This is why you don't drive on the beach at high tide

VISITORS to Fraser Island have been urged to plan trips around the high tide, after the ocean claimed another vehicle yesterday.

A black Range Rover was driving along the beach yesterday near high tide when it became bogged, and was soon upended by the waves and sunk into the sand.

Once the tide abated a tow truck and tractor were called in to right the vehicle, which had been filled with water and sand, as a crowd of onlookers gathered in the dunes.

It was then loaded onto the truck to be taken from the shore.

The recovery video was posted to the Fifty Shades of Fraser Island Facebook page yesterday afternoon, while the photos soon appeared on I Got Bogged at Inskip Point.
