Full description
After a mandatory safety briefing before departure, make the short journey to Inksip Point to board the ferry to Fraser Island. Test your beach driving skills with the drive to Lake McKenzie via Eurong Beach Resort and Fraser Island's own beach highway, complete with speed limits.   Take in the stunning scenery at Lake McKenzie, famous for its brilliant blue waters and sparkling white sand beach. With plenty of time, enjoy a refreshing swim, laze about in the sun, or take advantage of some brilliant photo opportunities. After lunch, head to the campsite for an early dinner and drinks with your new friends. The next day will be full of exploring as you head out after breakfast to visit Eli Creek, a beautiful freshwater creek surrounded by rainforests presenting the perfect opportunity for a relaxing swim. Wander up the boardwalk and then let the gentle current float you back to the beach. Then, it is off to the Maheno Shipwreck where you can learn about the history of this Fraser Island icon and get some wonderful photo opportunities.   Another trip along the beach highway brings you to Indian Head, the highest point on Fraser Island and a great vantage point for views over the beach. Those with a good eye may even spot some sea life such as turtles, whales (seasonal), or sharks. The Champagne Pools are next, where you can enjoy a natural spa in these seawater pools next to the ocean. Afterwards, return back to camp for another evening of sharing travel stories. After breakfast and a quick clean of the campsite, head to the tropical oasis, Lake Wabby, a short walk over the magnificent sand dunes. Go for another swim and admire the tropical paradise that surrounds the area before enjoying your last meal together as a group.   Finally, wave goodbye to the world's largest sand island and make your way back to the mainland via the ferry and Inskip Point. After a quick cleaning and unpacking of the vehicles, you will arrive back at Rainbow Beach around 3-4 PM.

    An incredibly great experience in a group. It was 3 very special days, great places to visit and swim, an incredibly beautiful island. The tour was a lot of fun and fun for me. Also the way of self-sufficiency when cooking in the evening has something and the very reduced way of sleeping in the tent has evoked positive memories. An all-round great event. Our guide Luke was a special brand in itself, very positive with a lot of fun and joy. Extremely recommendable.
