GUEST BLOGGERS: Caz and Craig Makepeace aren’t your ordinary married couple. They come from the Central Coast of Australia, but thanks to their nomadic nature, now call the world home. These serial travel addicts have lived in 5 countries and travelled to more than 52 countries.
We first stumbled across them online with their YTravelBlog, Pinterest and Facebook pages and quickly became fans… so you can imagine our delight when the Makepeaces found themselves on the Fraser Coast and we were able to invite them and their two gorgeous daughters across to explore the world’s largest sand island.
From humble beginnings, YTravelBlog has grown to be one of the world’s leading travel blog sites and Caz, Craig and their girls have millions of global followers – across a range of social platforms. We hope you enjoy their Fraser Island adventures with us as much as we did hosting.
When you think of exploring Fraser Island in Queensland, the world’s largest sand island, you’re mostly thinking adventure off-road 4-wheel driving and a bit of beach camping with wild dingoes – the ultimate adventure.
I was a little bummed we didn’t have the high-clearance 4WD vehicle needed to do it. Driving around Fraser was high on the bucket list of things we wanted to do on our year-long road trip around Australia.
But my disappointment vanished quickly when I arrived at my alternative. Kingfisher Bay Resort on Fraser Island – It’s on the quieter western side of Fraser, right where the car ferry from River Head drops you off ($50 return adult $25 child for passengers).
