Team Lipstick got some good advice from Andre’s cousin so today they headed off with a first stop at Noosa.


Noosa is an Australian resort area on southern Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Known for its heavy surf, Sunshine Beach is backed by cafes and boutiques. A coastal trail runs north past the beaches of Noosa National Park, home to koalas around Tea Tree Bay.




Noosa is a real holiday town with lots of shops and restaurants and long beach’s true to the area’s name “Sunshine Coast”


Having looked at all the beaches and strolling through the town Team Lipstick headed off to visit Fraser island.


Fraser Island, off Australia’s eastern Queensland coast, is the world’s largest sand island, stretching over 120km. Panoramic viewpoints include Indian Head, a rocky outcrop on the island’s easternmost tip, and the Cathedrals, a cliff famous for sculpted ribbons of coloured sand. It’s a camping and ecotourism destination, with beaches and swimming sites at Lake McKenzie, Lake Wabby and other freshwater pools.


They would use a ferry from Inskipo on River Island and then drive along the beach on the eastern side of the island before crossing through the middle to reach the ferry which would take them to River heads in the north west


Starting at Inskipo on River Island


To prepare for the beach ride Andre reduces the tyre pressure to 180 PSI and Lipstick gets of the ferry on Fraser island


Driving along the beach for some 35km was a real highlight today and the drive across the island put Lipstick’s off-road capabilities to the test…


Off Road again
