The two-day adventure includes all your main meals, dorm style accommodation and your barge transfers. With plenty of time to explore you will have the chance to visit stunning lakes, the Maheno shipwreck, the Pinnacles coloured sands, walk through rainforest, roar down 75 Mile Beach in your pink 4WD and so much more. With the exciting chance to self drive on the world-famous sand island this tour has something for everyone!
Your day begins with a 7:30 am safety briefing for drivers, followed by pickups from Hervey Bay accommodation at 8am. From there it’s to the shops to get snacks and any other supplies you require for the tour before boarding the 10:15am barge at River Heads bound for Fraser Island!
Once on the island you will check in to your beach lodge accommodation at Happy Valley on Fraser’s Eastern beach. This dorm style accommodation is equipped with hot showers, barbecues, a beach bar and beach access. All your main meals are cooked as a group and dietary requirements are catered for!
All in accordance with the tides over the two days you will have the opportunity to swim at Lake Wabby and Lake Garawonger and also, Eli Creek where you can float with tubes! Walk through the tropical rainforest at Pile Valley and Central Station, visit Lake McKenzie whose awe-inspiring beauty makes it probably the most visited natural site on the island with its pure white sand acting as a filter, giving the water its captivating clarity.
You will definitely want to photograph Maheno Shipwreck and see the Pinnacles coloured sands and the best thing is you share all this with like minded travelers on this unique ‘tagalong’ adventure in your iconic pink 4WD!
At night we will wrap up back at the beach lodge where you can relax in the Dingo Bar before dinner with new friends! If you want to keep the evening going head down to the beach and enjoy the stars, use the torches to look for wildlife - the guide will takes a speaker so you can listen to music.
The afternoon of day two you’ll head to the barge at Kingfisher Bay in time to grab an ice cream or drink while you wait to depart.
You will arrive back in Hervey Bay approximately 6 - 6.15pm. However, as Fraser Island is a remote location it is recommended that you don’t book bus departures for the return evening, just in case there are delays.
