Fraser Island Four Wheel Bus Tour


Fraser Island is a sand island and is a World Heritage-listed island. So the island is full of sandy roads, and we, like our tour group, have to take this kind of four-wheel drive bus to go to different scenic spots. And it’s very wobbly, so be sure to fasten your seat belt the entire time. If you have children, you must bring your own car seat.

During the Christmas period, I went to Fraser Island. But we chose to live in Hervey bay and just joined the one-day tour of Fraser Island. Because the island is full of mountain roads and dirt roads, not paved roads, you must drive a four-wheel drive, and I think it is safer to go with a tour group. Secondly, the choice of accommodation and restaurants on the island is very limited, and three meals a day should be done in the hotel where you live. In Hervey bay, you can choose high-end and mid-level hotels, or backpacker hostels. Food is also available, if you want to be more economical, you can choose McDonald’s and KFC

Big Pineapple Sunshine Coast

Australia likes to build some giant fruit landmarks, such as big mangoes, big bananas, and big pineapples. I recently traveled through the Sunshine coast, where there is also a big pineapple. It has decades of history, and many travel books have introduced it. More than ten years ago, if any friends came to visit us, we would take them to this big Pineapple. There is also a pineapple farm and a small train, as I remember.

But this time I went there and found that it was closed, and the pineapple farm and the small train were gone. Some signages said there will be some redevelopment plans. Fortunately, that giant Pineapple is still there. In fact, it is not too sad to see everything closed. I also entered the interior of Big Pineapple more than ten years ago, but there are some exhibition boards that introduce the history of the juice brand. It’s just a two or three stories high man-made fiberglass big pineapple. Taking a few photos outside is enough. If you pass by here, you can take a few pictures and spend more than 10 minutes.

Of course, there are also other scenic spots, such as a tree top Adventure Park, and a small zoo. Of course, we have to pay for it, but we didn’t enter it either.
We ended up spending ten minutes there taking a few photos and leaving.

Stop over
The last time I drove to Hervey Bay, it was almost four hours of driving. For such a long-distance vehicle, it is very important to take a break halfway, and lack of concentration will affect driving safety. So, I took a break every hour and a half. There are rest spots like this on the side of the main highway. There are gas stations, fast food restaurants, and even slides for children to play. You can take a break there, eat something like a pie or a sandwich, and drink coffee.

Sunshine Plaza

Although the Sunshine coast is not as commercialized as the gold coast, Sunshine coast is a tourist area, and there are also some high-end residential areas, so there are large shopping malls. Sunshine Plaza is the largest in this area, it is comparable to the Pacific fair. Also myer and David, two big department stores, and there is h&m. Also, it’s comfortable to walk around, I think that is because the expansion was completed in 2019, so I think it’s new. On the day of the visit, I had a stop over during the trip to Hervey Bay, there will be aerial acrobatics.

Clean up for my garden

Garden Clean up
Minor projects needed to be done in the garden before, so the workers removed some small trees before they started the work. In fact, it took half an hour every week for 6 months, I was trying to clean them out, but there was little progress. Finally, the workers used a soil piler for half an hour, and even the roots were completely removed. There is something that need to be done by professional labor. Without them, even if the miscellaneous trees are cleared away, they will regenerate, and the roots must always be cleared away, or the tree will be killed with poison.
