Tour Overview

Australia is home to many unique natural wonders and Fraser Island is no exception. It’s a natural beauty with over 250 kilometres of clear sandy beaches with long, uninterrupted sweeps of ocean beach, strikingly coloured sand cliffs, and spectacular sand blowouts. Inland from the beach is majestic remnants of tall rainforest growing on sandy dunes and half of the world’s perched freshwater dune lakes.

When you arrive in beautiful Noosa, check-in at our amazing Nomads Noosa Hostel, located at 44 Noosa Drive, Noosa. Don’t forget to arrive before 6:00 pm as your compulsory pre-tour safety briefing will be held at Nomads KB’s Bar at this time! You’ll get to meet your fellow travellers and get to know more about the awesome Fraser Island tour you’ll be doing! This safety briefing will include driving tips, do’s and don’ts and the drivers will fill in liability and insurance forms at this time as well. After the briefing, it’s time to pack your small backpack, so you’re all set for your early start the next morning!

Optionally stay overnight at Nomads Noosa

Check-in at 6:15 am at Nomads Noosa, We’ll depart nice & early at 7:30 am. . After we get your luggage in storage, you’ll be heading towards Rainbow Beach where you’ll be arriving after a 1.5-2hr drive. The refundable insurance cash deposit of $250 per person will be collected at this time, refunded in full provided the vehicle is returned un-damaged, or you can pay a non-refundable $10 excess reduction fee. We stop here for a quick coffee break and look-around, collect our food and the 4WD’s. Travellers joining in Rainbow Beach will do their safety brief this morning.

We take the ferry from Rainbow Beach and land at Hook Point on the Southern tip of Fraser Island approximately 10 min later. Depending on the weather, and the tide your guide will assess whether it is safe to travel on the beach or if we need to select an alternative route to our next destination– Eurong Resort where we have a break and some Lunch (delicious sandwiches). After Lunch, we head inland through some amazing rainforest where we can see some of the island’s unique flora and hopefully spot some wildlife too! Our destination for the afternoon is Lake McKenzie, famous for its clear blue water and sandy beach, covering more than 150 hectares and five meters in depth. We then drive back through the rainforest on the way to our campground at Eurong Resort, where we’ll be arriving in the late afternoon. After a refreshing shower, it’s dinner time!

Your second day means another early start so you get to make the most of your time on the island! After breakfast (continental style breakfast – cereal, toasts, spread, tea& coffee), we drive up to stunning Eli Creek, the largest freshwater creek on the Eastern Coast of the Island, which carves its way through to the beach and pours 80 million litres of water a day into the Pacific Ocean! After spending some quality time here, we’ll be heading up to the famous Maheno Shipwreck. The SS Maheno has driven ashore on Fraser Island during a cyclone in 1935 and provides you with some awesome photo opportunities. Next up, we continue north past the Coloured Sands comprising of 72 different colours of sand. After a Lunch stop (wraps) and a break, we continue driving up to Indian Head. Indian Head is a large rocky headland, which is great for shark spotting and stunning views over the island! After taking in the breathtaking scenery, we’ll head over to our final stop of the day: Champagne Pools. This is a popular swimming hole with the ocean crashing over the rocks into shallow sandy pools. After an action-packed day, we head back to our campground at Eurong Resort!
