All about the 3 Day Cool Dingo Fraser Island Tour from Hervey Bay

Spend 3 days on Fraser Island with Cool Dingo, the perfect partners to take you out to explore and enjoy this beautiful sand island. 

On this Fraser Island tour we check out some of Fraser's coolest, sub-tropical inland sights. Including Lake McKenzie, with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, picture perfect Lake McKenzie is even prettier than the postcards. Visit Central Station a place of peaceful, ancient rainforest and the reminders of a former, once bustling logging camp, explore Wanggoolba Creek by walking along the banks of this silent flowing creek with lush green rainforest and rare king ferns... it's simply breathtaking. See Pile Valley check out the giant Satinay trees and imagine their timbers lining the Suez Canal. The Basin Lake, enjoy a forest walk into beautiful Basin Lake. Get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles in this delightful perched dune lake before heading back to Kingfisher Bay Resort. Explore Seventy-Five Mile Beach, the world's most gorgeous beach highway. Eli Creek, a great spot for a refreshing dip! Float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek which pours out 80 megalitres of water daily to the seaside. The famous Maheno Shipwreck, washed ashore during a cyclone in 1935, this rusting wreck is one of Fraser Island's iconic photo stops. You won't be disappointed. The Pinnacles Coloured Sands with all the colours of the rainbow (well just the reds, oranges, ochres and creams really) these vibrant sand cliffs are another favourite photo stop. Indian Head here you can climb to the top of this rocky headland for awesome island and ocean views... look out for sharks, rays and migrating humpback whales (Jul - Nov).

Champagne Pools, chill out in these bubbling ocean rock pools, you won't want to leave! Air Fraser offers spectacular scenic flights over the island - book with your guide on tour (extra cost applies). The last day is a relaxed day visiting a few of Fraser's lesser well-known beauty spots. Lake Wabby, walk through the forest to beautiful emerald-green Wabby, Fraser's deepest lake and a favourite swimming hole. It's so completely different to the rest of the island's lakes and a real favourite of ours. See Hammerstone Sandblow trek over one of Fraser's vast desert-like sand blows no wonder it's the world's largest sand island, to the beach! The last swim at Lake Birrabeen, if you loved Lake McKenzie then Birrabeen will allure you with its sparkling clear waters and dazzling white beaches... you won't be able to resist a dip.

Give yourself 3 days on Fraser Island to really see all the highlights and more.
