Fraser Island Day 1

We’ll depart from Noosa nice & early at 7:30am. After we get your luggage in storage, you’ll be heading towards Rainbow Beach where you’ll be arriving after a 1.5-2hr drive. We stop at Rainbow Beach to inspect and collect the vehicles, hand signed rental agreements, pay $250 cash bond or $10 excess reduction fee, and to collect food and we’re on our way to the Island. We then take the ferry from Rainbow Beach and land at Hook Point on the Southern tip of Fraser Island approximately 10 min later. Depending on the weather, and the tide your guide will assess whether it is safe to travel on the beach or if we need to select an alternative route to our next destination – Eurong Resort where we have a break and some lunch (delicious sandwiches). Afterwards we drive up to Eli Creek and visit the famous Maheno Shpwreck. In the afternoon we visit Lake Wabby (the deepest lake on Fraser Island). Next up, we drive to your accommodation at Eurong Resort, where we’ll be arriving in the late afternoon. After a refreshing shower, it’s dinner time and time to enjoy the facilities of amazing Eurong Resort or walk on the beach.

Stay overnight at Eurong Resort on Fraser Island

Your second day on Fraser Island and we’ll be getting another early start, to ensure you get to make most of your time on this World Heritage listed island! After breakfast (continental style breakfast – cereal, toasts, spread, tea & coffee), after breakfast we head inland through some amazing rainforest where we can see some of the island’s unique flora and hopefully spot some wildlife too!

We then drive back through the rainforest on the way to the beach where we will stop for lunch before we depart the Island at approximately 2:30pm, stopping at Rainbow Beach first to drop off our vehicles, collect the bonds and drive back to Noosa by bus where you’ll be arriving around 5pm.
