All about the Fraser Island Guided Day Tour

Aboriginal legend names Fraser Island K'Gari, meaning paradise and there are 75 miles of sights to enjoy – fresh-water lakes with turtles, rocky outcrops with magnificent views and a natural jacuzzi – all perfect to relax or swim.

Highlights on tour:

Central Station - this former logging station is now a tourist stop. Stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient King Ferns, towering Gum and Pine trees.
Lake McKenzie - enjoy a revitalising swim in the crystal blue waters and relax on the sandy white beaches... it's picture perfect!
Seventy-Five Mile Beach – as you drive along this sandy highway, you may spot birds of prey flying above or humpback whales as they migrate past (between July – November). You may wish to join the Air Fraser team for a scenic flight over the island - book with your guide on tour (optional extra).
Eli Creek - float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek pouring out 80 megalitres of water daily into the ocean.
Maheno Shipwreck - enjoy a photo stop at the rusting wreck of the Maheno washed ashore during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935 – it's one of Fraser Island's most recognisable sites.
The Pinnacles Coloured Sands - learn how these technicolour sand formations were created and the Butchulla legends surrounding them. We stop to take a picture as we drive along Seventy-Five Mile Beach.
