Full description
Your adventure begins with pickup from your Hervey Bay accommodation, or make your own way to River Heads. Take a 40-minute ferry ride to Fraser Island, keeping a look out for dolphins, turtles, and other marine life. Once on the island, your local guide will take you to see the stunning natural sights.   Learn fascinating facts about the island’s history, and its fauna and flora. Travel in an air-conditioned bus to Central Station, a former logging station. Then stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk to discover the ancient king ferns, towering ghost gums, and pine trees. Continue to Lake McKenzie and swim in the crystal blue waters or relax on the sandy beaches. The next stop is Seventy-Five Mile Beach. Choose to take a flight over the island (at additional cost), or float down Eli Creek. Visit the Maheno shipwreck and enjoy a photo stop at the rusting wreck of the Maheno.

Great day on the island with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Sarg Mark was the best guide we could hope for giving us a lot of info on the history of the island. The pace was great: enough time to enjoy the different spots but not too long so we can see as much as possible. I definitely recommend (traveled with one 11 year old boy who had a great day).

Very happy with the tour guide. He was so informative and helpful. The tour is really good for the first timers who dont have any idea about what to expect and see on the island. If you want to enjoy the island the most. Get in your togs for the tour and get a spare set of clothes to change on the way back..

Te tour was very nice but my first guide (Bush or something like that) was so un polite with me because I was confused about the bus we have to board. He yell at me and he snatched my phone from my hands! and he pulled me to put the seat bel on me, I coulddo it by myself. Completely unnecessary. I reported him and the agency assigned to me another guide. The new one was very kind and professional.
