"Travelling from Hong Kong, we have an unforgettable 3-day camping tour on Fraser island! Even though the weather is not great, but we are lucky enough to see pretty sceneries as well as some Australian wild animals, and tried lots of cool things as a city girl, including: + Getting on a 4WD to rolling around on the island + Walking through the rain forestand Indian head + Seeing a bunch of wild animals - sea turtles, dingo and whales + Swimming in lakes and pools - Lake Mackenzie, champagne pool and Eli Creek + Seeing the stars on the beach instead of those on the sky + and wild camping"
