3 days, 3 nights
(1 day, 1 night before Fraser Island)
As we hadn't seen sun for a few days, and didn't have the best sleep on the coach, we spent the day on yet another stunning beech and chilled for the rest of the day.
Stayed: Dingos - their Fraser Island tours are highly recommended which is why we stayed here.

DAY SEVENTEEN to NINETEEN
Another epic part of the holiday - Fraser Island!! We spent 3 days and 2 nights on Fraser Island, camping within the forest. We all drove jeeps around the island which was an insane experience. You could do this on your own but I recommend you book through a company as they know all the hotspots and you can just enjoy driving a jeep on the sand rather than worrying where to go! We went to Lake Wabby, sand dunes, Eli Creek (lazy river), champagne pools, visited Maheno Shipwreck and Lake Mckenzie. All stunning.
The camping ground was such fun - cooking facilities were fab, tents weren't the most comfortable (no pillows provided and a pretty hard surface!). Make sure you go to the beach at night to see the stars - one of the most surreal, amazing things I've ever seen. Dingos live here, so make sure you take your dingo bat with you during the night and walk in more than a group of 2 - and no children on their own!
Before leaving Rainbow Beach, we got up early to feed wild dolphins. Such gorgeous mammals. Next stop.. Noosa.
Travel: Rainbow Beach to Noosa - 2 hours 45 minutes.
