Island Expeditions: What To Expect…
There are no roads to Fraser Island so you’ll need to arrive by barge and when you do get there you’re going to need a proper 4×4. So leave your Toyota Prius at home, you won’t be able to access this place that easily. Ancient sand dunes, unique rainforest and crystal clear freshwater lakes cover an island that’s surrounded by shipwrecks and sharks. There’s camping, adventuring and lot’s of exploring ahead. Travel down 120km long beaches, pass through 200m tall King Ferns, spot wild Dingoes and meander down sparkling creeks. Fraser Island beckons, grab your adventure gear and let’s go!
