Lost and found: two tourists on island

TWO British tourists got into a spot of bother when they lost their map and compass on Fraser Island on Tuesday.

The pair arrived on the western side of the island on Monday and walked from Kingfisher Bay Resort to Lake McKenzie, where they set up camp. They contacted a friend late Tuesday to say they had become lost.

Police had begun to make plans for a search and rescue mission yesterday, but the two disorientated tourists arrived safely back at Kingfisher about 10.30am. They had not suffered any injuries.
