Fraser Explorer Premium Day Tour
What do you get when you combine the world’s largest sand island, with a dose of sunny Queensland weather, tropical waters and World Heritage-listed surrounds?
An incredible holiday destination, with something to suit everyone, and all just a few hours’ drive (and a short ferry trip) north of Brisbane.
If you’ve always wanted to see Fraser Island or revisit it, but never got round to it – then book a Fraser Explorer tour and explore the island with the experts. Our local guides take you on a natural adventure, in air conditioned comfort, to see the very best of Fraser – from Lake McKenzie to tall ancient rainforest’s and strikingly coloured sand cliffs.
So pack your camera and a sense of humour and get ready to see some of the best scenery this side of the east coast.
Your guide is a Fraser Island expert with local knowledge and a passion for the island. On this adventurous day out, you’ll drive across sand tracks to explore some of the most beautiful, natural spots and listen to fascinating facts about the island’s history, fauna and flora. Our custom designed 4WD buses are air-conditioned for your comfort.
Central Station – this former logging station that housed schools and shops for the bustling timber industry is now a tourist stop. Stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient King Ferns, towering Ghost Gums and Pine trees.
Lake McKenzie – enjoy a revitalising swim in the crystal blue waters and relax on the sandy white beaches… it’s picture perfect!
Seventy-Five Mile Beach – as you drive along this sandy highway, you may spot birds of prey flying above or humpback whales as they migrate past (between July – November). You may wish to join the
Air Fraser team for a scenic flight over the island – book with your guide on tour (optional extra).
Eli Creek – float down this fast-flowing freshwater creek pouring out 80 megalitres of water daily into the ocean.
Maheno Shipwreck – enjoy a photo stop at the rusting wreck of the Maheno washed ashore during an out-of-season cyclone in 1935 – it’s one of Fraser Island’s most recognisable sites.
The Pinnacles Coloured Sands – learn how these technicolour sand formations were created and the Butchulla.
