With the security briefing behind them, they were ready to hit the beach highway. Both Tom Daley and bis BFF Sophie took turns behind the wheel as our very own Mark showed them the sights of Fraser Island. For the two globetrotters, it was another day in paradise… but come nightfall, the two adventurers learned what living like a backpacker really means.

The city slickers had to fend for themselves pitching a tent at camp Drop Bear. Hilarity ensued, but we are pleased to report that they managed to set up their temporary abode and thoroughly enjoyed camping under the stars, Fraser Island style, like so many British backpackers before them.

We were delighted that Tom and Sophie chose to visit Fraser Island as part of their trip around the world and thoroughly enjoyed their company. Hopefully they’ll be back one day – there will always be a friendly Drop Bear welcome awaiting them :)

The Australian episode of Tom Daley Goes Global aired on itv and is viewable online until the end of May 2014.
