This 2 day/1night 4WD adventure will show you the best Fraser Island (largest sand island in the world) has to offer. After 2 ferry crossings you will arrive on the World Heritage Listed, Fraser Island National Park. As you drive along the amazing 75 Mile Surf Beach it is hard to take in the beauty of sand & surf as far as the eye can see. You get to swim in the ocean, freshwater lakes & waterholes, hike through forests, spot Australian wildlife and learn the history of this unique & wonderful place.
Travel from Brisbane along the Steve Irwin Way, pass the Glass House Mts and continue along the beautiful Sunshine Coast. We make our way to Double Island Point (tide dependent) to look at the Coloured Sands at Rainbow Beach. This is our lunch stop (own expense). Time here to relax, swim or look in the local shops.
Next it is off to catch the Fraser Island Ferry. On the crossing you will see parts of Fraser Island as well as Hervey Bay. Be sure to look out for all the wonderful sea life. After reaching the island you drive along the extraordinary 75 Mile Surf Beach, You cover the southern tip of Fraser Island and in doing so cross as many as 8 creeks!
We visit Eli Creek where you can have fun swimming or floating down the fast flowing creek. This is a popular swimming and picnic spot. There is a boardwalk that follows the creek for those who wish to remain dry.
You can't go past Maheno Shipwreck without stopping and having a look. It got washed up here during a cyclone in 1935 and has called Fraser Island home ever since!
Lake Wabby awaits us next. You will be amazed at the beauty of this lake, one side of it is dark green in colour but you have to wait until you are there to learn why! It is surrounded by bright white sand dunes, just think of the fun you will have on them. You can either swim, walk, or just chill.
We don’t think you could take any more beauty on this day so it is time to head to the private campground at Dilli Beach National Park. There is a great little waterhole behind the campground called Govi Creek, why not take a dip before you BBQ dinner!
Up at sunrise, to see the sun rise over the beautiful ocean, but only if you want to get up early! After we pack up it is off for a swim in the beautiful Lake McKenzie. I guarantee your first glimpse of the lake will take your breath away. The colour of the water is amazing! It will be hard to stop swimming in this beautiful place but you have to get out and head on over to Wanggoolba Creek.
All good things must come to an end sadly. After lunch, it is time to drive back down the most scenic beach road in the world, 75 Mile Surf Beach and head south for home.
You have covered a lot of ground, seen amazing scenery, swum in some of nature’s most beautiful pools, and relaxed.
The one thing everyone always mentions is that they didn’t realize Fraser Island was so large! Perhaps you need another visit to see it all!
