Home of the world’s largest sand island, the famous Maheno shipwreck and the iconic Lake Mackenzie, Fraser Island is one of the ‘must-see’ locations on the East coast of Australia. Offering Eco-Friendly tours and resorts, Fraser Island locals are doing their bit to lessen their environmental impact and preserve the natural beauty of the Island, which stretches over 123km in length!
Because of its rugged rainforest and endless beach, Fraser Island is a popular spot for 4WD-ing. You can choose to leave the driving to someone else and take a guided day or 2-3 day tour, or join a ‘tag-along’ tour where you can take turns driving in a convoy of vehicles. Whether you join a tour or not, you’ll need to board a ferry to reach the island – ferries depart daily from Rainbow Beach and Hervey Bay.
