Overview
Discover the natural beauty of Fraser Island on a 2-day guided tour — an ideal getaway for nature lovers. Stop at the stunning beach in Cooloola Recreation Area on the way, then enjoy offroading on Seventy-Five Mile Beach to the Maheno shipwreck when you arrive at Fraser Island. Your knowledgeable guide shows you all the highlights, including swimming spots at Lake Birrabeen, Seventy-Five Mile Beach and Eli Creek, and lush rainforest walks at Pile Valley, Central Station and Wanggoolba Creek. Includes one night at a comfortable beach resort.
What to Expect
Fraser Island boasts dozens of freshwater lakes and creeks, expansive swathes of rainforest and hulking sand dunes. In fact, Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world, made from sand that drifted off of mainland Australia over the millennia.

Eurong Beach Resort is your homebase, situated in a picturesque location on Seventy-Five Mile Beach. When booking, choose either a private twin room or a shared 4-person room (see Pricing for details). Three meals are included, in addition to all transportation. Bring swim gear for a dip in Eli Creek, Lake Birrabeen or other spots, and be prepared for leisurely hikes in Pile Valley and Central Station. You might spot dolphins and whales offshore, and glimpse a wild dingo on land. Keep your camera handy!
Itinerary
Day 1: Gold Coast or Brisbane – Fraser Island (L, D)After departure from the Gold Coast or Brisbane, travel by 4WD coach to Cooloola National Park en route to Fraser Island. See kangaroos along the Noosa North Shore and ride down Teewah Beach. Marvel at the brilliant red sands of Red Canyon and Rainbow Beach (subject to weather conditions).
Once you have seen colorful Cooloola, drive onto the ferry to Fraser Island. When you arrive, your guide shows you around the UNESCO World Heritage-listed region by 4WD vehicle. Look for the island’s resident population of wild dingos as you travel!
Hang on as your 4WD vehicle bounces over the white sands of Seventy-Five Mile Beach for a stop to swim at Eli Creek. Strong swimmers can wade upstream to float back down to the beach on the creek’s gentle current.
When you’re refreshed, trek along Indian Head, a rocky headland that boasts great views over the ocean. From its viewpoint, you may glimpse dolphins, rays, sharks, turtles and even humpback whales (during the July to November migration). Then stop for photos at the iconic Maheno Shipwreck. Your guide provides a picnic lunch and sets the itinerary depending on the conditions of the day.
In the evening, arrive at Eurong Beach Resort to check into your room and then have dinner at the on-site restaurant.
Overnight: Eurong Beach Resort, Fraser Island
Day 2: Fraser Island – Gold Coast or Brisbane (B)Get an early start after breakfast at the resort, so that you can make the most of the day! Buzz over to Pile Valley for a rainforest walk where your guide points out the termites-and-fire-resistant satinay trees, making them popular in the timber industry. Arrive at Central Station, a formerly bustling logging station and learn about the importance of Fraser Island to the timber industry; satinay wood was even used in constructing the Suez Canal and London Docks.
Continue to stroll along a boardwalk through towering ghost gums, king ferns and pine trees and see Wanggoolba Creek; the clear water seems to disappear as it flows over white sand. Next swim in Lake Birrabeen or relax on its sandy white beach. Then take a scenic lake drive and end up at Seventy-Five Mile Beach where you can enjoy another taste of the sea and sun.

Have a late lunch (own expense) at Rainbow Beach, where your guide can help you find the best eats. After lunch, catch the ferry back to the mainland to return to Brisbane or the Gold Coast by mid-afternoon.

Hi Tyia, It’s about 2.5 to 3 hours is the journey from Brisbane to the bay. The boat ride is for about 15 minutes. Cheers. Dpk
