Team,

I just came back from a week at Teewah beach and like always it's a magical spot. Most days we headed over to rainbow side and just stayed put in one spot. I noticed that the general camping areas are allot cleaner than what I am used to seeing. I guess the permit system keeps some of the bad ones out now.

I do have a question for the animal experts out there can someone please identify these tracks for me. They are not normal dog since they are not allowed up there and it happened in the middle of the night just after the high tide and they were nice and fresh in the morning when I saw them.

Possibly fox tracks?
We had a fox (or foxes) come into our camp each night on North Stradbroke recently. First night did not expect anything and had some rubbish lying around - fox went through that, stole a sandal (found it, very lucky), took some ropes out of a box etc - some weird stuff. 2nd night we saw him at about 8pm and confirmed it was a fox not a wild dog or dingo.

Hi Troll,

There are dingoes in the Cooloola section of the park, not in the numbers on Fraser, but they are there nevertheless.

That is not to say that your tracks were not a fox or a wild domestic dog.

Cheers
Allan

Hi Allan,

I have always had a slight suspicion that they will be there since Fraser is only a stone throw away.

Well, the Fraser dingoes are isolated resulting in them being the purest in the country as there has been little opportunity for breeding with domestic dogs. But there are dingoes all over the place in Queensland, more-so of course in forests and parks where they are not controlled by farmers.

Cheers

Hi Troll 81. What are the beach access points at Noosa North and Freshwater like? I have heard reports that the sand is very soft and boggy.
Cheers,
Kevin

Kevin,

The cutting to get onto the beach from Noosa was nice and hard, due to the full moon high tides. Freshwater track was soft but with lower tyre pressures you will be fine. I towed my camper through there without any problems.

Muddlo rocks was passable 3 hours each side of the tides. You could also get right up into the point at Rainbow even close to high tide.

They are wild dog footprints the same as dingos are. The rangers track the dogs by those footprints, as last time we were camped there about 2 months back, the ranger took interest in the same footprints we had as you have photographed at our campsite.

hi,
glad you liked the beach trip- We are one of the ferry owners and have just had 9 days up the beach also. It is also magic for us. Yes there are plenty of foxes and dingoes right up to the Noosa river mouth.try coming up during the week - you will have the place to yourselves.
regards to all
