Day 1 : Depart Rainbow Beach
We begin with a quick welcome, introduction at Freedom Rainbow Beach before loading up into your tour vehicle for the short 15-minute drive to meet the barge (ferry) on the beach at Inskip Point. The barge crossing is approximately 15 minutes and during that time you may be lucky enough to spot Dolphins or other marine life before arriving on the world’s largest sand island. Once you arrive, you’ll be traversing the eastern beach - K'gari's (Fraser Islands) own highway with speed limits! Settle in for the journey and enjoy the views as we head north along the beach before stopping for morning tea at one of the many freshwater creeks found on the island. Following morning tea, we will continue north towards the Maheno Shipwreck where we’ll stop to share the story of this important landmark especially it’s use as a hospital ship during wartime. We have lunch included for you today, the lunch destination will be up to your guide as they’ll find the best spot depending on where you are around that time of the day. We’ll finish up our afternoon at Eli Creek, a beautifully clear creek perfect for a refreshing swim/splash and relaxing sunbathe before heading to our camp.

Day 2 : K’gari (Fraser Island) Return to Rainbow Beach
Arise in the morning for a quick breakfast before we begin our second day on K'gari (Fraser Island)! The adventure begins as we drive south to Eurong before heading inland through everchanging vegetation to the rainforest at Central Station. Here you’ll depart your vehicle and follow your guide for a walk alongside beautiful Wanggoolba Creek, your guide will share the logging history of Central Station along with the indigenous significance of Wanggoolba Creek before sending you on a 1.8 km self-guided walk through the rainforest. You’ll reunite with your guide at the other end of the walk at Pile Valley where you’ll have morning tea surrounded by towering Satinay trees. From Pile Valley it’s a short drive to the famous Boorangoora (Lake McKenzie), arguably the most popular and picturesque highlight of K'gari (Fraser Island). Here, you can enjoy quality time lazing on the pristine sand beaches and swimming and relaxing in the lake's amazingly clear waters. We’ll then have lunch before packing up and heading back out to the Eastern Beach. Once back on the Eastern Beach we’ll head south to the barge (ferry).
