Rays as it wasn't the season but next time ;) The Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort is fantastic. It's a private Island and only a number of people can stay there. You really feel special when you arrive in the little plane on the island and receive that lovely welcome from the staff members. The food buffet is amazing and the cabins are in an excellent state. Everything on the Island can be done in walking distance and it feels like you're lost in paradise just you and the beautiful sea life. I absolutely loved staying there and will surely come back one day!!!!
