Fraser Island Tours
Tour briefing at Dingos Hostel @ 4.30pm on the day before departure: The comprehensive briefing on the day before your tour will provide information to prepare you for this exciting journey. Here you will be placed into groups and have the opportunity to organise sleeping bag hire and special dietary requirements if required. You will also be taught how to drive safely on Fraser Island ready for your big adventure!
We begin with a morning brief at Dingos Resort where we cover the following: Pack cars, check equipment, Dingo’s safety, and driver briefing. at 9.30am we depart for Fraser Island. We drive approx 10 minutes to the barge (ferry) and board for our 10 minute barge crossing. Once we have arrived on the world's biggest sand island, we then drive for 1 hour to the Eurong resort along 75 Mile beach...Fraser Island's own highway with speed limits! There you can grab a coffee and chocolate croissant (own cost) for morning tea. From here is when the big adventure begins as we drive to the famous Lake McKenzie...arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of Fraser! Here we stop for some lunch, and for some quality time to have a play in the amazing clear waters with your new found friends! Around 3pm we drive up the beach to our campsite, for an early dinner and some well deserved drinks and fun!
Arise in the morning for a quick breakfast before we begin our busiest day on Fraser Island and head off to see Eli creek, a beautifully clear creek perfect for a relaxing swim. Travelling north we then stop at Maheno shipwreck for some photos and short history lesson about this famous Fraser Island icon. Shortly after we travel up to Indian head, Fraser Island's highest point. From here you may be lucky enough to see whales and sharks in the ocean, before we travel to Champagne pools for a dip! We have lunch at either Maheno shipwreck or Champagne pools on Day 2 depending on time constraints, safety, and beauty! In the afternoon we travel back to camp for dinner and drinks.
Start with breakfast, before our cleaning and take down of our camp site. We then drive to the beginning of the Lake Wabby walk, where we walk through the sand dunes to this tropical paradise! Lunch follows our trip to Lake Wabby, before we begin our drive down the beach heading back to the barge. Once back on the mainland we head back to the 4WD shed where you unpack and quickly clean the cars. We return to Dingos Resort between 3pm and 4pm.
