I took my Troll out to Fraser Island this Christmas (DEC 2021) Inskip Manta-Ray ferry boarding queue, at 5:22 am. (It was a bloody long drive from Sydney).

75mile beach at sunrise - it was magic - and a nice shot came out of it :D (Still at 20PSI here)

I got bogged at N'gala rocks; Came in with 20psi, and then after spending good 30 minutes trying to get out of other people's way I went down to 12 - and then just idled out of there grandpa style.

So many different sceneries are there to be seen on the island.

Lessons learned:
Lower your tire pressure when on the sand down to 12psi.
I absolutely LOVE sand driving.
Fraser Island is my number one favourite place in the whole world.
Those little f***ers are called sandfly, or a midge.

One of the best spots in the world. Looks like you had a great time!

Yes the midgies are a speciality, you develop a resistance to them over time (so the bites stop itching sooner).
at least the sand wasn’t too dry, that can make driving much harder. I did that drive last year and that wasn’t much fun. At least you get here in a hurry.
