Tour Description

Fraser Island was known to the local indigenous people as 'K'Gari', meaning paradise, and the island lives up to this title with plenty of places to enjoy – fresh-water lakes with turtles, rocky outcrops with magnificent views and a natural jacuzzi – all perfect to relax or swim.

Your day starts with a hotel pick up from most accommodation in Hervey Bay, and a barge crossing from River Heads to Fraser Island.

The tour is led by a local guide who is an expert in all things Fraser Island, and can impart local knowledge throughout your day. Your day on the island will be an adventurous one, driving across sand tracks to explore some beautiful spots, while we let you know interesting facts about the island's history, fauna and flora. You'll travel in comfort in our custom designed 4WD buses, all of which are air-conditioned.

Once we arrive on the island at the Wanggoolba Creek landing, we set off on our tour of the island, visiting locations such as;

Central Station - this former logging station is now a tourist stop. Stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient King Ferns, towering Gum and Pine trees.
Lake McKenzie - enjoy a revitalising swim in the crystal blue waters and relax on the sandy white beaches... it's picture perfect!
Seventy-Five Mile Beach – as you drive along this sandy highway, you may spot birds of prey flying above or humpback whales as they migrate past (between July – November).
Eli Creek - float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek pouring out 80 megalitres of water daily into the ocean.
Maheno Shipwreck - enjoy a photo stop at the rusting wreck of the Maheno washed ashore during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935 – it's one of Fraser Island's most recognisable sites.
The Pinnacles Coloured Sands - learn how these technicolour sand formations were created and the Butchulla legends surrounding them. We stop to take a picture as we drive along Seventy-Five Mile Beach.

Along the way, you'll enjoy a buffet lunch at the Eurong Beach Resort.

On our day tour you get to see so much and you will love the great contrasts. A swim in Lake McKenzie is a must, the water is so blue, you could say it reflects our beautiful Queensland skies, visit the coloured sands where the variety of colours is unbelievable, some say 72 different shades, and walk through forests where the King Ferns date back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Your tour departs Fraser Island on the barge back to River Heads and returns to Hervey Bay at approximately 5.30pm to drop you off to your accommodation.


Please note: Itinerary can change due to tides and weather conditions.

If English is your second language, we have MP3 guides available in Spanish, Italian, German, Korean and Chinese. If you require one, please just let us know when you book. These can be picked up from the Ticket Hut with a small, refundable deposit per device.
