WHAT TO EXPECT
Visit World Heritage-listed Fraser Island (K’Gari) on the ultimate Australian beach 4×4 driving and camping adventure. Experience 4×4 driving yourself in one of the tag-along vehicles whilst visiting the most amazing freshwater lakes and ancient rainforests.
Day one starts early with a 7:00 am departure from Rainbow Beach, to take the barge across from Inskip Point to Fraser Island. Once the tires hit the sand on the other side, you'll take the awe-inspiring drive up the first portion of 75 Mile Beach to Eurong. Turn inland towards Lake McKenzie, one of the most beautiful locations on the island. On arrival, take a dip in these incredibly pure, clear waters. Words do not do this amazing lake any justice.
Drive to Central Station where you'll eat lunch and walk along the waters of the very special Wanggoolba Creek. Learn Fraser Island’s history in a time before this beautiful island was protected. We then leave for a drive back to 75 Mile Beach and onto the camp. Chill out for a bit, then it's time for dinner. Cook a BBQ together with your new Fraser Family and spend the night socializing together next to a campfire or under the covered seating area.
Wake up early (hangovers are no excuse!) to a simple, easy breakfast of toast and cereal before getting back in the cars to head further north. Arrive at the Champagne Pools to cleanse under awesome waves crashing over into the natural rock pools, creating the bubbly “champagne.” Then back to the cars again for a short drive to our next destination.
Climb the stunning Indian Head (one of the few rock formations on the island) to spot the amazing marine wildlife that can be seen off of Fraser Island. If luck is on our side, we can normally spot humpback whales (August – October), sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, huge rays, and many schools of tropical fish. Next, drive back to camp for lunch and before heading onto our next location.
A short drive down the beach is the largest creek on the Eastern Beach; Eli Creek. Take a walk up the boardwalk with a rubber ring and float down these serene waters. Eli Creek pumps up to 4 million litres of freshwater into the sea every hour!
The second to last location of the day is a short drive from Eli Creek; the Maheno shipwreck. As the sun lowers in the sky watch the rusty wreck against the sea sky and incredible coloured sands seen up the coast. Finally, take a short stop at The Pinnacles on the way back to camp. Seen from the beach this sand formation is a prime example of the coloured sands seen all up the Fraser Coast.
Arriving back at camp to take a breather after an amazing day, wash away the sand in the amazing amenities block just a short walk from our campsite…… then more food! As part of our Fraser Family, we cook spaghetti bolognese together with garlic bread, followed by another night of socialising under some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most spectacular stars.
The last day in paradise includes another quick and simple breakfast before setting off to the final location. Drive a moderate distance down the Eastern Beach to the entrance of Lake Wabby. Here we will walk for around 40–45 mins down a beautiful sand track through the bush and out onto the Hammerstone Sandblow. Located a short walk along the sand blow, Lake Wabby is the deepest lake on Fraser Island, so be sure to take a dip and chill next on its shores.
After our lunch on the beach, it is time to make our way back to the barge and Rainbow Beach. Arrive back between 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm (dependant on the tides).
