2017/10/28 Oz Day 22: Fraser Island back to Toowoomba via Sunshine Coast
π 2017-10-28 01:01 in Australia, Flying, Ozsafari2017, Trips

After 21 days going around Australia, it was time to fly back to where we started: Toowoomba. We took a ferry back to mainland and Hervey Bay, got back to our planes, and went for a very scenic flight around Fraser Island, spotting wildlife from the air (Manta Rays, Turtles, and Whales).

After 37H of flying and 20 landings later, we got back "home" in Towoomba.
It was a great flying trip, kudos to Clare McEwan from airsafarisint for organizing it.
