This excursion will takes you to Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world and the southernmost in the Great Barrier Reef. Unspoiled beaches, sand cliffs and impressive inland rainforests make the island a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Your journey to Fraser Island on a 4WD bus will included attractions such as Lake McKenzie, Central Station, 75 Miles Beach, Pinnacles, The Maheno shipwreck, and Eli Creek.
Fraser Island has been a World Heritage Site since 1992. The island was formed by sand from the southwest of the continent, which was blown here and deposited as an island off the coast of the Australia.
At River Head, you will take the ferry to Fraser Island. Once there, you will meet the bus and your driver. You will drive across the island to the east coast, passing by deciduous and eucalyptus trees. On the east coast, you will pass small creeks that flow into the sea.
Before lunch, you will visit Central Station, the former camp of all the forest workers who cut wood here years ago, and continue to Eli Creek along 75 Mile Beach. Yes, you read it right. This leg of the journey will take place directly on the beach, since the 75 Mile Beach is an official highway in Australia. There are no signs or planks here. Only the sea and the sand. Depending on the season, whales can be seen from the car.
In Eli Creek, you can walk through the translucent water. Let the shallow current carry you down to the beach. Afterwards we will continue to another attraction, Lake McKenzie, where snow-white sand piles up on the shore banks. The lake is the most famous of the approximately 100 lakes on the island. Enjoy a refreshing dip - and don’t forget your bathing suit!
