Fraser Island 3 day Adventure
Depart from the Party town of Rainbow Beach 240 Kilometres North of Brisbane.
The Party continues on Fraser Island with your Cool Dingo Guides ready to show you the world’s largest sand Island “Fraser Island”.
You will travel along golden beaches; swim in secluded dune lakes (Yes, even in winter!); walk through sub-tropical rainforest to streams that flow silently into the undergrowth.
But that’s not all – if you want to socialise with your new found mates and relax at day’s end – visit The Dingo Bar for an awesome night out!
Bring a sense of adventure and get ready to bump across the island’s famous sand tracks for three action-packed days on World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
During your 3 day/2 night Fraser Island Adventure you will travel along Fraser’s famous 75-Mile Beach along with Fraser Island’s most pristine and beautiful sites – crystal-clear Lake McKenzie, the historical heart of Central Station and Wanggoolba Creek. Golden dunes, fresh water creeks, rusting ship wrecks… and if time permits our guides might show you some of their own special spots!

- DAY 1 7.30 am – Pick up from you Hostel at Rainbow Beach heading for Insip Point to meet the Fraser Island Barge. Today we check out some of Fraser’s coolest, sub-tropical inland sights. First stop is beautiful Basin Lake – get up close and personal with the resident freshwater turtles – in this delightful perched dune lake! It’s a cool, easy walk through bushland… and it’s an awesome feeling when you arrive at this little oasis in the sand. Central Station – no trains or whistles here – just peaceful, ancient rainforest and the reminders of a former, once bustling logging camp. Queensland Parks and Wildlife have set up a small information centre and displays if you’re keen to know more about Fraser’s logging past. Wanggoolba Creek – walk along the banks of this silent flowing creek with lush green rainforest and rare king ferns… it’s simply breathtaking. Keep your eyes peeled for eels and catfish – which are easily spotted in the clear water. Pile Valley – check out the giant satinay trees on this forest walk through sub-tropical rainforest… it’s incredible that these forest giants grow completely in sand… and makes a cool pic for you to post on social media sites or send back to your friends and family at home. Lake McKenzie – with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, picture perfect Lake McKenzie is even prettier than the postcards. Enjoy a refreshing afternoon swim before heading back to Kingfisher Bay Resort. Includes picnic lunch and buffet dinner.
- ‘DAY 2 Today, we’ve got an early start as we travel through the spine of the island and explore Seventy-Five Mile Beach, the world’s most gorgeous beach highway… which also doubles as an airstrip! Eli Creek – a great spot for a refreshing dip! Float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek – which pours out 80 mega litres of water daily – to the seaside. The creek changes direction every once in a while, so we never know quite what to expect. Maheno Shipwreck – washed ashore during a cyclone in 1935, this rusting wreck is one of Fraser Island’s coolest photo stops. The Pinnacles Coloured Sands – With all the colours of the rainbow (well just the reds, oranges, ochres and creams really) these vibrant sand cliffs are another favourite photo stop. Indian Head – climb to the top of this rocky headland for awesome island and ocean views (that’s the Coral Sea)… look out for giant sea turtles, sharks, rays and migrating humpback whales (Jul – Nov). Champagne Pools – chill out in these bubbling ocean rock pools, you won’t want to leave this gorgeous spot! Air Fraser offers spectacular scenic flights over the island – book with your guide on tour (extra cost applies) – and make sure you get a photo as the plane takes off on sand – your friends back home won’t believe it, unless they see it for themselves. Includes buffet breakfast, picnic lunch and buffet dinner.
- DAY 3 Today, we slow the place slightly and visit a few of Fraser Island’s lesser well known beauty spots. As this is our last day on island, don’t forget to leave your luggage at the Wilderness Lodge storage area for our porters. Lake Wabby – walk through cool rainforest to beautiful emerald-green Wabby, Fraser’s deepest lake is actually a creek that has been dammed by a massive sand blow – and is a pretty cool swimming hole. It’s so completely different to the rest of the island’s lakes and a real favourite of ours. Hammerstone Sandblow – Trek over one of Fraser’s vast, desert-like sand blows – no wonder it’s the world’s largest sand island – to the eastern beach. Eurong Beach Resort – for lunch we head to Eurong for their famous all-you-can-eat lunch buffet… just the thing for hungry tourists! Lake Birrabeen – if you loved Lake McKenzie then Lake Birrabeen will charm, with its sparkling clear waters and dazzling white beaches… you won’t be able to resist a dip. We think it’s a great way to finish the tour! Includes buffet breakfast and BBQ lunch. After a comfort stop at Eurong Beach Resort you will join the transfer bus back down the beach to Rainbow Beach. Or if you wish you can head to Hervey Bay on the 5 pm ferry which gets you back into Hervey Bay at 6.30 pm (it’s perfect timing, if you are travelling onwards to Airlie Beach). If you want to head back to Hervey Bay, please make sure that you mention this at the time of booking.
- Please note – touring order and itinerary may vary due to tides, seasons and weather conditions but our guides are super experienced at handling the conditions and helping you get the most out of your time on Fraser!
