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 Resort – where we have a break and some lunch (delicious sandwiches).
After lunch we drive up to Eli Creek and visit the famous Maheno Shipwreck and in the afternoon we visit Lake Wabby. Next up, we drive to your accommodation at Eurong Resort, arriving in the late afternoon.
