Experience the stunning lakes, creeks and rainforests found on the largest sand island in the world - Fraser Island. Adventure between destinations by 4WD, camp in the evenings and make friends for years to come. All the major sites of Fraser Island will be covered in this trip including Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, Maheno Shipwreck, Lake Wabby, 75 Mile beach and Indian Head.
Attend a tour briefing at 5pm on the day before your adventure: The comprehensive will provide information to prepare you for this exciting journey. Here you will be placed into groups and have the opportunity to organise sleeping bag hire and special dietary requirements if required. You will also be taught how to drive safely on Fraser Island ready for your big adventure!
You begin with a quick morning brief at Freedom Hostel. At 9.30am, depart for Fraser Island. Drive approximately 10 minutes to the barge (ferry) and board for your 10-minute barge crossing. Once you have arrived on the world's biggest sand island, drive for 1 hour to the Eurong resort along 75 Mile beach. Fraser Island's own highway with speed limits! There you can grab a coffee and chocolate croissant (own cost) for morning tea. From here is when the big adventure begins as we drive to the famous Lake McKenzie, arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of Fraser! Here you'll stop for some lunch, and for some quality time to have a play in the amazingly clear waters with your new found friends! Around 3pm, drive up the beach to your campsite, for an early dinner and some well-deserved drinks and fun!
In the morning for a quick breakfast before beginning your busiest day on Fraser Island and head off to see Eli Creek, a beautifully clear creek perfect for a relaxing swim. Travelling north, stop at Maheno shipwreck for some photos and short history lesson about this famous Fraser Island icon. Shortly after, travel up to Indian Head, Fraser Island's highest point. From here you may be lucky enough to see whales and sharks in the ocean before you travel to Champagne pools for a dip! You can have lunch at either Maheno shipwreck or Champagne pools on Day 2 depending on time constraints, safety, and beauty! In the afternoon, travel back to camp for dinner and drinks.
Start with breakfast, before your cleaning and take down of your campsite. You will then drive to the beginning of the Lake Wabby walk, where you'll walk through the sand dunes to this tropical paradise! Lunch follows your trip to Lake Wabby, before you begin your drive down the beach heading back to the barge. Once back on the mainland, head back to the 4WD shed where you unpack and quickly clean the cars. You will return to Freedom Hostel between 3pm and 4pm.
