After pickup from accommodations in Urangan and a short briefing on your hikes, you will travel by barge to beautiful Fraser Island where your guide will transfer the group to the first part of the walk.

The guide will prepare your yummy dinner, which you can enjoy before falling asleep under the stars, in a comfortable tent.

Your guide will pick you and drive you to Eastern Beach via Eurong township along the famous 75 Mile Beach, where you will stop along the way to enjoy your lunch in the wilderness. After lunch, you’ll head to Lake Wabby, where you can relax in the deepest Lake on Fraser Island. After a dip, you’ll head out on a short walk to the lookout point for a stunning view. To cap things off, you’ll head to the Kingfisher Bay Resort, where you can relax and have a nice sunset drink before boarding the barge back to Hervey Bay.
