Your first day will start with an early departure and morning brief at Freedom Hostel Rainbow Beach at 7am. From here we will depart for Fraser Island around 9:30am, heading firstly for Lake McKenzie, one of the most well-known and enjoyed lakes on the island! This is a great place to swim, relax and enjoy the sun, taking in the sights! We enjoy a lunch here and head to our campsite around 3:00pm, where the campsite is already set up and waiting for you. Guests can look forward to a fun night full of laughter, drinks, socialising and star-gazing!
Your second day will begin bright and early, where you will head to the beautiful Indian Head! This is the best lookout point on Fraser Island, with sightings of whales, sharks, turtles and dolphins! Afterwards head to the unique Champagne Pools, Fraser Island's nature jacuzzi! These bubbling pools are a great place for a dip in the ocean, without having to worry about the tides. Next up is Eli Creek - a slow moving clear creek that heads out to the ocean. Bring along a floatie to really enjoy this stop. After enjoying a float down the creek, you will head to Maheno Shipwreck for a glimpse into the past. This shipwreck has been a part of the Fraser coastline since 1935 and is slowly sinking into the sand! This is a great stop for photos with the open ocean in the background.
