Day 1: Fraser Island
Take the ferry over to the island. Drive up the 75 mile beach to Eurong where you head inland towards Lake McKenzie. Arrive at Lake McKenzie and take a dip in these incredibly pure, clear waters. Drive to Central Station where you eat lunch, walk along the waters of the very special Wanggoolba Creek and learn Fraser Island’s history. You then leave for a drive back to 75-mile beach and onto your camp. Arrive at your incredible campsite and chill after a long day or head up to Corrigin Sandblow for an amazing sunset. Dinner time! Cook a BBQ together with your new Fraser family, spend the night socialising together next to a campfire or under the covered seating area.
Meal(s) included : Lunch, Dinner
Day 2: Fraser Island
Wake up early (hangovers are no excuse!) and enjoy breakfast with everyone. Arrive at the Champagne Pools to cleanse under waves crashing over into the natural rock pools, creating the bubbles where it gets its name. Then back to the cars again for a short drive to your next destination. Climb the stunning Indian Head (one of the few rock formations on the island) to spot the amazing marine wildlife that can be seen off of Fraser Island. If luck is on your side, you can normally spot: humpback whales (August – October), sharks, sea turtles, dolphins, huge rays and many schools of tropical fish. Next a drive back to your camp for lunch and then onto our next location. A short drive down the beach is the largest creek on the eastern beach; Eli Creek. Take a walk up the boardwalk with a rubber ring and float down these serene waters, which pumps up to 4 million litres of fresh water into the sea every hour. The second to last location of the day is a short drive from Eli Creek and your camp; the Maheno shipwreck. As the sun lowers in the sky watch the rusty wreck against the sea sky and incredible coloured sands seen up the coast. Finally, a short stop at the Pinnacles on the way back to your camp. Seen from the beach, this sand formation is a prime example of the coloured sands seen all up the Fraser coastline. Arriving back at your camp to take a breather after an amazing day, wash away the sand in the amazing amenities block just a short walk from our campsite…… then more food! As part of your Fraser family you cook spaghetti bolognese together with garlic bread followed by another night of socialising under some of the southern hemisphere’s most spectacular stars.
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3: Fraser Island / Rainbow Beach
Wake up for your last day on Fraser to another quick and simple breakfast before setting off to our final location on the island. Drive a moderate distance down the Eastern Beach to the entrance of Lake Wabby. Here we will walk for around 40-45 mins down a beautiful sand track through the bush and out onto the Hammerstone Sandblow. Located a short walk along the sand blow Lake Wabby is the deepest lake on Fraser Island so be sure to take a dip in its healing waters and chill next on its shores. After our lunch on the beach, it is time to make our way back to the barge and Rainbow Beach. Arrive back at your hostel in Rainbow Beach between 1pm and 4:30pm, (depending on the tides), and chill for one last night with your new Fraser family or carry on your journey.
