DAY 1 – We depart from Noosa nice & early at 7:30am so make sure you’re up and ready to go. After your luggage is safe in storage we’ll be heading towards Rainbow Beach (a 1.5-2hr drive). We stop at Rainbow Beach for a look around and a coffee break. We collect and inspect the vehicles, sign the rental agreements, pay $250 cash bond (refundable) or $10 excess reduction fee (non refundable) for every passenger to pay whether eligible to drive or not. Drivers need to be over 21yrs of age with over 2 years of driving experience with a valid drivers licence (photo copied licences not accepted), and to collect food. Then we’re on our way to the Island!
We take the 10 minute ferry journey from Rainbow Beach to Hook Point on the Southern tip of Fraser Island. Depending on the weather, and the tide, your guide will assess whether it’s safe to travel on the beach or if we need to select a different route to the next destination – Eurong Beach Resort – where we have a break and some lunch (delicious sandwiches).
After lunch we head inland through some amazing rainforest where we’ll see some of the island’s unique flora and hopefully spot some wildlife too! Our destination for the afternoon is Lake McKenzie, famous for its clear blue water and sandy beach. We then drive back through the rainforest on the way to our accommodation at Eurong Resort, where we’ll be arriving in the late afternoon. After a refreshing shower, it’s dinner time!

DAY 2 – Your second day means another early start because we want you to make the most of your time on the island! After a continental style breakfast – cereal, toasts, spread, tea & coffee, we drive up to stunning Eli Creek. This is the largest freshwater creek on the Eastern Coast of the Island. It carves its way through to the beach and pours 80 million litres of water a day into the Pacific Ocean!
After spending some quality time here, we’ll be heading up to the famous Maheno Shipwreck. The Maheno was driven ashore on Fraser Island during a cyclone in 1935 and provides you with some awesome photo opportunities. Next up, we continue north past the Coloured Sands comprising of 72 different colours of sand.
After a lunch stop (wraps,) and a break, we continue driving up to Indian Head. Indian Head is a large rocky headland, which is great for shark spotting and stunning views over the island! After taking in the breathtaking scenery, we’ll head over to our final stop of the day: Champagne Pools. This is a popular swimming hole with the ocean crashing over the rocks into shallow sandy pools. After an action-packed day we head back to our accommodation at Eurong Resort!

After lunch, it’s time to leave the island at around 2:30pm. Following a brief stop at Rainbow Beach we drive back to Noosa arriving at around 5pm. Just in time for your exclusive post-tour party at KB’s bar with a drink and nibbles! An amazing end to an amazing trip!
