Fraser Island main attractions
lake wabby1

Lake Wabby
Lake Wabby is a small freshwater lake with an incredible green colour. The Lake itself is gradually getting smaller as the sand dune Hammerstone Sandblow encroaches on it. Lake Wabby is a barrage lake, meaning that the flow of water from a natural spring has been blocked by a sand dune. It’s a lovely walk to get there over the dunes and a nice refreshing dip on a hot day.

Eli Creek
A favourite amongst tourists visiting Fraser Island is Eli Creek. It’s the largest creek on the east coast of the island and flows 80 million litres of water per day. With its unique and varied wildlife it’s not hard to see why it is a tourist favourite! The crystal clear water of the creek is actually drinkable! Eli Creek can get a bit crowded, but don’t let that hold you back from enjoying the sights, having a swim and relaxing at this incredible spot.

lake-mckenzie-1

Lake Mckenzie
Possibly one of the most well known places on Fraser Island, and most photographed, Lake Mckenzie has incredibly clear water and the sand is so fine (and so soft to walk on) you can even clean your jewellery with it and it acts a light exfoliant for your skin! This lake is a ‘perched’ lake, which actually means that it only contains rainwater. Lake McKenzie is not fed by streams and doesn’t flow to the ocean, and the sand at its bottom prevents the rainwater from draining away. The same sand also acts as a natural water filter which is where it gets its clear blue colour from. The purity of the however means that not much life survives here.

75 Mile Beach
75 Mile Beach stretches up the East Coast of Fraser Island and is… wait for it, almost 75 miles long (not exactly, but near enough!). It’s not advised to go swimming in the sea along this beach as the water can be dangerous, the tiger sharks hanging around are even more dangerous! 75 Mile Beach is used as a highway and as a landing strip for light aircraft. There are numerous places to stop as you drive up the beach such as Eli Creek, the Maheno Shipwreck and at the far end Indian Head and The Champagne Pools.

maheno-shipwreck-1

Maheno Shipwreck
The Maheno (meaning ‘island’ in Maori) was originally built in Scotland in 1904. It was used as a hospital ship during WW1 and then sold to a Sydney shipping company who used it for journeys between Australia and New Zealand. It was then sold to a Japanese shipping company who planned to use it for scrap. It was during this journey to Japan that the Maheno was shipwrecked on 75 mile beach during a cyclone in 1935 where it’s remained ever since (although there were a few attempts to refloat it).

Indian Head
Located at the far end of 75 Mile Beach Indian Head provides you with the opportunity for some more picture perfect moments due to the 360 degree views it has to offer. On top of that there’s some good wildlife spotting opportunities (including Tiger Sharks as it’s a breeding area for them) as well! The view from the headland is perfect to spot whales, sharks and a lot of other sea creatures.

This coastal headland was known as Tuckee, which means ‘stone’, to the Aboriginals who lived on Fraser Island many years ago. The headland was named Indian Head by Captain Cook when he passed it. Indian Head is yet another of Fraser Island’s iconic landmarks.

champagne-pools

Champagne Pools
You can find the beautiful Champagne Pools on the north part of the island, close to Indian Head and along 75 Mile Beach. Unlike any other swimming holes, Champagne Pools has a unique quality: it has tiny little bubbles looking like those when you drink champagne, hence the name Champagne Pools!

The Champagne pools are very popular swimming holes amongst Fraser Island visitors with the ocean crashing over the rocks, it truly is a magical place. The volcanic rocks that surround Champagne Pool ensure that it’s a safe place for swimmers. A natural wonder and a world class beauty.

With its lush, towering, hardwood rainforests, endless golden beaches and crystal clear freshwater lakes and streams, Fraser Island is a precious natural wonder and a place of exceptional beauty.

Fraser Island is 123km long and 22km wide (at the widest point), and covers an area of 184 000 hectares, making it the largest sand Island in the world!

Abundant in native flora and fauna, explore the tropical rainforests of Central Station, the coloured sands of the Cathedrals, and at Lake Allom, see fresh water turtles. Drive by 4WD along 75 mile beach, explore the sand dunes and swim in Lake Wabby . Picnic at Lake Garawongera or float down Eli Creek. See beautiful sunsets and meet new friends around the camp fire.

This stunning World Heritage listed paradise is also home to Australia’s purest Dingo bloodline, as well as dugongs, turtles, goannas, eastern curlews, dolphins, whales and many other species of Australian wildlife!
