Fraser Island 2

The second part of this guide/review will take us and you up north to the central area of Fraser where we found more freaky nature stuff and had a great time.

V druhem clanku o Fraseru se s nami podivate na sever do centralni casti ostrova, kde sme nalezli dalsi prirodni zajimavosti a hlavne sme si to zase poradne uzivali.



For those of you who don’t know us here’s a little bit about us: we love walking. And not so surprisingly Fraser was no difference – there are lot of interesting trails along the island. Most of them are really worth it and so here goes our advice: walk any of them that suit your current fitness and time possibilities 🙂

01

Lake Wabby
Yet another freak of nature! You remember those 2 lakes from the first article? Lake Boomanjin was red-orange and Lake McKenzie was crystal blue. Enter Lake Wabby aka Mr. Green 🙂 How awesome is that? There are several lakes on Fraser with each one with significantly different colour.

Entrance to Lake Wabby – damn impressive if you ask me 🙂

Visiting Lake Wabby is a must but do so in early morning and you will have the awesome quiet swim just for yourself. If the place gets crowded you can go for the lookout walk (1.5km from the lake). It’s a bit steep trail but well worth it and it’s quite shaded so you can really go for it when the sun is up and Wabby is overrun with people.

Dingoes at Fraser
Dingoes are native dogs of Australia and there are many different species of them across the whole continent. Fraser’s dingoes are quite unique and there’s a big pressure for keeping their population and way of life intact and with as little influence of people as possible. Dingoes are not for playing/feeding/playing fetch or anything else. Be paranoid about storing your food as those buggers have learned to open regular food containers!
All that said above: they are still cute 🙂 We have seen only few of them and it was just part of the whole Fraser experience.

Maheno wreck
This is an easy one as you will hit the Maheno wreck just by driving along the coast. It’s much bigger than we anticipated and it’s really formidable. You can still see a lot of details and many progressions of the decay of wood and metal. And yeah, it’s a real must-to-do to take a picture of your fourby with the wreck 🙂 Maheno wreck can be visited during any time of the day but it’s better to be there during low tide and with some good (interesting) lightning conditions.

01

Champagne pools
Quite famous tourist attraction which we didn’t find that awesome. It’s pretty much 2 small pools with still sea water. And it’s full of people most of the day. We are not “people-phobic” or anything like that but having a swim in McKenzie was way better than Champagne pools. It’s along the coast so you can pop in along the way and see if you like them. It was way too crowded for us so we went for the walk from Champagne to Indian head which was awesome! It takes you through 2 beaches which you will have most probably just for yourself and once you get to Indian head the views are ridiculously breathtaking. Go for it!

Fraser Island and the small details – you just gotta look around 🙂

Luck or not?
So yea, we’re driving on the beach again, windows still down and music blastin’ 🙂 And I say to myself: “I gotta be the luckiest guy out there!”. But then I realize that this has nothing to do with luck actually. I am here having this great time because I want to. I made a choice to come here and it has nothing to do with luck. We didn’t win any lottery or inherit fortune. We washed shitloads of dishes to be here 🙂

It all comes down to the simplest choice. Some people spent all their money on booze, some just go and buy every single model of iPhone that comes out. We have some old shitty phones but we had an awesome time at Fraser. There’s a lot of people who envy us what we do and the places that we visit but in the end it’s their choice and it’s ours, right?

Take this with a grain of salt and not so seriously 🙂 But if you want to travel, do so by any means. When you get old you will not regret not having all iPhones but you will definitely regret that you didn’t go out there and explore the crap out of every single piece of world 🙂

V prvnim clanku sme si pripomeli, ze s Radou moc radi chodime a na Fraseru se fakt da v tomhle ohledu vyradit. Muzete si vybrat podle svych casovych a fitness moznosti. Nema cenu se tahat na 10km turu, kdyz vas to nebavi a mnohem vetsi pozitek mate z kratke prochazky. Takze nechodit za kazdou cenu, ale dokud vas to bavi, ok ? 🙂 Vsichni urcite znate ten pocit, kdy se vam proste nechce ven, ale kdyz uz se dokopete, jdete se projit, vratite se a mate ten fajn pocit. Klasika, ktera funguje u vetsiny lidi 🙂

Lake Wabby
V prvnim clanku sme si povidali o dvou dosti unikatnich jezerech, ale ze by mel Fraser jeste dalsi mokra esa v rukavu? Si piste, ze jooo. Prvni jezero co sme videli bylo Boomanjin (nebo jak se to pise, kdo si to ma porad pamatovat tydlety nazvy…) a to bylo cerveno oranzove. Dalsi louze bylo McKenzie, ktere bylo pro zmenu kycovite modro tyrkysove, uplne jak z plakatu. Kdyz pominem ruzne extremisticke barvy tak nam zustava na rade treba zelena, hm? No a Lake Wabby je fakt zelene. Nejedna se o nejake malicherne odstiny, ktere by maximalne lakaly turisty na photoshopovy letak – tady se fakt jede na poctivou zelenou. Ne tu brcalovou jako z Cech ale tu zelenou, ve ktery si jeste muzete zaplavat bez pocitu, ze budete potom jak hipik nebo tak 🙂

Pristupova cesta k Wabbymu – pecka!

Lake Wabby se navic nachazi u sandblow, ktera byla prvni kterou sme vubec videli takze docela sok. O sandblows sme si uz povidali v jednom z predchozich clanku tak muzete nastudovat a dneska mame jen par fotek dole v galerce – poznate je jednoduse, protoze tam hlavni roli hraje mrte pisku 🙂

Dingove na Fraseru
Dingo je celkem roztomilej hafik, ktereho muzete potkat na Fraseru. Roztomilej je teda presne do toho momentu, nez vam vleze do krabice s jidlem (coz umi), zacne vam trhat stan, ve kterym spite a nebo na vas zacne na ferovku utocit (bud mate nejakou luxusni slaninu a nebo mu proste lezete do reviru). Dingove sou dulezitou soucasti celeho zazitku z Fraseru, je super si je vyfotit ale jinak je opravdu nechte na pokoji a pozorujte ze vzdalenosti. My sme nastesti pouze videli par hafiku a vsem tem negativnim zkusenostem sme se vyhli, ale je dulezite dal varovat.

Maheno Wreck
Kdyz mate dost prirodnich pamatek tak si muzete behem cesty podel plaze prohlidnout celkem dost stary vrak lode Maheno. Lod uz je ve slusnem stadiu rozkladu, ale na nekterych mistech jsou porad videt ruzne detaily a je to fakt dechberouci vylet do minulosti. A samozrejme je tady povinnost pro kazdeho majitele ctyrkolky se poradne vyfotit se svym terenakem u vraku. Muzeme odskrtnout a jet dal. Maheno nas rozhodne na hodinu sebralo a ani na chvili nepustilo. Paradni a zcela odlisny zazitek!

01

Champagne Pools
Jednou z hlavnich atrakci jsou Champagne pools, coz jsou male prirodni skalni bazenky z morske vody. Samotny napad je skvely, priroda to dobre udelala jenze oni ty jezirka sou vetsinu dne plne turistu a fakt to neni ono. Mame mnohem radeji samotu (popripade nahotu :)) a klid. Champagne pools bohuzel byly plne a tak sme se aspon vydali na prochazku, kde sme nasli dve krasne prazdne plaze a nakonec vylezli na vyhlidku. Champagne pools tedy brzo rano a jinak spise ne 🙁

Fraser Island je o malych detailech, ktere musite postupne objevovat kolem sebe a vnimat je

Stesti a nebo ne?
Kdyz sme si takhle zase jeli po plazi, okynka dole, hudba na plny koule tak si sam pro sebe rikam: “Jsem asi ten nejstastnejsi typek na svete”. Jenze mi vzapeti dochazi, ze tomu tak vlastne vubec neni. V posledni dobe se nam dostalo par zavistivych komentaru coz nas docela mrzi tak bych jen chteli nastinit co a jak 🙂

Kdyz se nad tim opravdu zamyslite tak to neni vubec o stesti, neni co zavidet, my sme nevyhrali loterii a ani nezdedili bohatstvi. Museli sme zatracene dlouhou dobu mejt spinavy nadobi a drit. Je to cele opravdu o volbe. My sme na Fraseru protoze tu chcem byt a zvolili sme si to. Nikdo nas nenutil, proste sme si to vybrali. Nekdo svoje penize doslova prochlasta a je spousta lidi co musi vlastnit kazdy novy model iPhonu apod. My mame stare klavesovy telefony a za cenu jednoho noveho telefonu sme si proste udelali vylet na Fraser Island.
Na smrtelny posteli asi nebudete litovat, ze ste si nekoupili kazdy model iPhonu ale spise ze jste vice necestovali.
Takze je to jasny, jo? Prestante si stezovat, ze nemate cas/penize/odvahu/dostatecne dlouhe vlasy a nebo jine nesmyslne vymluvy. Nesedte doma na zadku, zvednete se a mazejte ven objevovat!

    První foto v článku, jasná bajková traila :). Velmi povedené.

    Přesně tak, na závistivý komenty kašlat. A už vůbec není důvod komukoliv cokoliv vysvětlovat nebo obhajovat.

    Mějte se fajn.
