DAY 1 7.30 am Pick up from Rainbow Beach to start your World Heritage Adventure. Off to In skip Point to take the barge to Fraser Island landing at the Southern end of Fraser Island.
Today we check out some of Fraser Island’s coolest inland sights. Basin Lake – first stop is a walk to beautiful Basin Lake along sand tracks – get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles in this gorgeous little 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 Mother Nature at her best!
Pile Valley – check out the towering, red satinay trees in this rich sub-tropical forest… real giants!
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 before heading back to Kingfisher Bay.
Includes picnic lunch and buffet dinner.
DAY 2 An early start to explore Seventy-Five Mile Beach, the world’s most amazing beach highway – which also doubles as a landing strip for Air Fraser Island’s scenic tour planes – so there’s plenty to see and do and the beach changes daily.
As this is your last day, don’t forget to leave your luggage at the Wilderness Lodge storage area for our porters. Eli Creek – a great spot for a refreshing dip on a warm Queensland day!
Float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek – which pours out 80 mega litres of water daily – to the seaside. Maheno Shipwreck – washed ashore during a cyclone in 1935, this rusting wreck is one of Fraser’s most iconic photo stops and has a really interesting history.
It’s a popular spot for most visitors to Fraser Island. The Pinnacles Coloured Sands – With all the colours of the rainbow (well just the reds really) these vibrant sand cliffs are another favourite photo stop… and don’t forget to ask your guide about the Aboriginal story of its creation.
Indian Head – climb to the top of this rocky headland for awesome beach and ocean views… look out for sharks, rays, giant sea turtles, schools of fish and migrating humpback whales (July – November) – just keep your eyes peeled for the tell-tale spouts of water or giant splashes as they leap out of the water.
Champagne Pools – chill out in these bubbling ocean rock pools, you won’t want to leave!
These tidal pools change daily, but it’s always a highlight to sit in salt water, with the sound of the ocean behind you; sand dunes in front and little fish going about their business around you.Please note – touring order and itinerary may vary due to tides, seasons and weather conditions – but our guides are EXPERTS at reading the weather and conditions and delivering you the best tour possible.
