Hello and Welcome
May we introduce ourselves as Rusty & Ursula Boston. We have the dream lifestyle of having a home in the remote community of Orchid Beach on beautiful Fraser Island.
We have been fortunate enough to be living this dream since 1999. Although we have moved around a few times for short periods and travelled far and wide we always find ourselves returning back to our home.
We are lucky enough to be able to home school our girls to indulge in our dream lifestyle. No school here, only the school of life.
As of 2020 our oldest daughter is completing her PHD at University in Cairns and our youngest is now in her final year of senior studies.
With our combined knowledge and experience of the island we will give you an insight into all things about Fraser.
Rusty is a mad fisherman and totally loves the water. So all the articles relating to these subject will most likely be written by him.
I, Ursula just embrace the daily life of living on the island and enjoy the view.
Lotus is passionate about photography and the wildlife that the island has to offer. She can be credited for 90% of the images and photos on our website. The pics of the Dingo’s are her favourites.
So everything from planning your visit, accommodation reviews, what to see & do, beach driving, where to fish, tide times, barge bookings and Fraser dangers are written and researched by us as a family.
Should there be any other source we endeavour to give credit where it is due.
We will be updating the site regularly with new feature articles, photos and videos as well as answering some of your concerns and questions.
We invite you to come and visit this amazing island and experience for yourself all the beauty and excitement it has to offer.
Remember planning & preparation makes for a pleasant stay.
