337--Australia: Off-Roading on Fraser Island
@ CherieSpotting     Jan 09 2006 - 10:56 PST
cherie writes: Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world. There's not just sand on this sand-island. There are lakes, rivers, and rainforests. You can't swim in the sea (unless you'd like to be a snack for a tiger shark) but you can jump in one of the many fresh water lakes! It's a place where all the roads are sand and people often arrive to their offices via airplanes.

Here are the photos of our 4x4 Jeep adventure where we came across wild dingoes, and spiders the size of your face.
