Description

The ferry ride to Fraser Island, across the Great Sandy Strait, is around 50 minutes. Your Ranger Guide will meet you at the resort’s jetty, and after the group introductions and a quick briefing, your 4WD adventure on Fraser begins!

Your guide is a local, who is passionate about Fraser Island, and will not only take you to the island’s most incredible spots, but also “WOW” you with fascinating facts (as much or as little as you’d like) about the island’s history, fauna and flora. They’ll also keep an eye out for dingoes and other interesting wildlife and are happy to stop for photos when they spot things! Your guide stays with you for the entire tour and promises to give you a fun time or he’ll eat his hat!

Day 1 – 4WD Tour

Today we check out some of Fraser’s coolest, sub-tropical inland sights. First stop is beautiful basin lake, get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles, in this delightful perched dune lake! Central Station, no trains or whistles here just peaceful, ancient rainforest and the reminders of a former, once bustling logging camp. Wanggoolba Creek, walk along the banks of this silent flowing creek with lush green rain-forest and rare king ferns… it’s simply breathtaking. Pile Valley, check out the giant Satinay trees, on this forest walk. Lake McKenzie, with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, is even prettier than the postcards. Enjoy a refreshing afternoon swim before heading back to Kingfisher Bay Resort. (L,D)

Day 2 – 4WD Tour

Explore Seventy-Five Mile Beach, the world’s most gorgeous beach highway, and Eli Creek, a great spot for a refreshing dip! Float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek which pours out 80 megalitres of water daily, to the seaside. Maheno Shipwreck, washed ashore during a cyclone in 1935, this rusting wreck is one of Fraser Island’s iconic photo stops. You won’t be disappointed. The Pinnacles Coloured Sands, with all the colours of the rainbow (well just the reds, oranges, ochres and creams really), are another favourite photo stop.  At Indian Head, climb to the top of this rocky headland for awesome island and ocean views… look out for sharks, rays and migrating humpback whales (Jul – Nov). Whilst you visit Champagne Pools, chill out in the bubbling ocean rock pools, you won’t want to leave! Air Fraser offers spectacular scenic flights over the island – book with your guide on tour (extra cost applies).

 Day 3 – 4WD Tour

A relaxed day visiting a few of Fraser’s lesser well known beauty spots. As this is our last day on the island, don’t forget to leave your luggage at the Wilderness Lodge, storage area, for our porters. At Lake Wabby, walk through cool rainforest to beautiful emerald-green Wabby, Fraser’s deepest lake and a favourite swimming hole. It’s so completely different to the rest of the island’s lakes and a real favourite of ours. When you get to Hammerstone Sandblow, trek over one of Fraser’s vast desert-like sand blows, no wonder it’s the world’s largest sand island! For lunch we head to Eurong Beach Resort for their famous all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. If you loved Lake McKenzie then Lake Birrabeen will allure you with its sparkling clear waters and dazzling white beaches… you won’t be able to resist a dip. We think it’s a great way to finish the tour! (B,L).

After a comfort stop at Eurong Beach Resort you can either travel through to Rainbow Beach or return back to Kingfisher Bay Resort, meet the 5.00pm ferry back to Hervey Bay, arriving at approximately 5.50pm, then we’ll drop you straight to your Hervey Bay accommodation for some well earned rest! Or if you are travelling through to Airlie Beach, we can drop you off at the Hervey Bay Coach Terminal. If you are starting in Hervey Bay and want to finish in Rainbow Beach let us know when you are booking or prior to your arrival.
