COOL DINGO ‘DAY 1` 4WD TOUR
Today we check out some of Fraser`s coolest, sub-tropical inland sights.
Basin Lake is a beautiful perched dune lake, a rare phenomenon; get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles - in this delightful perched dune lake!
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 on this forest walk.
Lake McKenzie - with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, picture perfect Lake McKenzie is even prettier than the postcards. Enjoy a refreshing afternoon swim. Your home for the next two nights will be the Wilderness Lodges at Kingfisher Bay.
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.
A relaxed day visiting a few of Fraser`s lesser well known beauty spots. As this is our last day on island, don`t forget to leave your luggage at the Wilderness Lodge storage area for our porters.
Lake Wabby - walk through cool rainforest to beautiful emerald-green Wabby, Fraser`s deepest lake and a favourite 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 beach!
Eurong Beach Resort - for lunch we head to Eurong for their famous all-you-can-eat lunch buffet.
Lake Birrabeen - if you loved Lake McKenzie then Birrabeen will allure you 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!
Includes buffet breakfast and BBQ lunch.
After a comfort stop at Eurong Beach Resort you can either travel through to Rainbow Beach or return back to Kingfisher Bay Resort meet the 5.00pm ferry back to Hervey Bay, arriving at approximately 5.50pm... then we`ll drop you straight to your Hervey Bay accommodation for some well earned rest! or if you are travelling through to Airlie Beach we can drop your off at the Hervey Bay Coach Terminal.
If you are starting in Hervey Bay and want to finish in Rainbow Beach let us know when you are booking or prior to your arrival.
Please note - touring order and itinerary may vary due to tides, seasons and weather conditions.
Our comfortable Wilderness Lodges promise a good night`s rest on Fraser Island! These 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 insect 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`s separate male and female bathrooms - each with two showers.
Our lodges have an open lounge area that`s perfect for socialising and a small kitchenette with tea and coffee making facilities. Ironing facilities are also available, and there`s a coin-laundry and pay phone nearby.
The Wilderness Lodges are located on the hill north-east of Kingfisher Bay Resort`s main complex (and just across from the Dingo Bar... very handy!!) There`s a regular shuttle service between the lodges and resort - check transfer times with your guide.
Please note that dorm rooms are single sex only.
Wake up to an orchestra of frogs and birdsong, and water views that will make you wish you had just a few more days to stay. Nestled into the island`s landscape, these Queenslander-style, Resort Hotel rooms sit lightly on the land - allowing island wildlife to go about their daily business uninterrupted.
Enjoy the best of the bush from the private native-timber deck, enjoy a cup of our favourite brew in room and indulge in the moment, or soak up the smells and sounds of the land as you wander our timber walkways. And when the day is done, stretch out in air-conditioned comfort on the Queen or King-single beds and reflect on a day well-spent.
Each room has:
• Queen Size Bed
• King Single Bed
