      Itinerary

      Day 1: Rainbow Beach- K’Gari

      We meet at Freedom Rainbow Beach at 7:00 am, before a short drive to the barge (ferry). For all of our adventurers we’d like them to respect the wishes of the Butchulla People who request ‘Wanya nyin yangu, wanai djinang djaa’ when translated means ‘wherever you go, leave only footprints’.

      Once we have arrived on the world’s largest sand island, put your seat belts on as we jump on K’gari’s very own highway, the ‘Eastern Beach’.

      On this day we will travel along 75 Mile Beach before heading inland via Eurong to Pile Valley, known for the towering satinay trees (hardwood) found through the area along with rainforest. Trek a short walk into the rainforest where you’ll view the amazing trees whilst learning about some of the flora and fauna of the region.
      Board your 4WD for a short trip to visit the famous ‘Boorangoora’ (Lake McKenzie), arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of our K’Gari Safari. We’ll enjoy a bite for lunch whilst spending quality time relaxing and swimming in the lake’s amazingly clear waters. (Note – there’s bathroom facilities to change into your swimwear). Keep an eye out for ‘wongari’ (dingo) and learn from your guide the important information on how to treat the native wildlife and learn some of the traditional names. Once we leave Boorangoora we’ll head back out to 75 Mile Beach and traverse North to our permanent tents for an early dinner and a relaxing evening by the fire. If the skies are clear, your guide will walk a short distance into the darkness to provide you your very own ‘K’Gari Star Show’.

      Day 2: K’Gari – Rainbow Beach

      After breakfast, we head to one of the island’s icons, the SS Maheno Shipwreck and learn about the ship’s history prior to the 1935 cyclone. We’ll then continue a short way South to Eli Creek, a beautifully clear creek, and perfect for another relaxing dip. Our 4WD will then take us in comfort to Central Station to access the boardwalk discovering ancient king ferns with delicate fronds, crystal-clear waterways flashing with fish, eels and birdlife. From Central Station we will then travel along the Southern Lakes circuit to escape the crowds and check out the tranquil waters of Lake Birrabeen. After the day’s activities, it’s time to head back out to the beach and follow the coastline South to the barge, returning to Rainbow Beach.

      Is this tour right for me?

      Swimming. The ocean and waters surrounding K’gari have multiple riptides, no lifeguards patrolling the beaches, and known for shark attacks. We highly recommend NOT to go swimming in the open ocean, regardless of your swimming competency.
      The weather is quite mild year-round. The temperatures during the Summer reach the low 30’s during the day and Winter nights can hover around 10 degrees Celsius during the night.
      This trip requires a moderate level of fitness as it involves a number of short walks, allowing you to really get among nature. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes, comfortable clothing, a cozzie (swimwear), and a towel.
      Camping in permanent tents may not appeal to some people, although a proper bed and linen is provided.
      Group participation makes up a lot of this trip, so you’ll be required to help with the preparation of meals and cleaning up. These are the kind of tasks that bring a group closer together.
