What You'll Get
Day 1: Rainbow Beach to Lake McKenzie
Pass By: Lake McKenzie, Fraser Island, Queensland 4581 Australia
We begin on the mainland with a morning brief at Freedom Rainbow Beach. At 9:30, once the brief is over and we’re packed and ready to go we depart for Fraser Island. After a short 10 minute drive to the ferry, we board for a short barge crossing to World Heritage listed Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island!
Once we land, we speed along what’s known by the locals as Fraser Island’s highway, the eastern beach! From the eastern beach we head to the picturesque Lake McKenzie, famous for its amazing scenery and almost crystal clear waters. Here we stop for lunch and for some time to chill out and enjoy the sun, sand and water. After enjoying a swim or working on your tan we drive up the beach to our private campsite. Here you won’t have to worry about the stress of setting up your tent! We’ve got you covered with permanent tents and comfortable beds. Once at the campsite we have an early dinner and some well-deserved drinks while we swap stories with our new found friends.
Accommodation included: Stay the night in permanent tents at our private campsite.
Day 2: Fraser Island to Rainbow Beach
Stop At: Indian Head, Fraser Island, Queensland 4581 Australia
We wake up in the morning for a quick breakfast before an awesome second day on Fraser Island. Depending on tidal conditions we’ll either head up to Indian Head, Fraser Island’s highest point, or drive to the beginning of the Lake Wabby walk.
If we go to Indian Head you’ll have the opportunity to try spot whales (seasonal) and sharks in the ocean. We’ll then head over to the Champagne Pools for a dip! Alternatively, if we go to Lake Wabby, you’ll get the chance to walk through epic sand dunes to a tropical paradise!
