Your Tour departs at 9.00am on the Kingfisher Bay Resort Ferry. Make sure you check in to the Kingfisher Bay Mainland Terminal (at River Heads) by 8.15am, or, for a hassle free alternative, please let us know where you`re staying and we`ll pick you up between 7.00 and 8.00am. The ferry ride to Fraser Island, across the Great Sandy Strait, around 50 minutes. Your guide will meet you at the resort`s jetty and after the group introductions and a quick briefing, your 4WD adventure on Fraser begins!
Today we check out some of Fraser`s coolest, sub-tropical inland sights.
Lake McKenzie - with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, picture perfect Lake McKenzie is even prettier than the postcards.
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 rainforest and rare king ferns... it`s simply breathtaking.
Pile Valley - check out the giant Satinay trees and imagine their timbers lining the Suez Canal.
Basin Lake - enjoy a forest walk into beautiful Basin Lake - get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles - in this delightful perched dune lake before heading back to Kingfisher Bay Resort.
* Includes picnic lunch and buffet dinner.
An early start to explore Seventy-Five Mile Beach, the world`s most gorgeous beach highway.
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) these vibrant sand cliffs are another favourite photo stop.
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).
Champagne Pools - chill out in these 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).
* Includes buffet breakfast, picnic lunch and buffet dinner.
Today, we slow the place slightly and visit a few of Fraser Island`s lesser well known beauty spots. As this is our last day on island, don`t forget to take your luggage with you if you are returning to Rainbow Beach.
• Lake Wabby - walk through cool rainforest to beautiful emerald-green Wabby, Fraser`s deepest lake is actually a creek that has been dammed by a massive sand blow - and is a pretty cool swimming hole. It`s so completely different to the rest of the island`s lakes and a real favourite of ours.
• Hammerstone Sandblow - Trek over one of Fraser`s vast, desert-like sand blows - no wonder it`s the world`s largest sand island - to the eastern beach.
• Eurong Beach Resort - for lunch we head to Eurong for their famous all-you-can-eat lunch buffet... just the thing for hungry tourists!
• Lake Birrabeen - if you loved Lake McKenzie then Lake Birrabeen will charm, 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!
Meal Included Includes buffet breakfast and lunch.
After a comfort stop at Eurong Beach Resort you will join the transfer bus back down the beach to Rainbow Beach. The returning coach leaves Fraser Island around 5pm.
Forget fidgety nights with tents and sleeping bags... our comfy Wilderness Lodges promise a good night`s rest on Fraser! The modern timber lodges are surrounded by gum trees, bush plants and native birds, so you`ll still get your nature fix!
Each lodge has twin, double and quad-share bedrooms, all fully screened. Bedrooms have ceiling fans to keep you cool during summer and heating for those chilly winter nights. Linen, blankets and bath towels are provided and there are separate male and female bathrooms, each with two showers. Lodges have an open lounge area and kitchenette with tea & coffee making facilities. Ironing facilities are also available, and there`s a coin-laundry nearby.
Twin/Double rooms are bookable on a request basis only. Every effort will be made to provide the requested room type, however, bed configuration cannot be guaranteed and, due to tight demand there is a strong possibility that you will be allocated a normal quad room with bunk bedding, but on a sole basis for two pax only
