I should put a disclaimer here that I borrowed this photo of the dingo from a friend who had a great camera with an awesome zoom lens. This dingo strolled down the beach of Lake McKenzie, past people everywhere, while adults nervously eyed where their children were and everyone else rushed for cameras.

We set off for Lake McKenzie our second full day, and our first day as a full group with all friends there. Our first stop on the way was Central Station. This is one of my favourite places on the island, mostly because the way it smells brings back such happy memories of shaded days… Continue reading Fraser Island: Central Station
