All about the 2 Day Fraser Island Explorer Tour

Just imagine swimming in fresh-water lakes, bright as jewels ringed by white sandy beaches, walking through tall ancient rainforest growing in sand, four-wheel driving along a beach flanked by strikingly coloured sand cliffs to find a ship wreck. That's Fraser Island! Spend two full days of fun and adventure on Fraser Island, led by an experienced local guide who'll take you to see the very best the island has to offer.

Lake McKenzie is the most famous of all of the Fraser Island attractions, notable for its size, its crystal clear fresh water, the surrounding pure white sand. The water is a stunning vivid blue, and the pure-silica sand is soft underfoot. The sand is so fine it is ideal for skin exfoliation. Grab a handful and give yourself a little spa treatment. The water is slightly acidic from decaying plants this limits the viability of aquatic life but in no way affects the pleasure of a well-earned swim.
