Indian Head


Captain Cook called this site Indian Head when he passed by on 19 May 1770, due to the Aboriginal people he saw gathered there. The local Butchulla people themselves referred to this landmark as “Tuckee” which translated means stone. However you describe it, it has etched itself into Fraser Island folklore and is now a popular tourist destination.

Head to the most easterly part of the island at the end of 75 Mile Beach, stand on this lookout, and you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the beach to the north and south. On a good day you can also see manta rays, sharks and whales. Fishermen love this area for its Tailor population. The lookout itself was originally created from volcanic activity dating back 50 to 80 million years.
