Overview

Spend an incredible day exploring the natural beauty of Fraser Island, seeing highlights such as Central Station, Wanggoolba Creek, Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, Seventy-Five Mile Beach, the Pinnacles, and the Maheno shipwreck. The island is a natural treasure chest, with abundant animal and plant life on land, and dolphins, dugong, sharks and humpback whales offshore. You’ll experience the island’s best on a full day trip with an expert guide, with plenty of time to enjoy the pristine lakes, beaches, creeks and rainforest.

After pickup at your hotel in Hervey Bay or meeting at Rivers Head, you’ll board the ferry to Fraser Island where you transfer to a comfortable four-wheel drive (4WD) air-conditioned coach. Your expert guide will share stories about the island's history, flora and fauna as you spend the day exploring the natural beauty of the World Heritage-listed island.

You’ll travel first to Central Station where you’ll stroll along a boardwalk next to the crystal clear waters of Wanggoolba Creek that stream over white sand through a rainforest valley. Discover idyllic shady spots surrounded by ancient king ferns and towering ghost gum and pine trees.

Next you’ll head to Lake McKenzie, a pristine gem with clear water and sandy white beaches. Note how soft your skin and hair feel after bathing in the fresh water of this picture perfect lake.

Then you’ll drive along Seventy-Five Mile Beach, a sandy highway where you can spot birds of prey and humpback whales (migrating July – November). You also can choose to sign up for a 15-minute scenic flight over the island (own expense) while the coach continues down the beach and meets the plane when it lands.

You’ll arrive at the spot where Eli Creek’s pours into the ocean. Follow your guide a short distance up the creek then float in the fast-moving water back to the beach.

Reboard your coach for photo stops at your next two destinations: the iconic Maheno Shipwreck–which washed ashore during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935–and the colored sand cliffs of the Pinnacles. Your guide will explain how the technicolor sand formations were created and the aboriginal legends about the site.

Along the way, you'll pull into a beach resort for a tasty buffet lunch. After your day’s adventures, you’ll catch the ferry back to River Heads and be returned to your hotel.

Well worth the money. Took daughter and granddaughter with my wife.
My wife gets car sick, so was fortunate enough to sit beside our driver/guide for the whole trip.
We were lucky enough to see whales and dingoes on the beach. Our driver/guide knew all of the history and geography of the Island. Lunch was good, with a variety of salads, perhaps a better selection of desert would be appreciated. A well organised day, with no mishaps. Would recommend this tour to all.

This was a long day with a lot of bumpy rides on the beach and in the rainforest but it was a great tour. We had a lovely ferry ride to the island. Spent more time than I expected riding on the 75 mile beach. We spent time at the creek, would have liked a little longer there. I decided to do the plane ride on the beach . It was not too expensive 80 dollars. It was a great experience to see the island from the air and see sharks in the water and take off and land on the beach. The lunch was 3 courses and had lots to choose from - very good. The other creek which was in the rain forest was very serene and peaceful. Lastly swimming in Lake Mackenzie was great. It so clear and not cold. It was really refreshing. Lastly Butch the guide was friendly and was so full of information I do not know where he stores it all. He drove well, gave people a chance to ride in the front of the bus if they wanted too. He took photos of you if you wanted him too. He also showed us a Guyana he had found climbing on a tree. He imparted lots of information to us. Well done driving and talking Bu5ch. I would definitely recommend this trip

Fabulous day out, I would highly recommend this trip. It rained all day on our day trip and although this disappointed us it did not spoil the day. Our driver mark was the best.
