While snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef was incredible, I'm mostly glad that I lived to tell the tale.

Fraser Island is filled with adventure. From hiking through rainforests and sand dunes to blasting through mud in a 4x4 to keeping an eye out for dingoes to mysterious shipwrecks, this island will have your adrenaline level on high. Our two days on the island left us craving more.
