Sample Itinerary

Lake McKenzie
Stop by for a swim at Lake McKenzie - Fraser Island's most famous lake! The soft silica sands and clear waters offer an oasis in the middle of the rainforest where you can explore and relax. Don't forget to bring along your swimsuit so you can go for a refreshing swim in the amazing water and take a break from the hot Fraser Island sun!

You'll get to spend plenty of time amongst the trees in the rainforest. Make your way to the former logging camp at Central Station and marvel at the towering trees and ancient ferns that have long since overtaken the site. Be sure to take a quick walk to Wanggoolba Creek, a quaint freshwater creek that runs through the heart of the rainforest.

75 Mile Beach
Bump along 75 Mile Beach as your guide drives you around from one destination to the next! This unique highway also functions as the main beach on the eastern coast and a landing strip for landing planes, keeping it quite busy with a lot of traffic! Drive along with the surf on one side and dunes on the other, keeping an eye out for dingoes and other Fraser wildlife!

Eli Creek
Take along a floatie and enjoy Eli Creek in its prime! This slow-moving freshwater creek weaves its way through the forest and out to the ocean, taking passengers along for the ride! The refreshing water is a great place to cool down in the afternoon heat, enjoying your lush surroundings as you let the current take you.

The Maheno Shipwreck
The S.S. Maheno Shipwreck is Fraser Island's very own shipwreck! The rusting hull of this once magnificent ship has been sitting on the Eastern Beach of Fraser Island since the '30s and has long since been a favourite place for visitors to check out and take photos! Watch the tide lap up over the rusting edges as the ill-fated ship slowly sinks into the sand and becomes part of the island!

Indian Head
Visit Indian Head, the best lookout point on the island! This stunning lookout point gives you views of the shoreline and surrounding ocean, giving you a great vantage point to spot whales, dolphins, sharks and rays! Bring along your camera - you'll want to remember this destination for a lifetime.
Due to tide restrictions, we can't always guarantee a visit to the Indian head.

You should also ensure your travel insurance will cover special circumstances including weather events preventing guests from travelling to their tour departure destination and cancelled flights due to unforeseen circumstances.
