Do Fraser in one fun-filled day with an experienced local guide and see the best the island has to offer. Take a swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake McKenzie or just relax on its dazzling white beaches. Explore Central Station, a former forestry camp with huge satinay, scribbly gum, brush box and kauri trees. Walk along the banks of Wanggoolba Creek which flows gently and silently through lush rainforest. Travel up famous Seventy-Five Mile Beach to see the coloured sands of the Pinnacles and the wreck of the cruise ship Maheno. Stop for a swim in Eli Creek as it flows swiftly through the dunes out to sea. Relax and enjoy a hot and cold buffet lunch at Eurong Beach Resort. The tour travels from Hervey Bay to River Heads for the 8.30am barge crossing to the Wanggoolba Creek landing on Fraser Island. Tour departs Fraser Island on the 5pm barge back to River Heads and returns to Hervey Bay between 6pm and 7pm.
This day tour was brilliant. One to tick off the bucket list!
We got picked up at 7.30am and taken to the barge. It was a short hour across to Fraser Island. First stop was Lake McKenzie for a swim. The water colour was so clear. Next we went to Central Station for a guided tour of the rainforest. It was beautiful. After that we had a lovely lunch at Eurong Resort. We then drove onto 75 Mile Beach and visited the Maheno shipwreck, coloured sands and Eli Creek. There was an option to go on a scenic flight. We did this and it was wonderful. The cost was very reasonable. We had a wonderful day.
