Setting out from Brisbane’s Roma Street Station at 6:45 am (please contact us to inquire about the conditions of pickup if you’d like to depart from the Gold Coast); you’ll travel north with your intimate tour group and friendly, experienced guide towards your destination. On the way, the gorgeous views of the Glass House Mountains will mesmerise you as you watch from your comfortable tour bus. Before arriving at Fraser Island, you’ll be paying a visit to the aptly named Rainbow Beach, to explore the majestic rainbow coloured sand dunes located here. You’ll then board a ferry for the trip over to Fraser Island, looking out for the local dolphins, dugongs and turtles along the way.
When you arrive on this gorgeous tropical sand island, you’ll jump in a 4WD and go for a cruise along Fraser Island’s main highway and aircraft runway, which is actually a 120 km long sandy beach! While you’re motoring along the sweeping 75 Mile Surf Beach, you’ll have the chance to spot dingoes, sea eagles and maybe even a whale. Next, you’ll take a stroll through the largest sand-anchored rainforest in the world and marvel at how the vegetation survives with only the help of fungus spores in the sand. You’ll then visit the famous Wanggoolba Creek at Central Station, via the beautiful Eco Boardwalk, before stopping at Lake McKenzie to take in the scenery, enjoy a delicious fresh lunch and relax in the crystal clear water. You’ll be glad to know there will be many more opportunities to jump in for a dip, as you visit a number of gorgeous beaches, before enjoying another 4WD trip – this time through a forest dotted with ancient species of flora and teeming with unique Aussie wildlife.
You’ll have the chance to learn of Fraser Island’s traditional Indigenous owners, as well as its more recent history of sand mining and timber cutters that helped form the community that exists today. Before returning home, you’ll explore the magnificent Satinay and Blackbutt Forests, as well as re-visit 75 Mile Surf Beach Road.
After crossing to the mainland, you’ll enjoy a break at Rainbow Beach before returning to Brisbane at 7:00 pm.
