Day 3: Wednesday 5 September 2018 - Whale Watching Cruise & Bush Tucker

The coastal waters surrounding Fraser Island is a playground for the magnificent Humpback whales as they pass through on their way to their breeding grounds between August and October. They pause here to take some time out, in the pristine waters and to socialise, have some fun, learn some essential life skills. On today's coastal Whale Watching Cruise the captain will instruct passengers to wave their arms, stamp their feet and make a bit of noise - the whales love it and their natural curiosity takes over. Often these giants of the sea will glide up to the boats to have a look at what the 'silly' humans are doing - in return the Humpbacks put on an almighty show - slapping their tails, shaking their fins and leaping into the air, only to splash back down. Return to Kingfisher Bay Resort for a little free time and some lunch. Later this afternoon enjoy a Bush Tucker and Tasting Tour. Experience the tastes of Australia in the resort restaurant and discover the delights of our native bush tucker over a drop of Australian wine. Rangers present a selection of foods in their natural, raw state and explain where you can find these foods. Australia's natural bush foods are becoming increasingly popular in modern cooking. Find out how these foods can be used to enhance many dishes as a qualified Chef demonstrates how to prepare and use them.  Meals: BD
