What You Can Expect
Fraser Island is the biggest sand island in the world, created over millennia from sand drifting off of mainland Australia. You'll come to understand why the local Aboriginal people named it K’Gari, or paradise, as you explore freshwater lakes and creeks, giant sand dunes, and lush rainforest, among other natural treasures.
The next day, head further north to the lovely coastal town of 1770, your home base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef. Take a full-day boat tour to Lady Musgrave Island on the Great Barrier Reef, where you can snorkel, swim with turtles, and discover the underwater world up close.
You will stay at beachside resorts in three locations, with your choice of a private room or shared accommodation. See Pricing for a range of lodging options. Each day, you’ll enjoy various included activities, as well as the chance to participate in optional activities (at own expense). Three breakfasts, two lunches, and three dinners are included.
After touring beautiful Cooloola, continue to the Fraser Island ferry. Once you arrive on Fraser Island, board a 4WD vehicle for a breezy ride down the sandy highway of Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Along the way, get out at Eli Creek for a dip. You can opt to walk upstream along a boardwalk then hop in the creek’s gentle waters and float back to the beach.
Next, hike along the rocky coast at Indian Head where you get great ocean views. You may catch sight of sharks, turtles, dolphins, rays, and even migrating humpback whales (July to November). Then continue by coach to the Maheno Shipwreck. Your guide provides a tasty picnic lunch at midday. As you drive, keep your eyes peeled for the island’s wild dingos!
Check in at Eurong Beach Resort for the evening, then have dinner at the resort’s restaurant. Afterward, have the option to take a guided night walk on the beach.
Prefer to stay dry? Watch the underwater world from a semi-submersible or glass-bottom boat.
Enjoy lunch, morning and afternoon tea on board the boat. If conditions permit, end the day with a sunset tour. Then head back to the resort for dinner and an evening at your leisure.
Great tour... This is really a combination of two tours, the Fraser Island tour was great although a much larger bus and tour, then you have an afternoon at Rainbow beach to start the next to the following day. Really enjoyed the reef and second part the best. Guides were great! Saw a sea turtle!
The tour was amazing! The best part was the Great Barrier Reef and Harry was an amazing tour guide!
