Fraser Coast Outdoor Activities
By Viator, December 2013
Another not-to-miss Fraser Island experience is Waddy Point. This secluded cove offers a peaceful place to fish, swim, camp, surf, body board, hike, boat and bird-watch. Wildlife enthusiasts enjoy seeing sea turtles, sharks, stingray and fish from the cove, while photographers snap shots of Fraser Island’s only lighthouse from across the bay.
At Wanggoolba Creek, visitors can enjoy Fraser Islands’ outdoor offerings in a rainforest setting. This crystal clear creek features a soft sand bottom and is surrounded by lush vegetation. Go for a scenic stroll around its perimeters or wade in the calm waters for a relaxing experience. Nearby is Lake McKenzie -- often touted as the island’s most beautiful lake -- which is a popular place to go for a swim in clear waters. Interestingly, the fine white silica sand is great for cleaning jewelry and removing skin impurities.
For those who enjoy hiking, opt for the Fraser Island Great Walk, encompassing 90 kilometers (56 miles) of coastal, rainforest and sand dune landscapes. While the trek takes about six to eight days to complete you can choose to just do a section if you want something shorter.
