Thought i would post up my trip of fraser island. Pretty much just a cut and paste from offroadsubarus.com so apologies to those that visit both.

Went to Fraser island over christmas. Took a few photos, but not very many, and unfortunately none of the Forester in action as the missus hates taking photos and vids Was a good week, we did around 550km on the island during the week, and around 250km worth of inland tracks and 'minor tracks' (infrequently used). Never got stuck during and week and had a ball.

Heres the few photos that were taken.

There were some quite rutted out tracks and climbs up hills over roots that we had to do, however no photographic evidence. My brother in the Navara didnt think i would it a few times along the journey, but never had a problem. Definitely thankful i put the lift in and detached the rear sway bar before i went. Made all the difference.

And the beast...

The spider isnt very poisonous, just very large. Thats the biggest one of that sort that ive seen.
The rims are just the factory 16" with 215/65/16 Yokohama AT/s tyres on them. Awesome tyres, recommend them alot. They are yet to let me down in the sand.
Glad you enjoyed the pics. Its a shame they cant capture just how beautiful the place is to be there. Ill be going back next year as well to try and see the rest of it, 7 nights just wasn't enough.

Ha ha, yeah, my campsite was about 800m south of the Maheno, you could see it from the camp. Didn't take a pic cause it was there the whole time, ha ha.

In fact, you can just see it on the beach in this photo taken from our camp:



Yeah, some people think foresters share the similar lack of ability of crv's and other soft roaders. However, anyone i've talked to thats owned a subaru always comments on how capable they are :)
